Who wrote the song Who Says by Selena Gomez?

Released in March 2011, as the lead single from When the Sun Goes Down, the third and final studio album by American band Selena Gomez & the Scene, the song Who Says was written by Emanuel Kiriakou and Priscilla Renea.

When the song was released on March 14, 2011, Selena Gomez was 18 years old. She turned 19 on July 22, 2011. The song was recorded when she was 16.

“The message for me personally is that…I feel that girls my age tend to question themselves a lot. They tend to dress and be what other people want them to be. I feel that everyone wants to follow the trends and what’s ‘cool’ and eventually, at the end of the day when you strip all of that down, are you really proud of yourself and comfortable in your skin?”

“There are moments every day when I feel insecure and not good enough. I hope that the song really inspires my fans to embrace who they are,” she added about the meaning of Who Says.

In June 2017, Selena told Elvis Duran and the Morning Show that Who Says is her favorite song.

“I’m always honest with you guys, I think in the beginning I don’t really know what a 15 or 15-year-old was going to be talking about,” Selena said.

“There wasn’t enough experience for me to understand what these words I was saying were gonna have meaning or weight. My favorite song, one of the favorite songs that I’ve ever done is still ‘Who Says,’ which I recorded when I was 16. Because of the message, that’s what I felt like I wanted to give my fan base and other than that, I don’t really know what I was doing.”

“I think I was just figuring out my voice and figuring out what was comfortable,” she added. “It wasn’t until ‘The Heart Wants What It Wants’ that I had that moment where it clicked, where I realized there was such freedom in me being honest with where I was.”

“It’s like a yearbook,” she said. “You look at the pictures and you’re like, I thought I looked so good and I did not! So it’s like that feeling a little bit.”

Ricardo Joel Gomez’s daughter upped her game in the fashion stakes as she was seen rocking not one, not two, but three chic ensembles while doing press in the British capital. All eyes were on Selena when she arrived at the BBC Radio 1 studios.
