Global recording artist, actress and executive producer Selena Gomez has had a year of undeniable career milestones.

The standout track Baila Conmigo with Latin urban phenomenon Rauw Alejandro also reigned at radio, topping Billboard’s Latin Airplay, Latin Pop Airplay and Latin Rhythm Airplay charts, simultaneously.
Today multi-platinum artist Selena Gomez and Colombian Latin GRAMMY winner Camilo release a soulful, pop track, 999, via Interscope Records.
The track was produced by GRAMMY and Latin GRAMMY Award winner Edgar Barrera along with A.C. and Camilo. About her collaboration with Camilo, Selena expressed, Camilo is a fantastic songwriter and singer who proudly wears his heart on his sleeve which is something we connected on immediately. I couldn’t have been more excited to collaborate with him. About his first collaboration with Gomez, Camilo added, Working with Selena Gomez is a tremendous honor and a huge moment in my career. From the beginning, 999 was written based on the color of her voice, and it wouldn’t have existed if it wasn’t for the dream of this collaboration. I’m very excited and it means so much to me to have this beautiful song, with an artist whom I respect and have followed for so long.
Directed by Sophie Muller, the video was shot in Los Angeles, CA. Coinciding with the contagious rhythm of the track, its video features both Gomez and Camilo in a visually natural setting, which coincides with the track’s simple and organic manner. Selena’s and Camilo’s performance is timeless and natural, showing a true and real connection when interpreting the lyrics, decorated by dreamy and natural settings.
Receiving unanimous acclaim for her long-awaited return to Latin music, Selena Gomez released her first Spanish-language EP, REVELACIÓN earlier this year. The collection of 7 tracks, featuring collaborations with Latin GRAMMY nominee and urban phenomenon Rauw Alejandro and multi-platinum urban artist Myke Towers, among others, was executive produced by multiple Latin GRAMMY Award-winner Tainy [Bad Bunny, J Balvin] and NEON16.
