Selena Gomez worked on Rare right up until deadline


Selena Gomez was writing new music for her latest album right up to her release deadline. The pop star dropped Rare, her first album in five years, on Friday (10Jan20), and Selena admits she and her co-writers Justin Tranter and Julia Michaels were continually tweaking the tunes until she had to submit the project to label bosses. “This is four years of my life, and I think I’m completely OK with releasing it,” she told Zane Lowe on Apple Music’s Beats 1. “But there had always been something that was preventing me or scaring me from doing it, and I’m so glad that I’ve followed that gut instinct (to release the album), because it’s so crazy that every single moment counts, down to literally (when the singles) Lose You to Love Me and Look at Her Now is out, but we were still, the last day, writing music (for)… the song I personally think is going to be one of our biggest as well.”
