The third time’s the charm for Selena Gomezin a land Down Under…
The 27-year-old Mexican American singer/actress’third solo album, Rare, becomes her first chart-topping album on Australia’s ARIA Charts.
It’s Gomez’s fifth album to appear on the ARIA Charts (3 solo, 2 as Selena & the Scene). It’s her third successive Top 10 album after Stars Dance(HP-8, July 2013) and Revival(HP-3, October 2015).
Three singles from the album have charted so far, with the album’s title track debuting at No.23 this week, while it was preceded by “Lose You to Love Me” (HP-2, TW-20) and “Look at Her Now” (HP-29, TW-84).
Selena Gomez may be rare-in’ to the top of the charts…
The 27-year-old Mexican American singer/actress’ new studio album Rare is aiming for a possible No. 1 debut on next week’s Billboard 200 chart, according to industry forecasters.
Gomez’s latest effort, which was released on January 10 via Interscope Records, may launch atop the tally dated January 25 with between 110,000 to 130,000 equivalent album units earned in the U.S. in the week ending January 16.
Rareis Gomez’s first album since 2015’s Revival, which bowed at No. 1 with 117,000 equivalent album units earned in its first week, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.
It marked her second leader, following 2013’s Stars Dance.
Rare was led by the songs “Lose You to Love Me” and “Look at Her Now.” The former became her first No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, vaulting 15-1 on the list dated November 9, 2019. On the current Hot 100, the track sits at No. 10. Meanwhile, on the latest Pop Songs airplay chart, which ranks the most played songs at top 40-formatted radio stations, “Lose You to Love Me” rises 3-2.
Meanwhile, the current No. 1 champ, Roddy Ricch’s Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial, has a chance of holding on to the top slot for a third nonconsecutive week. As of January 14, prognosticators indicate the rapper’s album could tally upwards of 110,000 units — or more. The album is riding high thanks in large part to its single “The Box.”
The Billboard 200chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA).
The 27-year-old Mexican American singer/actress has released her highly anticipated third solo album, Rare.
The album reflects redemption after a few rough years for Gomez, including lupus troubles, a kidney transplant and relationship drama.
“Honestly, this album was kind of a nightmare to deal with, but in the best way possible,” Gomez recently told Spotifyof the process. “I thought that I was so ready like two years ago…. I had collected all of these sessions, beautiful sessions, that I don’t even remember half of them because it evolved each year.”
“And then something would happen to me and it would be very drastic, so that it would take me somewhere else,” she continued. “And then all of a sudden I found this healing, and I saw something bigger than what I thought that I was. And I think that also added the whole end of the album.”
Rare includes previously released singles “Lose You to Love Me” and “Look At Her Now.”
The 27-year-old Mexican American singer/actress is preparing to release her eagerly anticipated third studio album, Rare, later this week.
But she’s celebrating the album with her fans one night before.
Gomez announced on Sunday night that Selenators can gather around their devices on Thursday night (January 9) for an iHeartRadioalbum release party special.
“I can’t wait to share this special moment with you only on @livexlive!” she tweeted.
The album, officially due out on Friday (January 10), will get an early preview during the Los Angeles Livestream special honoring the follow-up to Gomez’s 2015 album Revival.
In addition to an “intimate look into the details” of the album, special will also feature an exclusive Q&A with KIIS FM‘s JoJo Wright.
“It’s the most honest music I’ve ever made and I can’t wait for you to hear my heart,” Gomez tweeted last month along with a grainy video featuring snippets of the videos for the singles released from the album so far, including “Lose You to Love Me” and “Look At Her Now,” as well as first listens to the bouncy title track, the slinky “Cut You Off” and “A Sweeter Place,” which features Kid Cudi.
Fans can listen and tune into the special for free at 10:00 pm ET/ 7:00 pm PT here through the LiveXLivemobile and OTT apps for iOS, Android, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Samsung TV and Apple TV. The stream will also appear on YouTube, LiveXLive’s Twitch channel and LiveXLive’s socials and fans can listen live by tuning into their local iHeartMedia CHR and Hot AC radio stations across the country.
