Selena Gomez Dishes About New Album To Jimmy Fallon
Selena Gomez visited The Tonight Show earlier this week and had quite a bit to say about her recently released album, "Rare". The album, which dropped last Friday, is the first thing we've heard from Gomez in several years.
Gomez told Jimmy Fallon all about the record, and specifically some of the better known tracks, including "Lose You To Love Me", which according to the host is her "biggest song ever." During the interview, she explained how Billie Eilish's brother, Finneas O'Connell, actually produced "Lose You To Love Me". She also spoke to how this new album was her opportunity to "be a voice" for people who are different situations, and to be as honest as possible.
As to why she named her album, Rare, Gomez had this to say:
"The word is so special and it means a lot. And I think in this time, where everyone is obsessed with feeling like they need to look the same way or get things done or whatever it may be...and obviously I don't judge, I'm just saying there are some girls who are hurting because they feel like they don't fit in. This word is eliminating that. Because you weren't meant to look like everyone else. You were meant to be who you are and that's unique and that's rare."
She also told Fallon that there were a few other tracks that didn't make the album, but she excited for the opportunity to share those with her fans, at some point in the future.
Here's the whole bit.
