The 28-year-old Mexican American singer/actress has officially announced plans to release her first-ever Spanish-language EP is set on March 12.

Titled Revelación, the album will follow Gomez’s singles “De Una Vez,” which arrived on January 16, and the Rauw Alejandro-assisted “Baila Conmigo,” which will be released on Friday, January 29.

“Revelación, my first ever Spanish EP, is out March 12,” the singer tweeted to her over 60 million followers. “Preorder it tomorrow at 9am PT.”

News of the EP comes a day after Gomez announced the Tainy-produced “Baila Conmigo.” She shared a photo on social media that shows Selena rocking her shoulder-length hair, a fitted dress with a red-orange spotlight.

Earlier this month, the multi-hyphenate dropped “De Una Vez,” her first Spanish single in a decade, produced by Tainy, Albert Hype, Jota Rosa, and Neon16. In the song, Gomez opens up about healing from a previous relationship and discovering her self-worth.

The rhythmic pop tune scored Gomez her second top five on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart as “De Una Vez” debuts at No. 4 on the January 30 survey, which arrives two years since her first No. 1: DJ Snake’s bilingual “Taki Taki,” which also features Ozuna and Cardi B.

Karol G Makes History as “Tusa” Debuts at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs Chart

Karol Gis racing to the top in historic fashion…

The 28-year-old Colombian reggaeton singer and songwriter’s collaboration with Nicki Minaj, “Tusa,”debuts at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart dated November 23. 

Karol G, Tusa, Nicki Minaj

The chart ranks the most popular Latin songs of the week, blending airplay, streaming and digital sales data.

“Tusa” becomes the first song to debut at No. 1 in 2019, and the first song by a female act in a lead role to bow at No. 1 since 2016, when Shakira’s “Chantaje,” featuring Maluma, bowed atop the list. It’s also the first title by two women in a lead role to open atop the chart since its inception in 1986.

“One of my biggest personal challenges was exceeding my expectations and those of my fans, following the release of Ocean,” Karol G tells Billboard. “I couldn’t be happier today seeing that “Tusa” debuts at No. 1 in the U.S. after only one week of its release. I’m especially grateful to Nicki Minaj, to my team for keeping the dream alive, and for continuing in this journey — and to my fans who make all of this a reality.”

In addition to Shakira, Karol G and Minaj, only two other songs with women on a lead role have debuted at No. 1 on Hot Latin Songs: Rocio Durcalwith “La Guirnalda” in September of 1986 and Gloria Estefanwith “Hotel Nacional” in January of 2012. 

Meanwhile, two other titles with female acts in featuredroles have bowed atop the tally: “Mi Verdad” by Mana featuring Shakira (February 2015) and “Taki Taki” by DJ Snake, featuring Selena GomezOzuna and Cardi B(October 2018).

“Tusa” gives Karol G her third No. 1 on Hot Latin Songs. Her first leader arrived over a year ago through another collaboration: Pitbull’s “Dame Tu Cosita,” with El Chombo, featuring Cutty Ranks(May 2018).

“Tusa,” Colombian slang for heartbreak, was released on November 7 in conjunction with the song’s music video and was produced by Ovy on the Drumsand written by him, Karol G, Minaj and Keytin. It soars to No. 1 on Hot Latin Songs mainly on the strength of streaming activity and digital sales.

The song logged 9.5 million U.S. streams in its first week (ending November 14), according to Nielsen Music and bows at No. 1 on the Latin Streaming Song chart. It’s just the second song to debut at No. 1 on the list in 2019, following “China,” the former nine-week ruler, where Karol G also takes a lead role alongside Anuel AADaddy YankeeOzuna and J Balvin.

“Tusa” concurrently starts at No. 78 on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100chart, becoming Karol G’s fourth chart entry.

The song was presented for the first time during the 2019 Latin Grammyweek, as part of a Google Pixel 4motion sense experiment alongside DJ Feloat The Palms, on November 14.

J Balvin Earns 17th No. 1 on Billboard Latin Airplay Chart with “Loco Contigo”

Make that 17 for J Balvin

The 34-year-old Colombian reggaeton singer and rapper’s collaboration with DJ Snakeand Tyga, “Loco Contigo,”rises 2-1 on the BillboardLatin Airplaychart dated November 2. 

J Balvin

With the move, J Balvin goes into a four-way tie with Daddy YankeeRicky Martinand Romeo Santosfor the second-most No. 1s in the chart’s history , all with 17 (Enrique Iglesiascontinues at the helm with 30).

“Loco Contigo” arrives at the summit almost a year after DJ Snake claimed his first leader on the tally with “Taki Taki” (on the December 8, 2018-dated chart). Meanwhile, it marks the first No. 1 for American rapper Tygaon any BillboardLatin chart.  

The Spanglish track released via DJ Snake/Geffen/Interscopeon June 14, lands in the penthouse in its 14th week on the chart with 12.7 million in audience impressions (up 1%) earned in the week ending October 27, according to Nielsen Music.

Written by J Balvin, Tyga, Justin Quilesand DJ Snake, “Loco Contigo” is the sixth single off DJ Snake’s Carte Blanchealbum, which debuted at No. 2 on the Top Dance/Electronic Album Saleschart (August 10-dated list).As “Loco Contigo”  arrives at the pinnacle of Latin Airplay, it makes progress on other Latin rankings. The song climbs an equal 2-1 on both the Latin Pop Airplayand Latin Rhythm Airplaycharts.vaScript
