Selena Gomez is reconnecting with her Latino roots with the release of her next album, one Spanish-language song at a time.
The 19-year-old starlet told Hollywood Life her Spanish-language album is almost done, but she can’t confirm when it will be released.
“It’s at an in-between stage, because I still want to put out a fourth record and also the Spanish record,” she explains. “So it’s just all timing. I have a few other songs to do and it will come out. I promise,” Gomez told Hollywood Life.
Gomez has released three albums with Hollywood Records since 2009. Her first album “Kiss & Tell” was followed by “A Year Without Rain” and her 2011 release of “When the Sun Goes Down,” which includes songs co-written by Katy Perry and Brittany Spears.
To get a sneak peek at what Gomez sounds like in Spanish listen to her Spanish version of “A Year Without Rain.”

The Texan born star’s father is of Mexican heritage, but she lost her ability to speak Spanish when she began school, according to media reports. Gomez was named after famous Tejano singer Selena Quintanilla-Perez, according to IMDB.
Still a teenager, Gomez has a long list of accomplishments including three albums, several films and TV series, and her own clothing line Dream Out Loud that sells in Kmart. Soon she’ll add her Spanish album to that list and perhaps be ready for a full Spanish-language crossover?
