After years of protecting her private life and braving through some crazy, monumental moments, Selena Gomez is slowly making her way back into the public eye. During her hiatus, the singer processed experiences and used her singing career as a creative outlet. She has confirmed that she has finally completed a new album which is expected to drop this year.

Gomez has been very specific when deciding what exactly she exposes to the public. This upcoming album is no different.  She has decided to take the reins into her own hands, using her upcoming pop album to tell her own personal story. "Working on this new record, I just wanted it to be me, all me," she said on Coach's Dream It Real podcast.

"Every song is a story I’ve experienced. To that point, I think there’s no one who’s going to tell my story better than myself," Gomez continued. "I just really wanted to kind of just live with my story a bit and create it into something that means a lot to me."

Despite life's challenges, the singer persevered, creating an album that has given her a sense of relief and serves as the culmination of Gomez's tenacity and strength—a spirit that will surely be felt upon listening to the project.

You can expect a "sense of strong pop" with "a lot of more soulful tracks." Selena Gomez has been an advocate for kindness and respect among all generations and has admirably used her platform as a way to connect to her fans on a personal level. This album is no exception.
