Selena Gomez is in a "lovely" place with boyfriend Benny Blanco!

The Only Murders in the Building actress, 31, stopped by New Music Daily on Apple Music 1 and chatted with host Zane Lowe about her new single “Love On” on Thursday.

While discussing her latest release, Gomez also opened up on how her relationship with Blanco, 35, makes her feel safe.

“Without getting into too much detail, I think it's just really important to meet someone that respects you,” the artist explained. “And I think it's really nice to also lean on someone who understands the world that I live in. But I'd have to say overall it's the safest that I feel and it's been really lovely and I've only grown through it, so it's awesome.”

She and the record producer to the stars confirmed their relationship in December 2023, though they’ve known each other much longer.


In 2019, they collaborated on the song “I Can’t Get Enough,” which also features Tainy and J Balvin.

Speaking to Lowe, 50, about how she chooses who to work with, Gomez admitted that she doesn’t “feel very safe in a lot of rooms.”

“But I find that when I work with new people, it's actually really fun to connect on what they're walking through in life,” she said.

“And it's like, oh, working with some great songwriters who know friends of friends and things like that. But I think it's also important that I stay with my core group because they're the people that can crack the code with me the best. They're the ones that can really help me explain what I want to say.”

Gomez shared a clip of her new music video for “Love On” on her social media, as well as photos from the set of the video shoot.
