Selena has actually been sitting on the finished album for a while. She told Jimmy Fallon back in June that she was able to capture some "huge moments" in her personal life and put them into her songs. Presumably some of those moments will include her battle with lupus, her stint in rehab after her emotional breakdown, and the end of her relationships with Justin Bieber and The Weeknd.Gomez also took a much-needed break to focus on herself after her Revival World Tour ran her ragged. If that's what she needed to do so she could gift fans with new music, then we're totally on board. And that time off has clearly paid off for her. Following Selena's recent release of "Lose You to Love Me," a.k.a. an ode to Bieber, she was rewarded like never before. For the first time in her music career, one of her songs nabbed the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and Selena took to Instagram to celebrate it.
If that's any indication, SG2 might not only be Selena's most personal work to date, but also the best music she's ever put out. Look at her now, indeed.[video_embed id='1833640']How did this Toronto band become Selena Gomez's favourite?[/video_embed]View this post on Instagram
My first number 1!! This song is so dear to my heart. I’ve been working so hard to make this album as honest and fun as possible while remaining vulnerable enough to share where I am in life. I love you deeply and thank you so much for listening. I want to thank each and every person that was apart of this moment that I’ll never forget!
