World-famous singer-songwriter-actor Selena Gomez celebrates her 29th birthday today. As the Hollywood sensation turns a year older, let’s go down memory lane and revisit some of her best songs.

Kiss and Tell

Selena Gomez entered big in the music industry with her electro-pop act Selena Gomez & the Scene. The track ‘Kiss & Tell’ from their debut album landed among the Top 10 on the Billboard 200.

Come and Get it

After releasing three albums with the band, she finally forged her career as a solo artist with her debut album ‘Stars Dance’ in 2013. ‘Come and Get it’ went on to become a dance staple for many with its fusion of electro-pop and Punjabi bhangra music. The sultry lead single of the album was produced in collaboration with Stargate and Ester Dean.

Lose you to love me

Over time her music became more of a reflection of her personal life. She started beautifully instilling her real emotions into the music she produced. ‘Lose you to love me’ became her first No. 1 single. The track starts with a shimmering piano-based melody and goes on to talk about severing all ties with a former partner to reconnect and heal. A final goodbye, if you will. The song from her album ‘Rare’ was produced after teaming up with Julia Michaels and Justin Tranter.

The heart wants what it wants

‘The Heart wants what it wants’ became her first independent single to break the charts. The electro-pop track offered a minimalist approach to music production, focusing more on her vocals and making them pop out.


Honouring her Mexican heritage, Selena Gomez released her first Spanish-language EP ‘Revelación’. “This has been something I’ve wanted to do for 10 years, working on a Spanish project, because I’m so, so proud of my heritage,” she told Apple Music in an interview.

With the track “Baila Conmigo,” the singer teams up with Puerto Rican singer Rauw Alejandro blending R&B and Latin Pop.

Ice Cream

The queen of collaborations, Selena Gomez crossed borders to team up with the K-Pop sensation BLACKPINK in 2020 for the single ‘Ice Cream’. The pop track was co-written by Ariana Grande, Victoria Monét, Teddy, and more. Ice Cream became a house party essential and for all the right reasons.
