Leer en español: Las mejores canciones de Selena Gómez ante su posible retiro
Selena Gomez is one of the most important artists on the planet. At 28, she became one of the most relevant pop singers in recent years. However, the truth is that she could retire from music sooner rather than later. This is mentioned by CNN, saying that she would be one step away from retiring from music.
In a recent interview with Vogue, Selena Gomez opened up and mentioned that she felt really bad about not being recognized by the public and fans. Basically, she mentioned that a lot of people "don't take her seriously" so she can't find any reason to "keep doing that."
However, it is also clear that she will "try one more time" before permanently retiring from music, something she did with her latest album: Revelación, her fourth studio album and the first that will be completely in Spanish. With this in mind, we decided to review all the songs of her career to choose the most important ones.
Lose You To Love Me
One of the best-known songs of the artist. Released in 2019, it is a true love hymn, with a classic catchy pop melody. However, that is not all: from the lyrics side it is also important, since they allow us to know a sentimental aspect of Selena Gómez.
El Mundo even mentions that she wrote it thinking about Justin Bieber, the singer's ex-boyfriend. She had mentioned that she wrote it thinking about aspects of her past, with the intention of telling people to "feel hopeful", because you can always get ahead and find a better version of yourself.
Come & Get It
A song that belongs to her first studio album, Stars Dance, which came out in 2013. It was also the first single from that album, which catapulted her to fame within the pop industry.
Come & Get It is presented as a production belonging to the electropop genre, with a really moving rhythm and arrangements that make it really fresh. All this makes it a song that sticks to us immediately, with a chorus that you won't be able to stop singing.
Kill Em With Kindness
If we talk about catchy songs, we cannot fail to mention this one. Pertaining to the second studio album, Revival, from 2015, it came out as the fourth single from the album. At first, when we hear the wonderful hiss, we know that something great is coming.
As the song progresses, we discover a dance and even electro-house style, making it one of the favorites of the public. In 2017, she even had her own acoustic version, which was part of the soundtrack of 13 Reasons Why, the hit Netflix series of which Gómez is the producer.
Hands To Myself
Also belonging to Revival, we have a dance-pop single, although it also dives into the field of tech house. At first, the song starts off with a really calm melody, although reaching a midpoint is its best version, with fascinating moving rhythms.
As for the lyrics, we have a theme that talks about sensuality and romance. It was even mentioned that her ex-partner, Justin Bieber, was "jealous" for the singer's performance in the video clip, although he also admitted that he could not stop playing the song.
Perhaps the most moving of all, because it invites you to dance immediately. Released in 2013, it is also shown as a classic dance-pop oriented production, with a catchy chorus and really good electronic arrangements, in what was one of Selena's first steps towards success.
In short, Selena Gómez's career was marked by iconic songs, which made her one of the most important pop artists of recent years. Let's hope that his career does not end suddenly, because she still has much more talent to exploit.
