Selena Gomez and Trevor Daniel decided to team up and release his ‘Past Life’ song remix on June 26th with a video that was shot via Instagram Live.
2020 has been a rollercoaster of a year so far, with most of it going downhill, but Selena Gomez has been using her time and fame wisely.
Selena started the year by releasing her deluxe version of her ‘Rare’ album, along with bonus songs. She has also been raising lots of funds for COVID-19 relief campaigns.
As well as lending her platform to Black Lives Matter co-founder Alicia Garza, rapper and activist Killer Mike, and former Georgia gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams. This was done so that they could raise awareness of systemic race.
Selena Gomez recently decided to team up Trevor Daniel, making an epic lyric video shot on Instagram live, which included their friends, one being Selena’s manager Aleen Keshishian as well as songwriter Finneas who was typing out the lyrics in the comments.
Selena said in a Zoom ball with Trevor that she shared ahead of the remix’s release, “When I heard the song the first time I loved that the fact that it was, kind of like a story about all the things we tend to hold onto and the patterns that we have.”
“And I’m very, very, very vocal about my personal experiences. You know, making decisions that aren’t necessarily healthy for me,” Selena added.
The lyrics of ‘Past Life’ explore what it means to let go of the person you were in the past, to accept the journey that you’ve been on that cannot be erased but instead look forward and take care of your mental health while also promising to be a better person to the people you’ve used in your life.
Selena also announced recently that she has partnered with Plus1 to launch the Black Equality Fund. The fund will “drive money and awareness to those who are at the forefront of the movement fighting for change.” The donations will go towards 10 different organizations that are striving for equality and justice for the Black community.
It’s all of our responsibly to fight for equality & justice for the Black community. Silence isn’t an option, let’s all join this fight for equality. https://t.co/3qlCVG5Jh9
