Along with launching her HBO Max cooking show, Gomez spent her quarantine finalizing the rest of her Spanish-language album in her home studio. Uplifting and evocative, Revelación reinforces Gomez’s tenacity for creating dynamic pop songs.

Building on the critical success of her 2020 album Rare, Gomez utilizes the same themes of self-love and confidence while exploring new musical territory with the quietly confident R&B and reggaeton tracks that Revelación is comprised of.

Discussing the EP, Gomez said “This new music is a labor of love for all of my Latin fans. Whether you speak Spanish or not I hope you can feel the emotion and passion. For me, that is the beauty of Latin music.”

To create this latest body of work, Gomez collaborated with those musicians whom she respects and admires, such as DJ Snake, Rauw Alejandro, and Myke Towers who feature on the tracks “Selfish Love,” “Baila Conmigo,” and “Damelo To’,” respectively. The album was also executive produced by Latin music veterans Tainy (Bad Bunny and J Balvin) and NEON16.

When it came time to develop the visual concept of Revelación, Gomez recruited Los Pérez (Tania Verduzco and Adrián Pérez) and Fernando Nogari to direct the first two music videos, who were influenced by Gomez’s Mexican heritage. For their most recent single “Selfish Love,” Selena and DJ Snake chose award-winning filmmaker Rodrigo Saavedra for the hit video.

As the first single off Revelación and recorded entirely over Zoom, “De Una Fez” was met with widespread acclaim and notched Gomez her second Top 5 single on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart, following her hit collab with DJ Snake “Taki Taki.”

Revelación is out now and can be bought here. View the full tracklisting below.
