About Revival

Revival is the second studio album by American singer Selena Gomez. It was released on October 9, 2015, by Interscope and Polydor Records. Preparation for the album began in 2014, when Gomez left her previous label Hollywood Records. The record was influenced by a range of artists, particularly Christina Aguilera and her album Stripped (2002). Gomez co-wrote twelve of its sixteen tracks. The album reflects her journey since 2013, including the media scrutiny of her personal life. As executive producers, Gomez, Danny D, and Tim Blacksmith collaborated with Hit-Boy, Rock Mafia, and Stargate to achieve Gomez's new desired sound. Their efforts resulted in a primarily pop record, showcasing dance-pop and midtempo electropop, that is connected by a tropical beach sound with lyrics that discuss love and confidence. Critics listed Revival on several year-end lists of best albums. The record debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 with first-week earnings of 117,000 units, of which 85,000 were pure album sales. In doing so, it became Gomez's second consecutive number-one album, after Stars Dance (2013). The album also charted within the top ten of twenty territories, including Canada, Brazil, France, Mexico and Australia. It was certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), denoting one million album-equivalent units (including albums sales, streaming and track-equivalent units) sold in the United States. With its singles "Good for You" (featuring rapper A$AP Rocky) and "Same Old Love" both reaching number five and "Hands to Myself" charting at number seven on the Billboard Hot 100, Revival is further distinguished as Gomez's first record to house multiple top 10 singles in the United States; all of which became her first three number-one singles on the Mainstream Top 40 chart. To promote the album, Gomez performed the songs in several televised appearances and embarked on her Revival Tour in May 2016, which visited North America, Asia and Oceania. However, for health reasons, it was canceled in August 2016.
