Fans are hoping that the new collaboration will herald a new album from Selena, who had had a tough year last year
Selena Gomez who was more in the news in recent times for emotional and relationship issues has finally released some new music, much to the joy of her fans.
The new song is a collaboration with 'Issues' singer Julia Michaels called 'Anxiety' and is part of Michaels upcoming five song EP. It was released on January 24, and expectedly had fans pouring their praises on it.

After listening to the track, her fans took to Twitter to share their overwhelming response. “ANXIETY BY JULIA AND SELENA IS SO GOOD I LIKE IT ONG SELENA,” one fan wrote. "JULIA FT NIALL AND SELENA IM DEAD @juliamichaels SO PERFECT,” another praise
The song marks Selena's first piece since 'Taki Taki' which was released in September 2018.
As the song was premiered on Apple Music, Julia revealed how the collaboration came about.
“I was writing with Scott Harrison, Patrick and I basically was just like I kind of want to talk about these sort of things that I deal with on a daily basis. Not just anxiety but the fear of missing out and sort of wanting to do things but never actually like having the ability to go through with anything that you want to do. So we wrote Anxiety and I sent it to Selena,” Julia explained.
“And, I was like I think it’d be really awesome to have a song with two women on it that struggle with the same thing, that is talking about something other than two women fighting for a guy’s attention. Or something like that. It’s almost like a female empowerment song without it being a female empowerment song. It’s us saying hey we have anxiety and we’re okay with it. And she was like I am so into this, I love this so much.”
The song could be a sign that more music may be forthcoming from the 'Slow Down' singer, whose last album L.O.V.E came out way back in 2016.
“My album’s coming out later. I’m done with it,” she shared during a friend’s Instagram Live in August of 2018.
Only time will tell how much time Selena meant by "later." However, it would be bad form to blame Selena as she went through a real tough time last year, what with relationship troubles and a stint at an emotional rehab.
