Selenators, are you ready?! While Selena Gomez has been preparing to release a new album, HollywoodLife.com spoke EXCLUSIVELY with the singer’s vocal coach — who spilled all about her new ‘more adult’ sound!
If you love Selena Gomez, 22, as much as we do, then you’re well aware of the struggle that is the wait for new music from the pop princess. Pretty much unbearable, right? Luckily, we’ve been able to tide ourselves over until the former Disney darling drops new tunes. How? By chatting EXCLUSIVELY with the man behind Selena’s angelic voice: Stevie Mackey — who dished on what we can expect from the “Come And Get It” songstress’ next LP!
“Selena’s voice sounds amazing and her album will be much different than the Disney sound she’s done in the past,” Stevie tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “This album will be more adult, more feminine and more about Selena’s experiences. She’s recorded a lot of new songs at this point and she sounds beautiful.” Of course she does!
Stevie, who is also helping Jennifer Lopez prepare for her Vegas residency, assured us that Selly’s new material will be very personal. Don’t be surprised if she draws inspiration from her on-again, off-again relationship with Justin Bieber, 21.
“She doesn’t mention [Justin] directly, but one could deduce that she is. Most artists sing about their present or past relationships in their music. Selena’s no different,” Stevie explains. No matter what she sings about, we know Miss Gomez’s next tracks will be nothing short of ah-mazing!
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Selena plans to be “authentic and raw” on all her new songs. She’s even taking notes from other Top 40 divas, Lady Gaga and Kelly Clarkson — who have the same girl power vibes she’d like to emulate on her upcoming record.
“Think Lady Gaga’s ‘Born This Way’ meets Kelly Clarkson’s ‘Stronger’. Selena’s new music vibe is all about self empowerment. She said she wanted to sing songs that reflect where she is in her life, her inner strength, her struggles and challenges, her ups and downs, and most importantly, coming out on top,” a source reveals to us EXCLUSIVELY. Sounds more adult to us — just like Stevie said!
“It’s really important that her music be authentic and honest,” the insider adds. “The word ‘honest’ will be a key theme in the album. An album she describes as baring her soul.”
HollywoodLifers — while the anticipation for the new album is killing us, let us know what YOU think! Are you stoked to hear Selena sing with a more adult sound?
