Selena Gomez signs with Interscope Records!

Recommended Posts

Sources confirm that Selena Gomez has signed withJohn Janick’s Interscope after seven years onHollywood Records.

 

The diva will work closely with Janick—who bested multiple suitors to sign her—on the next phase of her career. In the meantime, A greatest-hits package with new music is in the works for a possible Q4 release, fulfilling Gomez's obligation to Ken Bunt’s Hollywood.

 

During her tenure with Disney, the Hollywood label developed her into a major new recording artist, with sales of 2.8m albums and 18.1m tracks, while helping her accrue a massive fan base (she’s garnered more than 1.7 billion total video views and enjoys 4.5m subscribers to her YouTube channel, as well as 22.7m Twitterfollowers). Gomez was coveted by all the majors.

 

The potential for the next phase of her career has certainly been underscored by the recent successes of Ariana Grande and Miley Cyrus—both of whom, like Gomez, migrated from kid-TV stardom to the pop charts.

 

After achieving Disney Channel celebrity, thanks to The Suite Life of Zack & Cody and starring vehicle The Wizards of Waverly Place (as well as assorted film roles), Gomez released her 2009 Hollywood set Kiss & Tell, the first of three with her band Selena Gomez & the Scene. The album bowed in the Top 10; it also yielded the platinum single “Naturally” (1.9m sold); it’s moved 920k RTD.

 

Their 2010 follow-up, A Year Without Rain, debuted at #4 and has done 810k total, while 2011’s When the Sun Goes Down (another #4 bow) spawned hits “Who Says” (1.9m) and the Top 10 Pop single “Love You Like a Love Song” (2.6m). It’s sold 691k since its release. During this period she continued working in films.

 

Gomez's first solo effort, 2013’s Stars Dance, marked her first #1 chart debut and featured the #1 Pop radio smash “Come & Get It” (2.4m tracks sold). It’s sold 383k RTD. That year also saw her appear in the decidedly adult-skewing flick Spring Breakers, a tweaking of her tween-princess image reminiscent of how Cyrus twerked away from Hannah Montana.

 

She’s still just 22.
