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

Scatter Seeds Of Kindness



If you have a friend worth loving
Love him. Yes, and let him know
That you love him, ere life's evening
Tinge his brow with sunset glow
Why should good words ne'er be said
Of a friend till he is dead?

If you hear a song that thrills you
Sung by any child of song
Praise it. Do not let the singer
Wait deserved praises long
Why should one who thrills your heart
Lack the joy you may impart?

If you hear a prayer that moves you
By its humble, pleading tone
Join it. Do not let the seeker
Bow before his God alone
Why should not thy brother share
The strength of ‘two or three' in prayer?

If your work is made more easy
By a friendly, helping hand
Say so. Speak out brave and truly
Ere the darkness veil the land
Should a brother workman dear
Falter for a word of cheer?

Scatter thus your seeds of kindness
All enriching as you go
Leave them. Trust the Harvest-Giver
He will make each seed to grow
So, until the happy end
Your life shall never lack a friend

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.”
