Selena Gomez And Julia Michaels Team Up For New Song, “Anxiety”
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.”
