Selena Gomez channeled her inner Samantha Jones ahead of releasing her new single — and earned Kim Cattrall’s approval.

Gomez, 30, took to Instagram on Tuesday, August 22, to promote her song “Single Soon.” In the video, she used a clip of an iconic Sex and the City conversation between Samantha (played by Cattrall, 67) and a married man named Ken Shear. In the scene, which appears in the episode “Three’s a Crowd,” Ken tells Samantha he’s leaving his wife for her, to which she replies, “Who is this?”

In the video, Gomez made a phone gesture with her hand while mouthing Samantha’s sassy lines. She looked into her hand and made a feisty facial expression before smirking at the camera. To end the clip, Gomez spun around and flipped her ponytail over her back.

Gomez got glammed up for the video and rocked a neon orange corset, big gold hoops and a pearl necklace. She teamed the ensemble with laminated eyebrows, pink lips and long lashes.
