Selenators rejoice! After so much teasing, 's new single "Bad Liar" is finally here, and it's definitely worth the wait. The track is a perfect summer banger as it is so catchy with heavy bass and clapping sound, backing Selena's smooth and sweet vocal.

Some people may find the music familiar. That is because it has a striking similarity with rock band Talking Heads' classic song "Psycho Killer". Selena's label Interscope reportedly played the song for the '80s band's guitarist David Byrne, and he liked it so much. The 65-year-old guitarist "wholeheartedly gave his permission" to Selena to use the riff on the new track.

"I was walking down the street the other day/ Trying to distract myself/ Then I see your face/ Ooh, you got someone else/ Trying to play it coy/ Trying to make it disappear/ But just like the battle of Troy/ There's nothing subtle here," Selena sings about her being a bad liar for hiding her jealousy.



Since the release, fans have flooded the comment section of the audio on YouTube with love confession. A fan gushes, "She sound so different! Her vocals really improved! This is so amazing!" Another fan praises Selena's sweet voice, writing, "her voice is like cotton candy smooth and sweet." Meanwhile, another cannot hide her excitement, writing, "Holy f**k I've been waiting for this song. THIS IS F**KING AWESOME, Love it."

"Bad Liar" is expected to be featured on Selena's upcoming album. Following the release, the pop star reportedly plans a surprise performance at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards on May 21.
