Selena Gomez's musical journey has spanned various genres in the last four years.
Debuting today, Stars Dance is her fourth record overall, having previously released three albums with her band. Gomez stated that the record was influenced by artists including Britney Spears and Skrillex. Musically, Stars Dance is an electronic album rooted in pop, dance and dubstep, while heavily incorporating elements of techno, disco and teen pop.
"Selena Gomez has carved out a pretty nice career as a pop singer over the course of a run of well-produced, well-written, and very well-sung albums that haven't always been full of smash hits, but have an overall level of quality that pushed her to the head of the Disney class," says Tim Sendra of AllMusic.com.
"Thanks to the strong songs, Selena's reliably strong vocals, and the variety of sounds, it adds up to be another fine entry in her catalog and just another example of why Selena Gomez is one of the best pop stars making music in 2013."
Stars Dance is available on all outlets now.
As an added bonus, Gomez will appear on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno this evening at 11:35/10:35c.
