Selena Gomez Says New Album, Rare, Made Her Feel Free
Selena Gomez is back with a bang after being out of the spotlight for some time. She recently dropped her new album which she claims was freeing and taught her to let go
Selena Gomez is proof that being out of sight, out of mind for some time can do good to your mind, body and soul. The singer has been away from the spotlight for a while and recently made her comeback with the release of her new album, Rare. After being away from constant media attention, the young pop singer dropped her new album and it appears she has healed, mentally and physically. She is now back with a bang and has treated her fans to some fabulous music.
In a recent interaction with Billboard, the 27-year-old singer spoke about how she found peace while working on her latest album and felt free by the end of it. She told the magazine that she wanted to create songs that people could feel and relate to, whether it was about gaining confidence, getting over hard relationships of just having fun. And while the final product turned out to be successful, the process wasn’t a walk in the park. The singer further revealed that Vulnerable is one of her favourite songs from the album because it talks about the strength it took her to take leaps of faith despite the uncertain outcome of certain situations.
She also spoke about the process of writing the songs that were inspired by her personal life and experiences. Selena Gomez said that she was a complete mess when she wrote Lose You To Lose Me and it was really difficult for her to pen down her emotions like that. However, by the time she shot the music video, the song had a completely different meaning. It was freeing. She stated that by the time she finished working on the song and the video, she had learned to let go. When she recently made an appearance on Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Selena Gomez revealed that she wanted to feature a few more songs in her album but chose to leave them out. “There's a few other songs that I couldn't help but want to exist. One of my tracks is called Boyfriend. So I can't wait for people to hear that one.” Coincidently, her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber too had a song with a similar title which he dropped during the initial phase of his music career. The 25-year-old singer released a track titled Boyfriend in 2012.
