anitaya: The music video is shot in black and white. It starts off with Selena Gomez talking about her emotions and then the song starts. “The Heart Wants What It Wants” is a mid-tempo pop song that talks about Selena Gomez’s relationship with Justin Bieber. In the song, Selena sings about how there are many reasons why her relationship with him should end but she still loves him and can’t let go. She feels like something is missing when he is not with her. She sings about being in love with him and feeling a lot of mixed emotions without him. They had many breathless moments and she is unclear about the future of their relationship.
ccooony: I felt that this was a mature, truthful, and emotional song that conveys Selena’s feelings about her relationship. Especially because the music video is in black and white, it brings more attention towards the song and the meaning behind it rather than having a flashy eye-catching video with a lot of colors. The chorus is memorable and her voice is filled with emotion since this song is meaningful to her. I think that it’s a beautiful song and a way to express her feelings and thoughts on her current relationship status.
