Another Selena Gomez album is officially in the works! The songstress took to Instagram Stories in May 2021 and teased that SG3 is coming.
In the social media snap, the “Lose You to Love Me” singer shared a photo of what appeared to be her wrist and on it was a pink and red beaded bracelet that read “SG3.” Upon seeing the image, Selena’s fanbase freaked out and flooded social media with news that a new album was in the works.
The former Disney Channel star’s next record will come as a follow-up to her January 2020 solo album Rare and March 2021 Spanish-Language EP, Revelación. Following her last two musical releases, the Wizards of Waverly Place actress got real about possibly quitting music in the future while chatting with Vogue in their April 2021 issue. “It’s hard to keep doing music when people don’t necessarily take you seriously,” Selena said at the time. “I’ve had moments where I’ve been like, ‘What’s the point? Why do I keep doing this?’”
She continued, “I think there are a lot of people who enjoy my music, and for that, I’m so thankful, for that I keep going, but I think the next time I do an album it’ll be different. I want to give it one last try before I maybe retire music.”
Selena also clarified her comment with “I need to be careful.” But despite any negativity she may have toward continuing her music career, Selena appears to be giving it another try.
Despite changing her mind about making music, Selena discussed continuing her singing career during an interview with Vogue Australia in June 2021.
“I think my life has been dominated by music,” she said. “And I don’t mind it whatsoever, I’m so grateful. I’ll always probably make music, even if it’s just for me, and that’s something I’ll cherish.”
During the same interview, Selena appeared to tease that new music may be on the way, saying that she was “going to the studio” after her interview with the publication.
Although it’s unclear exactly what fans can expect from Selena’s new music, she spoke candidly about stepping out of her comfort zone to create Revelación. “It is something that needed to be precise and needed to be respected by the audience I’m going to release this for,” the Monte Carlo actress also told Apple Music’s Zane Lowe. “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.”
Selena also has tons of other projects on the horizon, including the Hulu series Only Murders in the Building. But for now, it’s all music, all the time! Scroll through our gallery for everything we know about Selena’s upcoming album so far.
