Selena Gomez Is Changing Sound for New Album
For such a young artist, Selena Gomez has reinvented herself a few times already. When Selena Gomez & the Scene released their first album, Kiss & Tell, back in 2009, the sound was a little more amateur and along the lines of what you would expect from a Disney star. Still, it did well enough to warrant more music.
Just a year later, A Year Without Rain was released and by selling a little over 66,000 copies, it debuted on the US Billboard 200 in the #4 spot which was just enough to edge out Kiss & Tell. Singles included the title track as well as “Round & Round.”
Ever prolific, she released When the Sun Goes Down the following year and the lead single “Who Says” was so well-received after premiering on On Air with Ryan Seacrest that it was certified platinum. The other single, “Love You Like a Love Song” also performed well and Gomez’s band went on to win the Choice Group, Choice Single for "Who Says" and Choice Love Song for "Love You Like a Love Song" at the 2011 Teen Choice Awards. This album definitely featured more mature lyrics but, after a crazy year during she was dating Justin Bieber, it’s no wonder that she’s shaking things up yet again.
As she prepares to release her fourth album, she explains that this effort will have a different sound. While it will still have a pop feel, there will be songs that incorporate the Spanish language. Her plan is to go bigger and better and she feels that she really has stepped out of her comfort zone since even her close friends have said: “This does not even sound like you. This is way different than anything we have heard.”
I’m sure fans are really hoping that her album will feature a collaboration with Bieber.
