Get ready, you guys, because Selena Gomez just announced that she has a brand new album in the works, and it’s going to be all in Spanish! Yep, just one year after she released Rare, the singer is gearing up to drop another LP, and we’ve got all the exciting details for you. So when will it come out, you ask? What will it sound like? Will there be any collaborations on it? And what else has the superstar revealed about it so far? Not to worry, people, because we went ahead and rounded up everything you need to know about Gomez’s upcoming Spanish album, including the release date, track list and more.
What Do We Know So Far About Selena Gomez’s Upcoming Spanish Album?While speaking to Zane Lowe earlier this month, the “Come and Get It” songstress confirmed that she had a Spanish album in the works.
“This has been something I’ve wanted to do for 10 years, working on a Spanish project, because I’m so, so proud of my heritage, and just genuinely felt like I wanted this to happen,” she explained. “And it happened, and I feel like it’s the perfect timing. Just with all the division in the world, there’s something about Latin music that globally just makes people feel things, you know?” And according to Gomez, it wasn’t easy making Latin-styled music. “It is something that needed to be precise, and needed to be respected by the audience I’m going to release this for,” the Wizards of Waverly Place alum continued. ” Of course, I want everyone to enjoy the music, but I am targeting my fan base. I’m targeting my heritage, and I couldn’t be more excited.”
When Will The Album Come Out?So when will it come out, you ask? Well, unfortunately, there’s no release date for it just yet, but Gomez did share the album artwork to her Instagram on January 26, 2021, which she captioned, “Próximamente,” which translates to, “Soon.”
For those who missed it, she’s actually already released the first single from the album — “De Una Vez” — which came out on January 15, 2021, and is a total bop, TBH. The second single, “Baila Conmigo,” is dropping on January 29, 2021, and features Rauw Alejandro and Tainy.View this post on Instagram

Will There Be Any Collaborations On The Album?So Gomez hasn’t shared the track list just yet, but many people are convinced that there’s going to be a song with Zayn Malik on the album. Why? Well, first, they noticed that he included a bunch of her songs on his recent “Pop and Play” Spotify playlist. Some eagle-eyed fans also caught him listening to her music during an Instagram Live earlier this month. Oh, and to make things even more suspicious, he also changed his YouTube bio to, “Pathetically aesthetic,” with an orange emoji, and fans were quick to point out that Gomez’s upcoming album cover has oranges on it! Coincidence?! We hope not.

What Else Has Selena Gomez Been Up To Lately?A new album isn’t the only thing Gomez’s fans have to look forward to. Yep, back in November 2020, news hit the web that the former Disney star had been cast in a brand new movie, called In the Shadow of the Mountain, and everyone was pretty excited about it. According to The Hollywood Reporter, In the Shadow of the Mountain is going tell the story of Silvia Vásquez-Lavado. For those who don’t know, the mountaineer was the first Peruvian woman to summit Mount Everest and the first openly gay woman to complete the Seven Summits — a challenge to climb the highest mountain on each continent. She was also a victim of childhood assault and neglect, and has helped organize many treks to Mt. Everest’s base camp for other women who have endured abuse. Gomez is set to play Vásquez-Lavado in the upcoming flick, and it’s reportedly going to come out in winter 2022. That’s not all. During quarantine, the actress has definitely not slowed down. She released her very own makeup line (called Rare Beauty) and starred in her own HBO cooking show called Selena + Chef — which recently got renewed for its second season! Oh, and did we mention that the brunette beauty is also set to return as Mavis in the upcoming fourth addition to the Hotel Transylvania series?! Woo-hoo!
Is Selena Gomez Dating Anyone At The Moment?Gomez is reportedly dating Basketball star Jimmy Butler at the moment, and we are so here for this rumored new pairing. According to Miami Herald, the 28-year-old and the Miami Heat player were spotted grabbing an intimate dinner in December 2020. A source told E! News, however, that the pair has hung out “a few times,” but that Gomez is keeping her options open.” “[She] has been on a few dates with Jimmy and thinks he’s a great guy. They hung out a few times while Selena was in New York City. Jimmy asked her to go to dinner and they had a great time,” the insider explained. “It’s very casual and she’s open to seeing where things go, but isn’t settling down just yet.” They added that Gomez “is currently single but has recently been more open to dating.” Well, we can’t wait to see where this goes!
What Other Albums Do We Have To Look Forward To?There’s actually a lot of new music coming in 2021! Just take Demi Lovato, for example. After months of anticipation, she confirmed that she’s going to release her new music sometime this year, and we are freaking out about it. “The tea is … I am releasing an album and a documentary next year,” she said during an appearance on the “(Re)Session” podcast in December 2020. “I’ve been working on this album since 2018 and my life has taken so many twists and turns since then, and it’s changed the direction, the sound, the story … I’m really excited to release all of this new music.” Plus, Justin Bieber is already working on his next LP! He told his fans during an Instagram Live, “I’m going to make another [album] while I’m in quarantine. There’s nothing else to do. I will.” Then, in January 2021, he revealed via Instagram that he was “going over track listing for the album.”
Billie Eilish, Camila Cabello, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Harry Styles, the Jonas Brothers and so many more artists are also expected to drop new music this year, so brace yourselves.View this post on Instagram
