Selena Gomez shared a stripped-down, unplugged performance of her song "Rare" with fans on Monday, Billboard reports. The song was recorded live at the Village Studio, with Gomez accompanied by an acoustic guitar and a single backup singer. This version of the title track to her new album is in stark contrast to the more visually stunning official video. The live clip opens with Gomez rehearsing and joking around with her crew before diving into the introspective lyrics. "Baby, you’ve been so distant from me lately/ And lately/ Don’t even wanna call you baby/ Saw us getting older/ Burning toast in the toaster/ My ambitions were too high," she sings.
