27-year-old Selena Gomez has been hard at work on her upcoming debut studio album. The recording process begins in October 2012 shortly after she announced she and The Scene were on a hiatus. The songstress began her music career in the band she created. They released three studio albums and their latest single Love You Like A Love Song went 4x platinum becoming their highest-selling single. With three hit albums under her belt, Gomez felt she was ready to go solo venturing into a more mature electro-pop genre.
At 5 years old Selena Marie Gomez started acting on the long-running children’s series Barney & Friends. There she met her long time friend and BFF Demi Lovato. In 2006 she made several appearances on top Disney shows Suite Life of Zack & Cody and Hannah Montana. The following year she starred in her own hit show Wizards of Waverly Place.

Recently she expanded her acting career with a complete 180 from her Disney days. She starred in the Rated R drama Spring Breakers with James Franco. Her fans realized Selena had grown out of her precious innocent roles and wanted to be taken more seriously as an actress. She is getting set for another adult drama The Getaway. Her acting transition is a reflection of where she is artistic with her new music. Producer Jason Evigan has called her the new J-LO. With her mature ethnic-sounding music inspired by electro-pop Selena is expanding her musical reach and stepping out as a singer.
