This is her revival.
Selena Gomez took time off to conquer lingering health issues. In October, the singer was hospitalized twice because of a low white blood cell count, a possible side effect for kidney transplant patients. On her second visit, Gomez reportedly suffered a panic attack –– she checked into a treatment center on the East Coast soon after.
After a social media hiatus, Gomez finally broke her silence on Instagram.
“It’s been awhile since you have heard from me, but I wanted to wish everyone a happy new year and to thank you for your love and support,” she said. “Last year was definitely a year of self-reflection, challenges and growth. It’s always those challenges which show you who you are and what you are capable of overcoming. Trust me, it’s not easy, but I am proud of the person I am becoming and look forward to the year ahead. Love you all.”
Producers Benny Blanco and Murda Beatz both commented on the post, leaving Selenators a breadcrumb trail to suspect they’re playing a role in the singer’s forthcoming album – something she’s been hard at work on for several years.
Blanco is responsible for crafting a handful of Selena’s hits, including “Kill Em With Kindness” and “Same Old Love.” This marks Murda Beatz’s first time publicly collaborating with Gomez. Murda is responsible for producing “MotorSport” and a bunch of Drake tracks.
It’s not clear when those new tunes arrive, but if you’re thirsty for Selena’s new music, sit tight! Singer-songwriter Julia Michaels is releasing an EP on Friday titled Inner Monologue Part 1, and it features a collaboration with Selena titled “Anxiety.”
