Selena Gomez Announces Spanish-Language EP ‘Revelación’
Marc Gordon - January 30, 2021

Selena Gomez has officially announced that her first-ever Spanish-language EP is set to drop on March 12! The album is titled Revelación (Revelation), the album will follow Gomez’s singles “De Una Vez,” which arrived January 16, and the Rauw Alejandro-assisted “Baila Conmigo,” which will be released on Friday, Jan. 29. “Revelación, my first ever Spanish EP, is out March 12,” the singer tweeted today (Jan. 27) to her over 60 million followers. “Preorder it tomorrow at 9am PT.”

 

Earlier this month, Selena Gomez dropped “De Una Vez,” her first Spanish single in a decade, produced by Tainy, Albert Hype, Jota Rosa, and Neon16. In the song, Gomez opens up about healing from a previous relationship and discovering her self-worth. The song scored Gomez her second top five on the Hot Latin Songs chart as “De Una Vez” debuts at No. 4, which arrives two years since her first No. 1: DJ Snake’s bilingual “Taki Taki.”

 

 

Gomez spoke to Zane Lowe on Apple Music about why she decided to sing in Spanish now. “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 said. “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?”

 

“You know what’s funny, is I actually think I sing better in Spanish,” she continued. “That was something I discovered. It was a lot of work, and look, you cannot mispronounce anything. It is something that needed to be precise, and needed to be respected by the audience I’m going to release this for. 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.”
