The one-year-old Chilombo, originally released on March 6, 2020, made chart history as the biggest Billboard R&B debut from a female artist since Beyonce’s Lemonade in 2016. Chilombo topped the Billboard R&B chart at #1 not once but twice in 2020, and has garnered over 2 billion streams worldwide.
Chilombo has spun off five gold and platinum singles: “Triggered (freestyle),” “None Of Your Concern” featuring Big Sean, “P’$$Y Fairy (OTW)”, “Happiness Over Everything (H.O.E.)” featuring Miguel & Future, “B.S.” featuring H.E.R., and the most recent “Born Tired”. “B.S.” went to #1 at both urban and rhythm radio, and Jhené currently dominates those formats with guest appearances on recent singles from Big Sean, Ty Dolla $ign, and Saweetie.
Selena Gomez Releases Highly Anticipated Spanish Language EP “Revelación”
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:
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
