Exposing a shocking revelation about her music aspirations, the 28-year-old, who’s already won three Billboard 200 #1 albums, 18 Teen Choice Awards (making her the fifth-most awarded artist), 24.3 million songs sold as of 2017, and 215 million Instagram followers, is contemplating an exit from music.
“It’s hard to keep doing music when people don’t necessarily take you seriously,” Gomez said during her cover story interview. “I’ve had moments where I’ve been like, ‘What’s the point? Why do I keep doing this?’ ‘Lose You to Love Me’ I felt was the best song I’ve ever released, and for some people it still wasn’t enough. I think there are a lot of people who enjoy my music, and for that I’m so thankful, for that I keep going, but I think the next time I do an album it’ll be different. I want to give it one last try before I maybe retire music.”
That “last try” may reference her upcoming all-Spanish album scheduled for March 12th. In addition to her previously released singles “Baila Conmigo” (“Dance With Me”) featuring Puerto Rican rapper/singer Rauw Alejandro and “De Una Vez” (“At Once”), Selena’s first-ever all Spanish collection, titled Revelación, will also include DJ Snake on “Selfish Love”, Puerto Rican rapper/singer Myke Towers on “Dámelo To” (“Give it To Me”), as well as “Buscando Amor” (“Searching For Love”), “Vicio” (“Vice”) and “Adios” (“Goodbye”).
