I dive into the future, but I’m blinded by the sun. I’m reborn in every moment, so who knows what I’ll become. You already knew you were in for a treat as soon as she had uttered the first lines of Revival, the first track off her album of the same name.

Selena Gomez belted hit after hit last Sunday, July 31 at the Mall of Asia Arena. The singer served up some serious style and bada*sery in an all-black leather outfit with her sunnies on, a troupe of dancers in bedazzled masks trailing behind.

She started the show with the sassy Same Old Love, following it up with one of her earlier hits as a solo artist, Come and Get It.

“This means so much to me”, she shared to the crowd as the dreamy Sober, a song about being love drunk, plays.

Donning a black coat, thigh-high boots and muay thai shorts in the country’s colors, she captivated the crowd with her performance of sultry, self-love anthem Good For You.  Club bangers like the house-influenced Survivors, the EDM-inspired Slow Down and Love You Like a Love Song had us low-key dancing to the beat.

She asked the Selenators to sing along as she performed a personal favorite, the cheeky Hands to Myself.

Disney fans were treated to the self-empowering Who Says.

 

Slowing it down, she played the piano for a cover of Hillsong Worship’s Transfiguration, Nobody and fresh new track Feel Me.

 

She set the stage on fire, proving that all she needs is her girlfriends and the music with a medley of crossover hits Me & My Girls, Me & the Rhythm and Body Heat.

Every thing turned into a disco wonderland with candy-colored light projections, Dia de los Muertos visuals and giant inflatable roses adorning the stage. She surprised fans with a performance of the ‘80s classic Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This). She closes the show with the power trio of her life mantra Kill Em With Kindness, the Zedd collaboration hit I Want You To Know and an upbeat remix of Revival. ADVT.
