Selena Gomez has been incredibly successful over the years, especially with her music career. But now, she's embracing her heritage, as she's working on her first-ever extended play in Spanish. Gomez is extremely excited about her upcoming album, Revelación, which will be released on March 12th.
"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," Gomez shared in an interview with Apple Music's Zane Lowe. "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 global just makes people feel things."
"It is something that needed to be precise, and needed to be respected by the audience I'm going to release this for," Selena continued. Earlier this month, Gomez released De Una Vez, a song that was entirely in Spanish, which will be a part of the upcoming album. "Of course, I want everyone to enjoy the music, but I am targeting my fanbase," said Gomez.
This isn't the only thing Selena's been up to so far in 2021; She recently announced that she's working on season two of her cooking show, Selena + Chef. "I am looking forward to challenging myself in the kitchen on the next season," Gomez shared. She also explained that her new culinary adventure helped her rediscover her passion for food while staying busy during quarantine, something we can all probably relate to.
It looks like Gomez has a lot to look forward to this year, from putting her culinary skills to the test and taking her music career to a whole new level. In regards to Revelación, "I'm targeting my heritage, and I couldn't be more excited," Selena shared. And we certainly can't wait to hear the album either!
