The multi-hyphenate singer recently received a nod for Best Latin Pop Album for her Spanish-language EP or extended play, Revelación, which she released in March. Though Wolves singer is now officially a Grammy nominee, she has a long way togo as she’s up against the big competition in the category, nominated alongside Pablo Alborán (Vértigo), Paula Arenas (Mis Amores), Ricardo Arjona (Hecho a la Antigua), Camilo (Mis Manos), and Alex Cuba (Mendó).
However, fans have been collectively squealing since the 29-year-old singer received a Grammy nomination for her Latin Pop album, Revelación, earlier today, on November 23. Revelación is Selena’s first project to feature music prominently in Spanish, earned Selena’s first-ever Latin Grammy nomination earlier this year for the music video for its opening track, “De Una Vez.”
Wolves singer celebrated the news and thanked her delighted fans on Wednesday. She took to her social media and pens, “Are you kidding me!? Revelación is nominated for a GRAMMY! This project is so special to me for so many reasons and I could not have made it happen without this incredible team of people by my side. I am forever grateful to each and every one of you and of course MY FANS,” while mentioning every crew member.
Selena’s big honor comes more than seven months after the singer told Vogue she was thinking about taking a step back from making music. “It’s hard to keep doing music when people don’t necessarily take you seriously,” she told the magazine. “I’ve had moments where I’ve been like, ‘What’s the point? Why do I keep doing this?'”
“Lose You to Love Me I felt was the best song I’ve ever released, and for some people, it still wasn’t enough,” she said of her 2019 Billboard-topping track. “I think there are a lot of people who enjoy my music, and for that, I’m so thankful, for that I keep going, but I think the next time I do an album it’ll be different. I want to give it one last try before I maybe retire music.” We have a feeling she might just be inspired to keep going, considering her latest nomination.
