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."
