"Same Old Love" is a song recorded by American singer Selena Gomez for her second studio album, Revival (2015). The track was written by Charli XCX, Ross Golan, and its producers Stargate and Benny Blanco. It was first composed by XCX and Stargate, later recorded by Gomez without the former in the studio at the time. "Same Old Love" is a midtempo electropop and synthpop song backed by a wonky piano loop, a finger-click beat and Italo disco synths. Gomez uses an uncharacteristic forceful, emotive tone and raspy delivery, accompanied by XCX on background vocals. Lyrically, "Same Old Love" is a torch song. According to Gomez, the lyrics are a representation of various stages of different relationships and are about getting rid of everything toxic in her life, also inspired by her relationship with her father.
"Same Old Love" was released as the second single from Revival on September 10, 2015. A number of remixes were commissioned for its release, including an official remix featuring rapper Fetty Wap. The single received generally positive reviews from music critics who complimented its catchy tune and understated, moody sound. The song peaked at number six on the US Billboard Hot 100, marking Gomez's fourth top 10 single. "Same Old Love" also reached number two on the US Mainstream Top 40 chart and the top 10 in Canada, the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
It was accompanied by a music video directed by Michael Haussman and filmed in the Broadway Theater District of Los Angeles. It premiered as an Apple Music exclusive on September 22, 2015 and was well received by critics who complimented Gomez's styling and the emotional storyline. The video was inspired by Gomez's relationships with her loved ones and fans, and singer Tony Bennett. It featured Gomez witnessing several dramatic vignettes on the streets of Los Angeles, and performing at a theater. Gomez promoted "Same Old Love" with several televised performances, including on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and at the 2015 American Music Awards.
