Selena Gomez’s ‘Buscando Amor’ Lyrics Say a Lot About How She Sees Dating Now

In February, Selena Gomez teased on an Instagram Live that she was particularly excited about her track Buscando Amor” (“Looking for Love” in English) to be released on her Spanish EP REVELACIÓN. The album dropped last night, and lyrically, it’s clear why “Buscando Amor” is one of her favorites. The song could easily be interpreted as Gomez’s way of telling everyone where she stands on dating right now: She is happily single and at peace just enjoying her life with her friends. It’s a healthy, empowering place for her and everyone to be.

As Gomez puts it in two revealing verses, “No están buscando na’ (they’re not looking for anything) / Están bien así como están (they’re fine the way they are).”

Gomez herself has been single for the last few years (her last public relationships were with The Weeknd in 2017 and Justin Bieber from late 2017 to early 2018). She spoke in an interview earlier this week with the LA Times about being content with being single as she prioritizes her career and wellbeing.

Specifically, Gomez was asked about the fan reaction to PDA photos of her and her Only Murders in the Building co-star Aaron Dominguez in character. Some fans didn’t realize he was her love interest in the show, assumed they were dating, and harassed him. Gomez said, “we had just started working together. I honestly thought, ‘No wonder guys don’t want to date me!’ I think people only care [about my love life] because I’m young, and the older I get the less they’ll care. For now it’s a part of the job that I don’t really like. I’m actually grateful that I’m not involved with anyone right now.”

A source echoed this to Entertainment Tonight in December. “She is comfortable dating, but also comfortable being single,” the source said. “She’s not rushing into anything whatsoever. Selena is focusing on what makes her happy and what feels good to her—whether that’s a relationship or not.”

Buscando Amor,” thus, serves as a singles anthem, lyrically and rhythmically. Take in the Spanish lyrics (and their English) translation, as well as listen to the song, below:

Salen pa’ que la vean / they (the girls) go out so that she can be seen
Se pierden en el ritmo / they (the girls) get lost in the rhythm
No están buscando amor / they’re not looking for love
No están buscando amor / they’re not looking for love

Deja que te lleve el ritmo / let the rhythm take over you
Así es que me gusta, así mismo / that’s how I like it, like that
La noche está pa’ más, no me limito / the night is still young and I won’t limit myself
La música está buena y no resisto / the music feels so good and I can’t resist

Salen pa’ que la vean que le gusta bailar / they (the girls) go out so that she can be seen, she loves to dance
Se pierden en el ritmo y comienzan a olvidar / they (the girls) get lost in the rhythm and start to forget
No están buscando na’ / they’re not looking for anything
Están bien así como están / they’re fine the way they are
Que no le hablen de amor / don’t talk to her about love
Que eso con ella no va / that’s not for her

Hoy salimos incognito / today we go out incognito
Vamos a meternos en un lío / we’re going to get in trouble
Solo estamos vacilando, baby / we’re only having fun baby
No estamos buscando anillo / we’re not out looking for a ring
Cuando ponen la música le damos con to’ / when they play music, we go all out
A quién no le gusta una latina bailando reggaetón / who doesn’t love a Latina who dances reggaeton
Vente, si quieres probar / come over here, if you want to try
Vete, si te vas a enamorar / go away, if you’re going to fall in love

Hasta que amanezca no paramos / we’re not stopping until the sun comes out
Se acaba la fiesta si nos vamos / if we leave, the party is over
Con el cel apagao / with their phones off
Ellas / the girls

Salen pa’ que la vean que le gusta bailar / they (the girls) go out so that she can be seen, she loves to dance
Se pierden en el ritmo y comienzan a olvidar / they (the girls) get lost in the rhythm and start to forget
No están buscando na’ / they’re not looking for anything
Están bien así como están / they’re fine the way they are
Que no le hablen de amor / don’t talk to her about love
Que eso con ella no va / that’s not for her

Salen pa’ que la vean que le gusta bailar / they (the girls) go out so that she can be seen, she loves to dance
Se pierden en el ritmo y comienzan a olvidar / they (the girls) get lost in the rhythm and start to forget
No están buscando na’ / they’re not looking for anything
Están bien así como están / they’re fine the way they are
Que no le hablen de amor / don’t talk to her about love
Que eso con ella no va / that’s not for her
