In the latest Vevo Footnotes installment, Selena Gomez reveals her forthcoming Spanish EP was recorded almost entirely over Zoom due to the ongoing pandemic.
In a behind-the-scenes video for Vevo, the singer-songwriter shared info on the making of her music video “De Una Vez” while also revealing the recording process for her first-ever Spanish EP, titled Revelación, due March 12.
“‘De Una Vez’ was one of the first songs I worked on pretty early on,” Gomez says in the nearly 3-minute video. “At the time, doing a Spanish project was just an idea being bounced around. Then the rest of the project just kind of happened really quickly and organically.”
She adds, “As for the process, we actually recorded almost the entire EP on Zoom due to COVID.” Gomez also credits rising Venezuelan singer-songwriter Elena Rose as one of the EP’s “biggest” collaborators. “[Elena Rose is] an incredible female writer who I think really understands my heart and what I wanted to say in this project.”
“De Una Vez,” released Jan. 14, scored Gomez her second top five on the Hot Latin Songs chart as it debuted at No. 4 on the Jan. 30 survey. The rhythmic pop track was produced by Tainy, Albert Hype, Jota Rosa and Neon16, and preceded her second Spanish single, “Baila Conmigo,” in collaboration with Rauw Alejandro.
