Those who want to bring Selena Gomez down only received a slap in the face when she decided to create a masterpiece in her new album, “Revival.”

Serves you right, haters. This unique and renewed era of Gomez’s career clearly shows that she has control and focus, not only as an artist, but also as a person who can turn something negative into something positive.

In the first song, called “Revival,” Gomez stated, “I dive into the future, but I’m blinded by the sun. I’m reborn in every moment, so who knows what I’ll become.”

For the last two years, Gomez was misjudged and criticized while she was still trying to figure everything out in her personal life. During this time, she started thinking about her next album, which came out to be “Revival.”

This is definitely not just “some pop album.” This is an inspiration to everyone, from those who feel down to those who feel mistreated.

In “Kill ‘Em With Kindness,” one of the songs in her album, Gomez sings, “The world can be a nasty place, you know it, I know it. We don’t have to fall from grace.”

Gomez’s connection to ideas most people can relate to, followed by encouraging statements, gives her audience a reason to appreciate the music. Throughout the whole album, her lyrics are so profound and genuine that those who hear them will understand the story behind them.

Her first single from this album, “Good For You (feat. A$AP Rocky),” publicly released in August 19, 2015, gained popularity quickly. This was not just because it was good, but because it was different from what she had done before.

“Good For You” was a vocal-based, slow song that blew my mind. Even the rap by A$AP Rocky was slow! The rhythm flowed naturally and the song became my play-on-repeat song for days.

The second (much more lively) single was “Same Old Love,” that could get stuck in your head for weeks. From the finger-snapping rhythm to the sexy lyrics, this song cannot be beat.

I thoroughly enjoyed the music video of “Same Old Love” because it was different from stereotypes. Sure the title talks about love, but it is not what most people think. The video offered much more: a relation between a mom and her son, a dad and a baby, and even a little girl and her fish!

Other songs, such as “Hands to Myself” and “Body Heat,” have great rhythm and lyrics that put a grin on my face and make me want to stand up and dance.

The only ballad in her album, “Camouflage,” has to be the best song in the album. With just the piano and Gomez’s voice, the song is so authentic and real that it explains the whole reason for the creation of this album.

Gomez could not have thought of a better way to end her album than wrapping it up with the song “Rise,” as she so thoughtfully pointed out on Twitter.

She said, “Ultimately, it is what I’ve been forcing myself to do. It is so hard to pull yourself out of situations that you want to.”

Nonetheless, she rose. And she rose flawlessly.
