    I cannot beleive that it took us that long to finally get an own thread for Selena Gomez in the General Artists Discussion!

    I haven't been aware of Selena's music from the beginnin' of her career but I started to like her after the release of "Naturally". I bought "A Year Without Rain", when it was reduced and I started to fall in love with her. I bought her other two albums on the date of their releases, I've also attened to her "Stars Dance" Tour and I have to say that I was amused and truly impressed. It's incredible how she's grown-up that fast! - If you don't know, what I'm talkin' about, you better take a closer look on her video for "Come & Get It" again.

    --------------------------------------

    Since today, it's all on the web! Rumor has it that Selene is about to release her first GREATEST HITS later this year!
    The release of a Greatest Hits will set her free from her current record label "Hollywood Records". Currently, she''s in the studio recordin' new material.

    news // 26 Jun 2014
    Selena Gomez to release “Greatest Hits Album” later this year!

    When you are ready? Come and end your record deal with a “Greatest Hits“. Yes. Disney princess and international popstar Selena Gomez is currently working in the studio on new music to delight her fans.

    This month, Selena Gomez has fired Direct Management’s Martin Kirkup and Steve Jensen, according to those close to the artist and start working in her new solo project, which will be released next year. Her new handler is officially Aleen Kesheshian of Brillstein Grey, a heavyweight in the film-and-TV sector; among her longtime clients are Jennifer Aniston, Natalie Portman, Mark Ruffalo, Zoe Saldana and Laura Linney.

    Gomez is working on a couple of new tracks for a greatest hits collection that will be her final release under her current Disney deal with Hollywood Records. The compilation is scheduled to be released this fall including smash singles “Come & Get It” and “Slow Down“, plus songs recorded in her previously musical project Selena Gomez & the Scene, including hits like “Naturally” or “Love You Like a Love Song“.

    Thoughts?

    Personally, I think it's way too early for that! - I'm still waitin' for that lost 3rd single taken from "Stars Dance" and after that she should release a whole new studio album! Don't wanna see an Adam Lamber 2.0!

      There was no topic for her? Biggest shock of the year tbh

      She has actually 8 platinum singles by the way

      Anyway, we discussed her announced GH earlier today in the "Stars Dance" charts topic.

      There i posted this list:

      1. Falling Down
      2. Naturally
      3. Round And Round
      4. A Year Without Rain
      5. Who Says
      (6. Bang Bang Bang)
      7. Love You Like A Love Song
      8. Come & Get It
      9. Slow Down
      (10. Dices)

      And now it just came to my mind that i totally forgot "Hit The Lights". So looking back she really had amazing singles. Can't wait for new songs.

      edit: Mainshow was fast! I think a GH is okay after four (!) albums and looking at the list above i'd say she has enough material for it.

        ikr! She's released four albums and if you search for "Selena Gomez" in the General Artists Discusscion section, you'll just find 6 pages without one pointin' to an own topic! I was totally shocked as well!

        If you look it that way, it shouldn't offend anyone. Britney released her first Greatest Hits album (and the only one which matters) after four studio albums as well. Nevertheless, Britney had released 19 singles at that time. That's almost the double amount of the released singles by Selena. - I don't think that an artist should do a "Greatest Hits", when he or she even didn't release enough singles to fill the whole album. And isn't the point of a "Greatest Hits" to release the biggest, most memorable hits/tunes? - Selena could do a "Singles Collection" (9 tracks) + a whole new album (11 tracks) Not till then she'll reach the glorious 19-track GH Britney had released

          Can't believe there wasn't even a thread for Selena Gomez before!

          I'm ok with a Greatest Hits album coming out, as long as it's a good and not sloppy one like many artists release these days. I want a good seletion of songs and a couple of new ones to promote the album!

            A GH album at this point is very tacky imo.... eight singles are not enough. I will no longer support her music, she needs to get her life back in order and get rid of Bieber. I mean we all had those kind of relationships, no one can save her but she herself.
            ? Girls' Generation ?
            ? HyoYeon ? Britney Spears ?

            Girls' Generation is the best-selling girl group of all time.

              But how can this turn out to be a good "Greatest Hits" album, when she's just released 10 singles so far?

              So you decided not to like her music now because o her relationship to Bieber? - Isn't that a bit over the top? - We don't have a problem with Britney's boyfriend, although he's said to be homophobic.

                Yeah that's true. It's definitely too early for her to release one, but if she really is going to be releasing one I hope they will choose the tracklist wisely and hopefully some new songs.

                  You compare a person that has a criminal record, is taking drugs and is obviously a pretentious brat to Britney's boyfriend? Okay.

                    It's not like Britney, Justin Timberlake or Kevin Federline have never taken drugs - I do not support Selena's relationship with Bieber but she's a grown-up woman. If she's really in love with someone who are we do judge her or even start to not like her music because of that? - It's kinda a Rihanna/Chris Brown situation here; just without the beatin' and less drugs for the girl - And we still listen to Rihanna's music, don't we?

                      I will not stop supporting someone based on who they're dating but I do truly hope that Selena will ditch Justin Beaver once and for all. She deserves a real man that treats her right, not that messed up/lost kid.

                      Anway, let's not make it a Selena/Justin thread. Let's keep it fun.

                      What is your favorite single and non-single from each album?

Granted, her relationship with Bieber is none of my business but she is setting a bad example to all women and young girls out there. I hope that she will find her way out of this mess one day and that it doesn't end in the way Britney's marriage did.

                          A greatest hits is way too early. Britney did it four studio albums into her career but she indeed had a lot of big hits in those four studio albums.

                            If you say it that way, I completely agree with you. Most of nowadays female pop stars are no good examples to young fans and I think that Selena has every right to make her own mistakes, like Britney did. That said, I do not wish her to fall the same way and I would love to see her ditchin' Justin for good. Like Noahh said, she deserves a real man.

                            That's a good idea, my dear friend ;) - Here are my favourites:

                            I do not own this album and I honestly do not care about the tracks. They are too wannabe Disney-rock for me. Haven't listened to the tracks.

                              Agree, but after all it's because she want to leave the label so i think it's the best way to end the contract.
                              I'm still mad at how they handled the SD era. "Stars Dance", "Like A Champion", "Birthday", "Save The Day" etc. could have been singles!

                                  It's kind of hard to chose a favorite single since there are only 2 bloody singles from each album

                                  And technically she only released 1 album... she was always the one who took that "i'm in a band" thing super serious
                                  ? Girls' Generation ?
                                  ? HyoYeon ? Britney Spears ?

                                  Girls' Generation is the best-selling girl group of all time.

                                      I like her since Stars Dance, the music she did before isn't my taste :/ I really hoped for a new studio album and not a Greatest Hits then

                                      favorite single: Slow Down (both were weak in comparrison with those other great tracks)
                                      favorite album track: Undercover
                                      I am not trying to seduce you... Would you like me to seduce you? Is that what you're trying to tell me?

                                          Totally agree on that! - Both singles of "Stars Dance" are far away from being weak. They brought her further, to a new sound, to a new direction and image.
                                          She cannot go this Disney-route forever. "Come & Get It" was her growin' up and I really hope that she continues sharin' it with us (musically speakin', of course)

                                              Totally agree on that and I can just repeat on and on what I've already written on Ukmix: "Come & Get It" is her own "I'm a Slave 4 U" - I think that both songs still sound fresh and they'll probably always be.

                                              ------------------

                                              MTV posted an article titled "This Is Why Selena Gomez Is More Than Her Relationship"

                                              I was really looking for some thoughtful points here but it's just a freakin' bland opinion without any useful content. However, if you want to read it:

                                              "This Is Why Selena Gomez Is More Than Her Relationship"

                                              Gomez should not be defined by Justin Bieber.
                                              by Emilee Lindner 14 hours ago

                                              We Selenators look out for each other. So when we noticed that Selena Gomez was throwing out a few signs that she might be going through some stuff, we wanted to jump right there by her side.

                                              You know, whether her vague quotes were about Justin Bieber doesn’t matter. The fact is, Selenators are family, and when she speaks to us, we speak back.

                                              Earlier this week, she reached out directly to fans on Instagram. “You’re always listened to,” she wrote on one pic, continuing on another, “And usually always right.”

                                              Selenators, whether they supported Jelena or not, just want her to be happy. But many (media like us are to blame) are pegging Selena’s every move to Justin’s photos with a new girl. Selena posts pics with friends? It must be because she’s trying to forget Justin. Selena posts picture of ocean? She must be contemplating her lost relationship. Oh, she’s hanging out with other people? She trying to make him jealous. She’s wearing a bikini? Definitely trying to make Justin jealous. And that quote she put up? That must be her sending shade to Justin.

                                              Not to mention this article that claims they’re “officially engaged” in a rebound dating duel.

                                              Let’s stop reading into Selena’s life through a Justin Bieber lens. Let’s just see Selena for Selena.

                                              While the couple took a weird, meandering, on-again-off-again turn, she admitted on Instagram that she always knew how it would end up. So right now, let’s just work on happiness. For you, Selena, and for all of us.

                                                  She looks incredible and her boobs ... is it just me or did they get bigger? Look at them... Imagine how her "Come & Get It" video would be shot right now.

                                                  So perhaps the rumors about her having surgery are true after all.

I will no longer support her music, she needs to get her life back in order and get rid of Bieber. I mean we all had those kind of relationships, no one can save her but she herself.

                                                        Janick Inks Diva Amid Fierce Competition

                                                        September 5, 2014

                                                        Sources confirm that Selena Gomez has signed with John Janick’s Interscope after seven years onHollywood Records.

                                                        The diva will work closely with Janick—who bested multiple suitors to sign her—on the next phase of her career. In the meantime, A greatest-hits package with new music is in the works for a possible Q4 release, fulfilling Gomez's obligation to Ken Bunt’s Hollywood.

                                                        During her tenure with Disney, the Hollywood label developed her into a major new recording artist, with sales of 2.8m albums and 18.1m tracks, while helping her accrue a massive fan base (she’s garnered more than 1.7 billion total video views and enjoys 4.5m subscribers to her YouTube channel, as well as 22.7mTwitter followers). Gomez was coveted by all the majors.

                                                        The potential for the next phase of her career has certainly been underscored by the recent successes ofAriana Grande and Miley Cyrus—both of whom, like Gomez, migrated from kid-TV stardom to the pop charts.

                                                        After achieving Disney Channel celebrity, thanks to The Suite Life of Zack & Cody and starring vehicle The Wizards of Waverly Place (as well as assorted film roles), Gomez released her 2009 Hollywood set Kiss & Tell, the first of three with her band Selena Gomez & the Scene. The album bowed in the Top 10; it also yielded the platinum single “Naturally” (1.9m sold); it’s moved 920k RTD.

                                                        Their 2010 follow-up, A Year Without Rain, debuted at #4 and has done 810k total, while 2011’s When the Sun Goes Down (another #4 bow) spawned hits “Who Says” (1.9m) and the Top 10 Pop single “Love You Like a Love Song” (2.6m). It’s sold 691k since its release. During this period she continued working in films.

                                                        Gomez's first solo effort, 2013’s Stars Dance, marked her first #1 chart debut and featured the #1 Pop radio smash “Come & Get It” (2.4m tracks sold). It’s sold 383k RTD. That year also saw her appear in the decidedly adult-skewing flick Spring Breakers, a tweaking of her tween-princess image reminiscent of how Cyrus twerked away from Hannah Montana.
