ABOUT ARIANA GRANDE With her powerful vocals and astonishing range, Ariana Grande has emerged as one of the most magnetic and massively successful performers in pop music today. At age 24 she’s delivered three platinum-selling albums and surpassed 18 billion streams, in addition to nabbing four Grammy Award nominations and landing eight hits in the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. With 2016’s critically acclaimed Dangerous Woman, Grande both boldly defies expectation and reveals the full force of her voice (recently hailed as an “extraordinary, versatile, limitless instrument” upon Grande’s appearance on Time’s “100 Most Influential People” list).

Since making her full-length debut with 2013’s Yours Truly (featuring the game-changing, triple-platinum smash “The Way”), Grande has brought her striking vocal presence to a genre-blurring breed of pop, taking on R&B, soul, and electronic music with equal nuance and assurance. Arriving in 2014, her sophomore effort, My Everything, garnered a Grammy Award nomination for Best Pop Vocal Album and spawned the 6x-platinum hits “Problem” and “Bang Bang” (a Grammy nominee for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance). Grande embraced a more uncompromising vision than ever before in the making of Dangerous Woman. With People noting that the album “celebrates feminine might,” Entertainment Weekly praised Grande for “having something meaningful to say with that jaw-dropping voice — one of the most exquisite in pop today.” Grande wrapped up her widely lauded Dangerous Woman Tour in support of the album last year, performing 85 arena shows worldwide.

Through the years, the longtime actress and former Broadway star has proven the scope of her talent by appearing on Scream Queens and Hairspray Live! and showcased her comedic chops by hosting Saturday Night Live. With her social media following now surging past 200 million, Grande has also earned numerous accolades from the MTV Video Music Awards, iHeartRadio Music Awards, and American Music Awards (including the highly coveted Artist of the Year prize).

Ariana’s recent single “No Tears Left To Cry” debuted at #1 on iTunes in 88 countries worldwide and began the next era for her upcoming fourth full length studio album Sweetener. With the release of “Not Tears Left To Cry” she became the first artist in music history to see the lead single from her first four albums debut on the Top 10 on Billboard Hot 100. This year she has graced the prestigious magazine covers of TIME’s Next Generation Leaders, FADER, and British Vogue. The highly anticipated album, Sweetener, will be released August 2018.

Selena Gomez Releases Highly Anticipated Spanish Language EP “Revelación”

Published

on

12 MARCH 2021 (TORONTO, ON) – Receiving unanimous acclaim for her long awaited return to Latin music, Selena Gomez released her first Spanish-Language EP, REVELACIÓN via via Interscope Records/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. Gomez envisioned creating a project that would be a reflection of her journey, allowing her to share her story through the connection to her Latina Heritage. About the EP, Selena expresses, “This new music is a labor of love for all of my Latin fans. Whether you speak Spanish or not I hope you can feel the emotion and passion. For me, that is the beauty of Latin music.”

Listen to REVELACIÓN HERE:
https://selenagomez.lnk.to/RevelacionEP_

Almost entirely recorded remotely due to COVID, Gomez wanted to work with artists that she “admired and respected within the Latin community.” She tapped multiple Latin GRAMMY® Award-winner Tainy [Bad Bunny, J Balvin] and NEON16 as executive producers. Tasked with bringing Selena’s musical vision to life, Tainy expressed, “To be reunited with Selena on this project was amazing. We wanted to merge work I’ve been doing with the pop arena Selena has always mastered, to create something that was authentic to who she is. I’m a huge fan of her work and to have this responsibility has been an incredible honor.”

True to her vision, Gomez’s first Spanish EP presents a collection of 7 tracks, featuring collaborations with Latin GRAMMY® nominee and urban phenomenon Rauw Alejandro, multi-platinum urban artist Myke Towers and renowned international producer and DJ, DJ Snake.

From a visual perspective, Gomez collaborated with most influential Latin creators to bring her vision to life through beautiful imagery. She enlisted the duo of Los Pérez—Tania Verduzco and Adrián Pérez— and Fernando Nogari to direct the project’s first two accompanying music videos, and also tapped Erica Hernandez and Camila Falquez to create the EPs artwork concept, connecting imagery and the artist’s Mexican heritage. For their most recent single “Selfish Love,” Selena and DJ Snake recruited the award-winning filmmaker Rodrigo Saavedra.

Earlier this year, Selena revealed her first Spanish-language recording in a decade “De Una Vez,” which trended at #1 worldwide. Attracting widespread praise, Vogue raved, “The tale told through ‘De Una Vez’ has resonance no matter what language you speak,” and Billboard called it “empowering.”

“De Una Vez” was followed by the reggaeton infused and seductive track, “Baila Conmigo,” featuring Latin urban phenomenon Rauw Alejandro. The video portrayed “the sense of isolation we all are experiencing right now and how music really does connect us all no matter where we are in the world.” Produced by Tainy, Albert Hype, Jota Rosa, and NEON16, the track merges energized reggaeton rhythms and guitar with an empowering hook and seductive verses. Meanwhile, Brazilian filmmaker Fernando Nogari directed the accompanying music video. Shot between Los Angeles, Miami and a remote fishing village in Brazil, the visual integrates bold performances and breathtaking landscapes.

Target will have an exclusive CD featuring an alternative cover & poster. Purchase REVELACIÓN HERE: http://smarturl.it/REVELACIONSG
