After nearly 1 year of absence, Selena Gomez has just made a new move that is said to return to the music path, which surprised fans because the singer previously shared that she wants to retire to … motherhood.
Selena Gomez suddenly posted information about her new song titled Single Soon on her personal website. Accordingly, the song will be released on August 25.
“You’ve been asking me about new music for a long time. Since I haven’t finished the album yet, I wanted to release a fun song that I wrote a long time ago. This is the perfect song to end a summer,” the singer shared on her personal website.
Shortly after this announcement, Selena Gomez’s representative also posted an official statement, saying that this is the former Disney star’s gift to fans who have been “patiently waiting for new music”.
According to the post, the single “Soon” is a song produced by Benny Blanco and Cashmere Cat, following in the footsteps of Rema’s hit “Calm Down”. The song is expected to “storm” in the near future as Selena Gomez has been absent from the music market for nearly a year.
In February, Selena also revealed that her new album will feature upbeat and honest tunes.
“The music I’m making is the most real thing I’ve ever experienced,” the 1992-born star shared, “It’s strong and pop with themes of freedom from relationships, freedom from darkness. If I were chosen, I would probably write ballads all my life. However, I want to produce music that makes people laugh.”
During the singer’s “hiding” time, many fans couldn’t help but worry that Selena might “retire from the aura” to choose a more normal life. Under her posts, somewhere you can still see comments questioning the Disney princess’s “comeback” time.
In an interview, the former Disney star made headlines when he affirmed that he will continue his musical path.
“I think I’ll never give up on music. I’m not saying I want a Grammy, I just think I’m doing my best,” she said, adding, “Music is not the same as being an actress. The music became quite personal to me. I put myself into music.”
Earlier, just after celebrating her 30th birthday, singer and actress Selena Gomez unexpectedly revealed her future retirement plans while guesting at Giving Back Generation, showing that she is ready to wave goodbye to Hollywood glory.
“I hope I get married and become a mother soon,” the singer shared. “Eventually, I’ll get tired of all this, so I’ll probably spend most of my life in philanthropy before retiring.”
Selena also revealed that the adorability of her 8-year-old half-sister Gracie Teefey made the actress quickly want to have children: “Basically, I watched this whole process of this little person growing into a girl. There couldn’t be a better feeling than that in this world. I feel like a parent in a way, even though I’m not a mom yet. It’s interesting to just see how simple life is at a time. I want to enjoy life the way my sister enjoys her life.”
Meanwhile, sources say Selena Gomez is in talks to produce a remake of the classic 1980s film Working Girl. The critically acclaimed blockbuster tells the story of Tess McGill (played by Melanie Griffith), a female secretary whose boss steals her idea, and then resolves to get her “brainchild” back in a way no one expected.
The fact that the beautiful singer suddenly announced that she is thinking about retiring made the public quite surprised, especially when Selena Gomez has just been caught dating Italian director Andrea Iervolino.
The public thinks that after a series of love affairs that have gone nowhere, the beauty has now thought of “stopping” with 1 cult wedding with a new boyfriend. But Selena Gomez’s above post is the answer that soothed the hearts of many of her fans.
