Charli XCX Explains Why She Gave Selena Gomez Her Song 'Same Old Love'

Did you know that Charli XCX wrote the song “Same Old Love,” which was recorded and released by Selena Gomez?

The 24-year-old “Break the Rules” singer recently spoke to Grazia Australia about why she gave the song to Selena.

“There’s been some songs I wished I’d kept. Actually ‘Same Old Love’ was one of those songs that once I’d heard Selena sing it – and she sounded so great – I was like, ‘Oh my god, I want this song for myself.’ But then, I kind of realized it was actually the perfect home for that song because coming from [Gomez], it meant kind of a lot more than coming from me,” Charli told the mag. “Partly because she had such a high profile relationship which was all over the press, it felt very real coming from her and I think a lot of the audience could really connect because of what had been going on. It was cool that really brought that song to life.”

“This particular song was something I had written and she loved it and felt it related to her and that’s really how that came about,” she added.
