SELENA GOMEZ RELEASES SPANISH-LANGUAGE SINGLES FOR THE FIRST TIME IN NEARLY A DECADE, EMBRACING HER LATIN HERITAGE AND RETURNING TO HER ROOTS.
Selena Gomez (@selenagomez) is unequivocally one of the hardest-working talents in the world. A superstar on the highest level, the 28-year-old has proven that there’s no arena she cannot excel in—from acting, directing, singing, producing and, most recently, even launching a beauty line, Rare Beauty, and a cooking TV show on HBO Max, Selena + Chef. Now, she’s continuing to push boundaries as she returns to her roots and embraces her Latin heritage, debuting two singles in anticipation of her first Spanish-language EP, Revelación—for the first time in nearly a decade. Gomez first dropped “De Una Vez,” which translates to “at once,” to much acclaim, teaming up with Grammy Award winner and powerhouse producer Tainy to bring the track to life with a powerful music video that explores the themes of personal healing, empowerment and love. “‘De Una Vez’ talks about healing a broken heart because I have experienced and understood what it feels like to go through something that was so painful and had to regain my strength. I think that is the beauty of the song,” notes Gomez on the inspiration behind “De Una Vez.” Next, she showcased her versatility as an artist and followed up by debuting the upbeat “Baila Conmigo,” with rising star Rauw Alejandro, also produced by Tainy. “With ‘Baila Conmigo,’ I want to get everyone dancing,” shares Gomez. “The video portrays the sense of isolation we are all experiencing right now, and music truly does connect us no matter where we are in the world.”
