Revelación - EP
Eagerly anticipated after years of choice collaborations with Latin-music hitmakers, Selena Gomez’s first-ever Spanish-language project delivers everything one hoped it would. Though its relative brevity will no doubt leave listeners wanting more, Revelación embraces the contemporary sounds of Latin pop without sacrificing what makes her so special to her fans. From the reggaetón thump of “Buscando Amor” to the resplendent balladry of “De Una Vez,” she sounds perfectly at home singing in Spanish over Tainy’s elegant productions. She limits her vocal collaborations here to two—first with R&B standout Rauw Alejandro on the hypnotically slow “Baila Conmigo” and next with Latin trap’s next big thing Myke Towers on “Dámelo To’.” On bilingual closer “Selfish Love,” she reunites with DJ Snake to revive their “Taki Taki” might, albeit through a jazzy Ibiza club lens.
