Pop star Selena Gomez had a tremendous 2020 in terms of music as she dropped her third solo studio album, ‘Rare’, which got thumbs-up from both the audience and the critics and she also collaborated with all-girl K-Pop band Blackpink on the song ‘Ice Cream.’

Coincidentally, a day after the first-year anniversary of ‘Rare,’ Selena was trending on Twitter once again and it looks like the 28-years-old crooner is all set to drop new music soon. However, the twist in the tale is Selena might not be dropping an English project but might soon release a song or two in Spanish.

Is Selena Gomez teasing fans with new Spanish music?

The multiple award-winning songstress may not have shared any details on her new project on social media but the hashtag “Selena Is Coming” was trending all over Twitter when photos of murals across Mexico went viral on the micro-blogging site. As seen on social media, we could spot the colorful photos saying the words “De Una Vez” & “Baila Conmigo” along with the name of the singer.

A gossip page on Twitter also shared the photos and revealed that Selena might soon be dropping new music in Spanish. “@SelenaGomez is coming with new Spanish-language music! A mural in Mexico teases the titles “De Una Vez” & “Baila Conmigo” - Gomez has “liked” several fan posts confirming the announcement is real.” Now, we are not sure whether she is dropping one single or two or an entire new album in Spanish, but the singer might confirm the good news soon. It was also observed in a few screenshots on social media that Selena Gomez has also been liking the pictures, which further hints us about her yet-unannounced project. For the unversed, Selena Gomez’s father is of Mexican descent while her mother has some Italian ancestry. Speaking about her Hispanic heritage, Selena had earlier said she is “a proud third-generation American-Mexican.”
