With her musical collaboration with Camila Cabello on the way, Selena Gomez has confirmed that more music is coming, a whole album.
During an interview for her new Hulu show Only Murders in the Building, the singer said she is “very excited” about working on new music.
“I’m starting to work on a new album right now so I’m really excited and have so much to say,” Gomez said. “I’m very lucky … because I love doing what I do and I wouldn’t be able to do it if it weren’t for amazing people … and those who are fans. So, I’m very happy to be a part of all of the things I can do,” she said in part of the interview.
The speculation has been active since back in May, all because of one Instagram story Gomez had posted.
She had posted a photo of her wrist, wearing a beaded bracelet that reads “SG 3″ with the caption,”#SG3.” Fans were quick to take it to be a not-so-subtle album teaser. It was not very long before “SG3 is coming” was trending on Twitter.
However, there is a chance that this is her last rendezvous with music before she retires.
“It’s hard to keep doing music when people don’t necessarily take you seriously,” she said in her March 2021 cover interview with Vogue. “I’ve had moments where I’ve been like, ‘What’s the point? Why do I keep doing this?'”
“I’m not saying I want a Grammy,” she had additionally said in an interview with Elle. “I just feel like I’m doing the best I can, and it’s all about me. Sometimes, that can really get to me.”
Selena Gomez has also been open, of late, about how the nature of her stardom, including her being a child artist and always finding herself under a spotlight, has affected her.
Her music video for the song 999 with Camila Cabello is out now.
