Selena Gomez has made her debut on Premio Lo Nuestro! The 28-year-old singer gave a fiery performance of her new song “Baila Conmigo” with Rauw Alejandro at the awards show on Thursday.
Gomez wore a shiny, silky dress for the occasion.and was seen against a fiery red and orange background by herself. Then Alejandro was seen in his own space with a blue background. The two sang their respective verses in the pre-recorded performance.
The performance comes just weeks before the release of Gomez’s first Spanish EP. Revelation, which will be released on March 12. Earlier this month, he made his return to Latin music with the personal and empowering track “De Una Vez.” She followed up with the release of “Baila Conmigo” shortly after. Both “De Una Vez” and “Baila Conmigo” were produced by Tainy, Albert Hype, Jota Rosa and NEON16.
In a recent interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music, Gomez said that creating an album in Spanish has been something he “has wanted to do for 10 years.”
“Because I’m so, so proud of my heritage and I really felt like I wanted this to happen,” she shared. “And it happened, and I feel like it’s the perfect time. Just with all the division in the world, there’s something about Latin music that globally makes people feel things, you know?”
