BackgroundEdit

Gomez explained that the song originated as a "joke" after having confirmed her relationship with soccer player Sebastian Lletget, who is four years older than her. She started using the hashtag "#6DaysTillMAYORES" on Twitter which eventually started trending. A number became lower with each passing day, until it reached "#MAYORESOutNow". The original version is performed by Gomez solo, and features less production on the line "A mi me gustan mas grandes/ que no me quepan en la boca/ los besos que quiera darme," originally being: "A mi me gustan mas grandes/ que con un beso en la boca/ me haga volar en el aire". This lyric caused controversy and received more backlash after a video of young girls singing along to the song in school surfaced on the internet.

Chart performanceEdit

"Mayores" debuted at number 12 on the Hot Latin Songs chart, making it Gomez's highest debut peak position on that chart. The song eventually peaked at number 3 on the charts.

The song also debuted at number 72 on the Spanish PROMUSICAE chart. It rose to number 4 four weeks later, making it her highest peaking position, surpassing the number 37 peak of "Shower". It later reached number one.

Eventually the song charted in the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number 74; it is Gomez's fourth entrance in the chart in more than two years, after "Shower" (2014) was a top twenty hit, her collaboration with Cher Lloyd, "Oath" (2012), peaked at number 73 and "Can't Stop Dancin'" (2014) peaked at number 88 in early 2015.

Music videoEdit

The music video, filmed in Los Angeles, was uploaded on Gomez's Vevo account on July 13, 2017.[5] It marks the third time Gomez works with director Daniel Duran; it features the appearance American actor Casper Smart. The video reached 1 billion views in January 2018 and has over 1.4 billion views as of December 2018; it is Gomez's most watched video, and her fourth video to surpass 100 million views. The music video was able to reach the list of most-viewed Vevo videos at number 45, and is the 67th most-viewed YouTube video.

PremiseEdit

The clip sees Gomez lying on a couch spliced with scenes of her and Bad Bunny at a bar. Casper Smart, playing an old rich man, enters the place and is attracted to Gomez. He takes her to his house as Bad Bunny raps his verses at the bar. These scenes are also cut with the singers in the roof of a building at night. Gomez seduces Smart and handcuffs him to the bed. She plays with his watch before getting off the bed and leaving with a bag full of money. Bad Bunny appears to be waiting for her, and they kiss before getting in the car. The video ends as the duo is about to drive off.
