Three Tracks from Gomez’s “For You” Album Leaked Online

Selena Gomez is facing a new dilemma

The 22-year-old half-Mexican American singer actress’ upcoming greatest hits album features a high-octane remix of her single “My Dilemma,” from her 2011 When The Sun Goes Down album.

Selena Gomez

My Dilemma 2.0,” is one of three songs from For You, an album of alternate takes, remixes and new tracks, that have been leaked online.

In addition to the “My Dilemma” remix, the new track “Do It” and a Boy Lightning remix of “Forget Forever” off of last year’s Stars Dance album have been leaked.

The tracks appeared on an uncertified Gomez-dedicated YouTube page Thursday and Friday.

Earlier this month, Gomez shared lead single “The Heart Wants What It Wants” with a dramatic, possibly Justin Bieber-inspired video.

The “My Dilemma 2.0” reworking brings the song up-to-date with contemporary EDM-inspired production, making for a dynamic single.

“Do It” is an uber poppy produced by Rock Mafia with a catchy, almost Rihanna-like chorus.

And Boy Lightning’s “Forget Forever” remix is entirely club-ready, full-bore EDM take on the song.

For You is due out on November 24.

Gomez’s New Album “Stars Dance” Headed to No. 1 on the Billboard Charts

Selena Gomez is soaring to the top of the Billboard charts…

The half-Mexican American singer/actress, who just celebrated her 21st birthday on July 22, is likely to earn her first No. 1 album next week.

Selena Gomez

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 to Release New Album Next March

If you’re tired of hittin’ repeat-peat-peat-peat-peat-peat on Selena Gomez’s last album When the Sun Goes Down, you’ll only have to wait a little longer for new music.

The 20-year-old half-Mexican American singer/actress, who has been focusing more in recent months on acting projects like Spring Breakers and Getaway will reportedly release her next studio album in March 2013.

Selena Gomez

Gomez was in Texas on Wednesday to help Ryan Seacrest open Seacrest Studios, an interactive media experience for kids at the Children’s Medical Center of Dallas. During the event, Seacrest posted via Twitter, “@selenagomez just told me new album in march fyi,” and linked to a photo of himself and the former Disney Channel star.

Though no other information has been released, the news hints at the end of Gomez’s musical hiatus, which started back in January 2012.

To date Gomez’s last album, When The Sun Goes Down, has sold 642,000 copies since its June 2011 release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The album — her third with her band Selena Gomez & The Scene — spawned her biggest airplay hit ever, “Love You Like a Love Song,” which reached No. 15 on the Billboard Radio Songs chart and her first top 10 on the Pop Songs tally.

Since the album’s release, Gomez has turned her attention to acting, lending her voice to Hotel Transylvania and returning to her Disney roots for a Wizards of Waverly Place special. She also launched a self-titled fragrance last spring.

It’s no wonder Gomez was recently named Glamour magazine’s 2012 Woman of the Year for her burgeoning career and her continued philanthropic work with UNICEF.

Lovato: The Top-Ranking Latweeno on’s 21 Under 21 is back with its list of this year’s hottest minors in music, with five Latweeno artists/groups making the cut… And Demi Lovato isn’t only the highest ranking Hispanic artist, she’s also the top-ranking female…

The 20-year-old part Mexican singer/actress, who ranked at No. 7 last year, moved up four spots on’s latest 21 Under 21 installment, which ranks the most powerful minors in music.

Here’s a look at the Latweenos making the grade this year:

No. 3: Demi Lovato
Following the personal problems that threatened to derail her career two years ago, Lovato has come back Unbroken, which happens to be name of the album she released last year. It’s an album that’s still garnering attention. The album’s first track Skyscraper” recently picked up an MTV Video Music Award, while follow up single “Give Your Heart a Break” has resulted in Lovato’s first-ever No. 1 on the Billboard charts.

But that’s not all… Lovato scored a high-profile primetime television gig by joining Fox’s The X Factor, where she’s currently judging other aspiring artists alongside Simon Cowell and Britney Spears.

Throw in a popular summer tour with Hot Chelle Rae and hosting gigs at the Teen Choice Awards and MTV’s live New Year’s Eve Special, and 2012 is proving to be the year the former Disney Channel star is reaching new heights in her already impressive career.

Scotty McCreery

No. 4: Scotty McCreery
Scotty McCreery is holding steady on the 21 Under 21 list, coming in at No. 4 once again. That’s probably because the 18-year-old part-Puerto Rican country singer’s career has been going full steam ahead since he won American Idol in 2011. McCreery, who graduated from high school this year, saw his debut album Clear as Day reach No. 1 on the Billboard charts.

Even though he hasn’t placed a single in the top 10 on the country charts, McCreery has developed a very loyal fan base at a young age. Clear as Day helped him claim prizes from the American Country Awards, the Academy of Country Music Awards and the CMT Music Awards.

McCreery even toured with Brad Paisley and performed on the CW’s Hart of Dixie.

McCreery is following up his debut album, which was certified platinum, with a holiday set, Christmas with Scotty McCreery, will hit stores on October 16.

No. 6: Selena Gomez
She may have dropped three spots on the 21 Under 21 list, to No. 6, but Selena Gomez has not fallen off the radar. In the last year, she’s released another hugely popular album (When the Sun Goes Down), which spawned the hit singles “Who Says” and “Love You Like a Love Song,” which earned Gomez her first-ever MTV Video Music Award nod. And the 20-year-old half-Mexican American singer/actress performed the album’s third single, Hit The Lights, on Dancing with the Stars.

And Gomez has broadened her appeal while taking a break from recording music. This spring, she launched a brand new fragrance and focused on her film career. Her voice will be heard in the animated film Hotel Transylvania, and she’s set to appear in two films that could help shatter her Disney image: Spring Breakers with James Franco and the crime drama Getaway.

And she’s currently dating the No. 1 on the 21 Under 21 list, Justin Bieber, which has resulted in countless tabloid placements. Selena Gomez and the Scene will hopefully be back soon, but in the meantime, she continues to leave her indelible imprint on pop culture.


No. 17: 3BallMTY
3BallMTY may not be huge in the United States, but they could be very soon. The Mexican DJ collective, comprised of 19-year-old Erick Rincón, 19-year-old Alberto Presenda (DJ Otto) and 20-year-old Sergio Zavala (DJ Sheeqo Beat), have managed to turn their hobby into a huge business that’s reached a global audience thanks to their signature “tribal guarachero” sound. They’ve achieved success via radio airplay and synch deals with brands like Pepsi. And they recently dominated the list of finalists for the upcoming Billboard Mexican Music Awards. Despite their newfound fame, 3BallMTY has kept a cool and down-to-earth attitude about the group’s ascent in the music business. This past summer they opened up for Justin Bieber in a special concert at the famous Zócalo, the main square in the heart of historic Mexico City in front of about 200,000 music fans. “It was a bit nerve-wrecking,” says Rincón, “but once we were out on stage it was an amazing experience that we will never forget.”

Victoria Justice

No. 21: Victoria Justice
Victoria Justice has taken a tumble on the 21 Under 21 list, dropping from No. 10 to No. 21. But that has nothing to do with the 19-year-old half-Puerto Rican singer/actress’ talent. The star of had a relatively quiet recording year. She’s the breakout star of the Nickelodeon hit show, even while co-stars like Ariana Grande are seeing their stock rise. The release of the show’s latest soundtrack, Victorious 2.0, coincided with the release of Justice’s recent solo single, “Make It In America,” and in August Justice embarked on her first solo tour in support of the pop tune.

With Victorious ending it’s run on cable, Justice will be setting her sights elsewhere. She has a new film Fun Size coming out this October; and she plans to release a solo album shortly after that.

Gomez’s “Hit the Lights” Video Released!

It’s time to “Hit the Lights” and dance the night (and day) away…

Selena Gomez’s highly anticipated video for the thumping-hot single is officially online.


Released on Wednesday, the “Hit the Lights” video portrays the 19-year-old part-Mexican singer/actress as a real free spirit with a keen fashion sense. After all, it wouldn’t be a video without Gomez changing into several oh-so-haute outfits and accessories.

The video features Gomez frolicking in cornfields, riding in the back of a pick-up truck and dancing up a storm at a late-night rave.

The message of the video: have fun, live your life and throw caution to the wind!

“The song ‘Hit the Lights’ is that missed opportunity. The dreams that you wish you would go for and basically the song is just encouraging people to [let] loose and have fun and be young and crazy,” the Wizards of Waverly Place star explained. “This video is more organic than anything I’ve done before. It’s about being with people you love and enjoying the moment and embracing the moment you’re in your life.”

“Hit the Lights” is the latest single released from Gomez’s album, “When the Sun Goes Down.”

Gomez Preparing to “Hit the Lights”…

Selena Gomez is a real tease, at least when it comes to sharing her latest music video with the world…

The 19-year-old half-Mexican singer/ actress has released a third clip to promote the release of her video for “Hits the Lights,” the third single from  Selena Gomez & the Scene’s latest album “When the Sun Goes Down.”

Selena Gomez

There’s no doubt Gomez has succeeded  in building some serious buzz and excitement for the club-thumper that Gomez says is about living in the moment.

“Basically this song is just encouraging people to let loose, have fun, and be young and crazy,” says the former Wizards of Waverly star.

Shot in California, the oh-so-happy video features a vivacious Gomez with her bandmates and a slew of extras in various scenes, including a corn field, a discofied wooded-area and a baseball field.

Dressed in a sparkly purple-sequined shorts-jumper and knee-high lack boots, Gomez performed the party-thumper live at this year’s MTV Europe Music Awards—where she also served as the show host.

“Hit the Lights” will premiere on VEVO on Wednesday, November 16.
