“I am incredibly proud of my Latin background,” Gomez said about her new single in a statement. “It felt empowering to sing in Spanish again and ‘De Una Vez’ is such a beautiful love anthem.”

The track, produced by Tainy, Albert Hype, Jota Rosa and NEON16, premiered alongside a music video directed by Los Pérez.

The visual finds Gomez in a mythical house surrounded by magical visuals, where she steps into rooms representative of her evolution.

Toward the end of the video, the words “Baila Conmigo” emerge, hinting at a potential second Spanish single.

Following the release, she posted on Twitter: “This is the beginning of something I’ve wanted to explore for so long. I hope you love it as much as I do.”

It’s safe to say that fans love “De Una Vez” already, with a fan posting, “Selena you sound so good the vocals I’m shaking.” Another wrote, “it’s a masterpiece.”

Earlier Thursday, Gomez confirmed she was dropping a Spanish song, releasing the cover art for “De Una Vez.” She then retweeted her 2011 tweet where she had teased Spanish music was coming. “I think it will be worth the wait,” she added.

“De Una Vez,” released via Interscope Records and UMG, drops just a few days after zealous fans started speculating on social media that she’d drop Spanish-language music soon after several murals promoting new music were spotted across Mexico. “Mexican Selenator took a picture with a painted wall in Sayulita, Mexico,” the fan page Selena Gomez Worldwide tweeted.

The song is the singer’s second Spanish-language track. She released “Un Año Sin Lluvia,” the Spanish version of her hit single “A Year Without Rain,” in 2010.

The Hollywood Records release sold 97,000 copies in its first week — a career-high frame for the singer.

Each of her four albums has steadily grown larger in their debut weeks, bowing with successively bigger sums and placing higher on the chart.

Her 2009 debut, Kiss and Tell, opened at No. 9 with nearly 66,000. It was followed by the No. 4-ranking A Year Without Rain in 2010 (which slightly exceeded 66,000) and then 2011’s When the Sun Goes Down (No. 3 peak, a week after it launched at No. 4 with 78,000).

Gomez has been red hot this year, scoring her biggest hit single yet with the lead track from “Stars Dance” “Come & Get It.” The cut sailed to No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 (her first top 10) and No. 2 on the Pop Songs airplay chart.

Gomez, who just turned 21 last week, is also the youngest solo female artist to hit No. 1 since her friend Taylor Swift in 2010. On the chart dated Nov. 13 of that year, the then-20-year old Swift debuted at the top with her second leader, Speak Now.

Her latest album, Stars Dance, should debut atop the Billboard 200 with approximately 90,000 to 100,000 copies sold in the week ending Sunday, July 28, according to Industry sources.

The set is Gomez’s fourth studio album, and was released on Tuesday, July 23 via Hollywood Records.

The new Billboard 200 chart’s top 10 will be revealed on the morning of Wednesday, July 31.

If Stars Dance records sales of more than 78,000, it will mark Gomez’s largest sales week ever.

Her last album, 2011’s When the Sun Goes Down (credited to Selena Gomez and the Scene), arrived with a career-high week of 78,000 — according to Nielsen SoundScan.

It debuted at No. 4, rising to No. 3 a week later. Since her 2009 debut, Kiss and Tell, Gomez has been steadily improving in terms of chart rank and debut sales frames. Kiss started at No. 9 with just under 66,000. The following year, A Year Without Rain opened at No. 4 with a little over 66,000.

Gomez’s new album is powered by her biggest single yet, “Come & Get It.” It peaked at No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No. 2 on Pop Songs chart. Gomez has been making the promotion rounds during the album’s release week as well. She played The Tonight Show With Jay Leno on Tuesday and then hits both Good Morning America and Live With Kelly and Michael on Friday.

Gomez Planning to Release Spanish-Language Album

Selena Gomez is ready to embrace her Latin roots through musica

The 19-year-old half-Mexican American singer/actress has confirmed plans to release her first Spanish-language album in the near future.

In a recent interview with HollywoodLife.com, Gomez confirmed that the Spanish-language album isn’t just in the works, it’s actually finished—although a release date hasn’t been set.

“It’s at an in-between stage, because I still want to put out a fourth record [in English] and also the Spanish record,” Gomez told the site. “So it’s just all timing. I have a few other songs to do and it will come out. I promise.”

Releasing a full-length Spanish-language album has been a lifelong dream for Gomez, who recorded a Spanish version of her hit single “Who Says.”

Following the release of the single “A Year Without Rain” in 2010 in English—as well as in Spanish, under the title “Un año sin lluvia”—the former Disney Channel star told the Associated Press that her “dream would be to have an entire album in Spanish” but that she believed it was best to begin by releasing individual singles in Spanish because “it would be good practice.”

Gomez went on to tell AP how she lost her Spanish when she began attending school, but that she is more than willing to learn it again to avoid a disconnect “with our audience.”

It was in 2007 after attending and witnessing other Latina actresses proudly representing their Hispanic roots at the National Council of La Raza’s, ALMA Awards ceremony that the star re-connected with her Mexican culture.
