Gomez wrote "Bad Liar" with help from Julia Michaels, whose own single "Issues" is in the Top 20 on the Hot 100 right now, and Justin Tranter. That's the same pair that helped craft previous Gomez hits like "Hands to Myself" and "Good for You."
Tranter explained the origins of the Talking Heads sample in an interview with Variety. "Selena and Julia are Talking Heads-obsessed," he said. "So when we all got together in one room, Julia suggested, 'Why don't we just write over the bassline from 'Psycho Killer?' and we were all going, 'That sounds great!'"
Gomez's last album, Revival, came out in 2015. She put out "It Ain't Me," a collaboration with the electronic producer Kygo, in February. "It Ain't Me" is currently sitting at No. 11 on the Hot 100.
