Underrated Albums: Revival
November 27, 2017
Beloved Disney Channel star to pop singer and songwriter, Selena Marie Gomez made her first major move in her rise to fame as an actor. Gomez kickstarted her career in the acting industry as the lead role of a Disney Channel tv show “Wizards of Waverly Place”.
In 2008, she had her own band who were referred to as Selena Gomez & the Scene. She first started to pursue her music career with the band before they went their separate ways. From then, she started her individual singing career.
As of 2014, Gomez is signed with Interscope Records who helped her release her second studio album Revival on October 5, 2015. The album includes 14 tracks and comes in at 51 minutes long.
Revival is a coming-of-age kind of album. Gomez figures out who she is and this is shown in her song “Revival” named after the album. The lyrics, “The light inside me is bursting, shining. It’s my time to butterfly. This is my revival,” explains that it’s her time to take care of herself and flourish.
Her songs “Kill Em With Kindness, “Hands To Myself”, “Same Old Love”, “Sober”, “Good For You”’ ft. A$AP Rocky, “Me & the Rhythm”, “Me & My Girls”, and “Nobody” are also valuable listens.
All things considered, Gomez matures from her past albums and created this more sophisticated version of herself that she has blossomed into. The album gives us a closer look on her personality and grown self, and is definitely worth checking out.
