Anyone who enjoys surprises? On October 1, Selena Gomez attended Coldplay’s concert in Pasadena, California, and joined the band onstage. Gomez reportedly joined the ensemble on stage to assist in performing “Let Somebody Go,” which thrilled the Rose Bowl crowd, according to Billboard. After the show, Gomez posted a heartfelt message to her Instagram account with the caption, “Thank you @coldplay @hermusicofficial for an amazing night.” H.E.R. Chvrches and Coldplay opened the performance earlier in the tour. In the video Gomez posted on Instagram Stories, she can be seen standing next to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin as a piano, and H.E.R. also makes a cameo. She had to add a memorable guitar solo to the performance because it’s H.E.R. In October 2021, not too long after the band’s album Music of the Spheres was published, Gomez joined the band for the song’s television debut performance on The Late Late Show with James Corden. On the album, “Let Somebody Go” is the fifth track.
In August, the singer released her own song, “Single Soon.” What her fans should anticipate from her next album was a topic she covered in an interview with Vanity Fair back in February. Gomez stated that she would definitely write ballads for the rest of her life if given the chance, but she also wants to create music that will make listeners smile. “The songs I’m writing right now are inspired by real life experiences. It has a lot of strength, power, and pop. The overall subject is freedom, especially liberation from attachments and the dark. She is presently starring with Martin Short and Steve Martin in Only Murders in the Building on Hulu in addition to working on the record. The performer and actress will host the Rare Impact Fund Benefit in Los Angeles on October 4 in addition to working on her Rare Beauty collection. Below is fan-recorded video of the “Let Somebody Go” performance from the Pasadena concert.
