Selena Gomez has returned to the music scene, and she’s boasting one of the most impressive comebacks in music history.
With the recent release of her fifth studio effort Revival, the 23-year-old hit-maker demonstrates just how far she’s progressed since being propelled to the forefronts of mainstream fame with her role in the instant Disney Channel hit show Wizards of Waverly Place. On Revival, gone are the glossy pop tunes and campy image; rather, the critically acclaimed record showcases sultry torch songs and a new, mature public image.
Revival follows a brief hiatus wherein the accomplished chanteuse was reduced to a mere tabloid story by shallow celebrity journalists. In a new candid interview with Billboard, Gomez revealed the true cause of her period out of the spotlight; she was diagnosed with lupus, and had undergone chemotherapy.
The strength that Gomez channeled during her bout with the autoimmune disease is easily perceptible on Revival. The masterpiece sees a braver, stronger Gomez, the likes of which have never been glimpsed before. Released on October 9th, Revival explores Gomez’s newfound confidence, musical maturation, and artistic growth.
Simple put; you’ve never seen Gomezlike this before.
Revival has been earning rave reviews from fans and critics alike. The album’s hypnotizing lead single “Good for You” has been praised by critics, and peaked at number five on the Billboard Hot 100, thereby becoming her highest-charting U.S. single.
Selena Gomez is back in the driver’s seat. With a new image, new style, and new album, Ms. Gomez is ready for a bold career turnaround. You can witness the reinvention firsthand by catching Selena Gomez live in concert on her new Revival Tour, which will take the pop phenomenon to venues such as Montreal’s Bell Centre and Toronto’s Air Canada Centre, Vancouver’s Rogers Arena, Edmonton’s Rexall Place, Calgary’s Scotiabank Saddledome, Saskatoon’s SaskTel Centre, Winnipeg’s MTS Centre, London’s Budweiser Gardens, and Ottawa’s Canadian Tire Centre.
