Selena Gomez Teases New Music

Selena Gomez is back in the studio…

This week, the 29-year-old Mexican American singer/actress shared a clip of herself inside the vocal booth on TikTok, simply captioned “New.”

Selena GomezThe catch? The TikTok comes virtually without any sound, so Selenators aren’t able to get an audible sneak peek of what Gomez is cooking up.

Whatever music she’s making, though, will be a follow-up to her 2021 Spanish-language EP Revelación, which peaked at No. 22 on the Billboard 200 and earned Gomez her first-ever Grammy nomination, for best Latin Pop Album, at the 64th annual Grammy Awards in April.

Gomez’s most recent full-length studio effort, meanwhile, was 2020’s Rare, which contained No. 1 hit “Lose You to Love Me,” as well as follow-up singles “Look At Her Now,” “Rare” and “Boyfriend.”

Gomez’s behind-the-scenes TikTok isn’t the first time she’s teased new music in the last few weeks, either.

During a celebration event for her cosmetics brand Rare Beauty, she hinted at the prospect during a rapid-fire Q&A session with TikTok makeup artist Mikayla Nogueira.

Of course, the onetime Disney Channel starlet has had plenty of other commitments on her plate in between albums: Season 2 of her hit series Only Murders in the Building just premiered on Hulu and she also took time off to attend the star-studded wedding of Britney Spears and Sam Asghari, where she even jumped on the mic with Paris Hilton to perform an impromptu rendition of “Stars Are Blind” for the bride.

At the same ceremony, Bad Bunny will receive the Vision Award, and actress Jessica Alba will receive the Business Award for her entrepreneurial and philanthropic activities.

Because of COVID-19 restrictions, there won’t be a live ceremony. The PBS special will feature filmed performances from across the U.S. and Latin America.

The awards were created by the White House in 1987 and commemorate the establishment of Hispanic Heritage Month in the U.S.

Jose Antonio Tijerino, president and CEO of the Hispanic Heritage Foundation, said in a statement that he is “thrilled to recognize Selena Gomez with the Arts Award for her impact on American and global culture through her music [and] movies but also for her courage as an advocate for mental health.”

In April of this year, Gomez revealed that she has bipolar disorder. She has discussed her condition in several interviews.

In his statement, Tijerino praised Gomez’s courage in opening up about her mental health challenges.

“There’s power in vulnerability and Selena has made it okay to talk about difficult issues we all deal with, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. Selena is a role model for so many for so many reasons.”

Gomez has been a pop star for more than a decade, first as the leader of Selena Gomez & the Scene, and since 2013 as a solo artist. All three of her solo studio albums, Stars Dance, Revival and Rare, have reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

In November 2019, Lose You to Love Me” became her first No. 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100.

The unscripted quarantine cooking show features the “Lose You To Love Me” singer preparing a wide variety of dishes, while a slew of expert chefs virtually guide her through each and every step. 

Selena + Chef, which premiered on HBO Max earlier in August, featured Gomez teaming up with culinary masters including Antonia Lofaso, Ludo Lefebvre, Roy Choi and Tanya Holland. In each episode, guest chefs highlight a charity of their choosing.

Season two of Selena + Chef not only brings the show a new set of recipes ranging in difficulty, but also a new slate of culinary experts and charities to be highlighted.

During HBO’s leg of the virtual CTAM tour, Gomez and Selena + Chef producer Aaron Saidman revealed that the first season of 10-episode series was filmed remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The filming process entailed crew rigging cameras inside Gomez’s kitchen and living room and controlling the machines from outside.

Gomez, who just released her highly anticipated collaboration with Blackpink, “Ice Cream,” shared that participating in the show and rediscovering a passion for food and cooking has helped her get out of her quarantine rut.

“[The show] was an opportunity to make something that could make people smile,” she said at CTAM.

Selena + Chef  is executive produced by Gomez via her July Moon Productions.

Selena Gomez’s “Rare” Aiming for No. 1 Debut on Billboard 200 Chart

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. 

Selena Gomez

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).

Selena Gomez Releases New Album “Rare”

Selena Gomezis back… And, she’s in rareform…

The 27-year-old Mexican American singer/actress has released her highly anticipated third solo album, Rare

Selena Gomez,

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.”

It marks her first project since 2015’s Revival
