Selena Gomez on Embracing Positivity, New Music, and a Surprising Mishap
Selena Gomez, the pop sensation behind chart-topping hits, is back with fresh music and a fresh perspective. But not everything is about her vibrant new tracks; she’s recently found herself sporting an unexpected accessory.
Tripping Over Summer Vibes
The “Single Soon” artist, in a candid chat with the Ellen K Morning Show, unveiled the backstory of her new arm cast, a consequence of a recent mishap. The Grammy-nominated songstress humorously shared, “I wish I had, like, a really cool story that I saved someone’s life or something. I was in a long dress — it was a summer dress — and I was walking from my car to my house and tripped.”
As she displayed her arm cast, Gomez remarked, “I guess there is a silver lining, but this is not fun.”
A Return to the Charts
Not even an unfortunate stumble could dampen the excitement around her new single “Single Soon”. Produced by the dynamic duo, benny blanco and Cashmere Cat, this anthemic pop hit is about the exhilarating prelude to a breakup. The lyrics go, “I’m picking out this dress/ Trying on these shoes/ ‘Cause I’ll be single soon/ I’ll be single soon”.
Dropping this upbeat tune isn’t the only thing keeping Gomez occupied. She took to Instagram, addressing a comment about the prospects of her song making it to the Billboard Hot 100 chart, expressing, “I don’t care about selling anything. I’m just happy to make music with my friends.”
Finding Happiness in Solitude
In an intimate discussion on SiriusXM Hits 1 LA with hosts Tony Fly and Symon, Selena delved deep into her current mindset. The pop icon highlighted her journey of self-contentment, asserting, “I just want to be happy with who I am so that whenever that person comes into my life, I can just have them add on to me instead of being this insecure, you know, person that I normally used to be.”
Elaborating on the inspiration behind “Single Soon”, she explained its essence: an affirmation that being solo can be an exhilarating experience.
The Upcoming Album: A Beacon of Positivity
“Single Soon” is merely a precursor to her upcoming fourth solo studio album, which promises to be an ode to positivity. Sharing her creative approach, Gomez revealed, “There’s not one sad song on my album — and I don’t mean that in a way, like, everything is not full of meaning because I think even the most poppy songs can have heart.”
She’s no stranger to crafting emotionally charged tracks, often dubbed “Sad Girl music.” However, with her latest album, Gomez has chosen a different route. She affirmed, “I just felt like this album shouldn’t be that.”
With this fresh perspective on life and music, fans worldwide await, with bated breath, to be serenaded by Selena’s revitalized musical charm.
