Selena Gomez To Be The Next J.Lo Thanks To New Album's Different Sound?!

| Filed under: Music MinuteJennifer LopezSelena Gomez

selena gomez new album direction

Selena Gomez is “not a little girl anymore” — ahem, Spring Breakers — and it sure sounds like she wants everyone to know.

Her upcoming album, set to drop this summer, is yet another step in that direction — or at least, it could be! One of Selena’s album collaborators, Jason Evigan spoke out about the actress-singer’s new music:

"Her album's really cool. It's a really strong dance record and it's really cool actually. I think it's going to take her to the next level too… All the stuff I've heard has been really, really cool. She's got some really cool like ethnic influence, kind of tribally dance drums and stuff like that. I kind of feel she's going to be like a new J.Lo kind of thing."

WHOA! That’s quite a claim to make! But the comparison doesn’t end there! Apparently, Selena and Jennifer both wanted the same tune Save the Day on their according albums, but Selena won out:

“Jennifer Lopez wanted [it] really badly. It's like real. It's like really cool up-tempo… It's about like kind of '[Let's] dance all night. Let's save the day. Let's go into the next day. Let's keep it going all night' type of thing."

He also added this album could be Selena’s big break in music:

“She wants to be like that and be respected like the great pop artists out there… And I think she is. I think this album is really gonna blossom her into a new realm of electronic pop dance artist."

Let’s hope we won’t be witness to an S.Go vs. J.Lo cat fight! Either way, we're keeping a special eye out for Selena's upcoming MTV Movie Awards' performance!

  3. dani says – reply to this


    I think Selena is a good and a talented girl but not as a singer and dancer.

    Jennifer Lopez is one of the most beautiful women working today in the etertainment industry. She is also a "triple threat" (singer/actress/dancer). Selena is still essentially a cute Disney Princess, and has people marketing her to make her "more adult" now that she is no longer with Justin, and has a "risky" movie out in theatres. But no, she will never be the next Jennifer Lopez. Jennifer has always come across as a strong woman, both in music and in film. Selena comes across as a young girl with no real strength or subtance in her art.

    selena gomez to be the next jlo… what?? she's going to be a washed up has-been? although i can see the resemblence…neither has any talent

  9. fid says – reply to this


    Can someone please get Perez's bank statements so we can see that he clearly is getting paid by Selena Gomez's people, as well as the Kardashians? The amount of stuff he writes about those 2 is nauseating.

    Someone is paying Perez to promote this little girl. The next JLo? At least JLo can sing and dance, and she's a decent actress. Selena can do none of those. She should have stayed on that wizard show where she could play herself and make little kids happy. No one is going to take this baby faced little girl serious except a bunch of little girls.

    Selena will never be the next Jlow because Selena actually worked to where she is and didnt sleep her way there or ripp of so many other artists in the way..Also yoU CANNOT COMPARE what this 20yr old has achieved to a 45yr old has been!! at Sels Age Jenny was still banging everyone from the block!

  12. 12

    Rise to fame through one Selena, buried by Another..poor jenny from the block,,,,she might have to go back to Santeria for this one

  13. katie says – reply to this


    I think jlo and selena are both great girls. leave them alone. what is with all the hate?

  14. So.. says – reply to this


    Is she a hoe?

  15. DreamOn says – reply to this


    With that "earthy" bs

    J-LOW is SPIC trash who couldn't get white boy Ben to knock her up. At least Selena is half white and has some talent. J-SPIC slept her ghetto saggy ass into a career she didn't deserve.

    When she reaches $250 million in net worth then I will say she is the next J.Lo.
    Unfortunately for Selena, she has been in acting/singing industry for 13 years and has a net worth of 5 million to show for it. Miley Cyrus has been in the same industry for the same amount of time and her net worth is $120 million.

  18. iLike says – reply to this


    good feelings

  19. akela says – reply to this


    Re: rb – " Selena's net worth is $5 million" I have been listening to this crap since 2010. For your kind information, she bought a $3 million dollar house in tarzana last year. Her net worth is much more than $5 million. Some websites are reporting "her net worth is $5 million" for last 2-3 years. This is bs.

    Re: fid

    Are you being forced to read?

  21. Nala says – reply to this


    Re: rb

    Her net worth was 5.5 million in 2009. Right now we do not know what it is. And Miley is 120 million only because of Hannah Montana the concerts, promotions etc After DISNEY her net worth has not increased at all.

  22. Kaylie says – reply to this


    Re: rb – Actually, Selena was only acting at the moment while Miley was acting & singing for the same amount of time. Miley went on numerous tours to promote her show Hannah Montana which was a musical show which released plenty of albums and such. Also, the Hannah Montana sales were pretty big. She's had dolls made after her based on the show and high selling merchandise. Besides, Selenas show didnt bring in all that revenue because it wasnt a musical show where she could go on tours for it and promote it in the was Miley did. So, actually theres a reason why Sels net worth is so low but shes getting there cause she has so much going on right now.

  23. Casey says – reply to this


    Love them both but just don't think you can compare them. They are so different in so many ways. Neither is particarlly a strong singer but hey we all love Brit Brit and she can't sing either. That said I think both are stunning,hot women.

  24. Jake says – reply to this


    They're only comparing Selena to J Lo because Selena will be more mature and dance in this next album.. I'm here for it

    *sigh* Why do we have to keep calling young performers " the next" anything? Selena Gomez is doing just fine being Selena Gomez. She has a new album set to come out, two more movies set for release this year, several awards show appearances coming up, a new movie with William H. Macy that starts filming this month, a tour, her work for Adidas Neo, her own clothing line, her work with UNICEF………She has a full life and a blossoming post-Disney career (which is more than can be said for Miley). Miley will never make the kind of money she made as Hannah Montana again, and yet has nothing but bad things to say about the corporation that made her so wealthy. Selena is just getting started and has the sense not to trash the channel where she got her start.

    The next J.Lo? hahaha that's funny Selena is nice but she has to be the most boring Disney star out of the trinity (Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato), I'm not a huge fan of her singing but she's an ok …actress? and like I said she's nice
