    One of the keys to the success of Selena Gomez thus far as a pop star has been the infectious energy that burst forth in her hits. Her singles with the band as Selena Gomez and the Scene were suffused with irresistible, usually uptempo, hooks. She was the most easily likable of teen pop stars. Now, at age 20, she is faced with the need to transition to being an adult pop artist. The gently loping island hook is here on "Come and Get It," but the midtempo beat soon induces almost a sleepiness in the listener. The new adult Selena Gomez simply isn't nearly as much fun.

    Creating a world beat stew of Indian beats, tribal chants, island rhythms, and a technological sheen is a great idea, but everything here feels overly polished and fails to truly invite the listener in. Despite the waiting for rekindling of romance in the lyrics, Selena Gomez has quashed rumors that the song is somehow about her and ex boyfriend Justin Bieber. Reportedly, the song was originally written for Rihanna and then later discarded. It seems the writers were on target. It is easy to imagine Rihanna performing "Come and Get It."

    "Come and Get It" is likely to grow on a number of listeners. That loping beat with Indian drums is infectious. However, there is not enough depth to make even a song this short consistently interesting. The return of Selena Gomez is welcome, and we will eagerly await the full-length album that will follow in the wake of "Come and Get It," but this does dampen the enthusiasm somewhat.
