On Tuesday May 16, the singer uploaded a quick Instagram video of streaking lines running on the monitor of a 90s-style Panasonic VCR TV -- a light blinks, possibly indicating that a tape is being rewound. The background audio features a synth-pop guitar melody with rhythmic hand claps to correspond.
While there's no vocals included in the teasers, Gomez captioned her TV post, "#BadLiar 5.18," insinuating that the song is coming May 18, just two days after posting the snippet. She also posted pictures of what looks like lipstick on a mirror, seemingly including lyrics to the new track, including "Trying not to think about you," "Trying to play it coy" and "Trying to distract myself."
