Addressing her eager fans, Gomez shared her excitement on Instagram, stating, “I’ve noticed your requests for new music, and while my work on SG3 isn’t fully complete yet, I’ve decided to share a delightful little tune I penned a while back. It’s the perfect track to bid farewell to the summer vibes. Get ready for ‘Single Soon,’ dropping August 25th.

According to an official statement, Gomez’s intention behind the release of “Single Soon” was to provide her dedicated fans with an enjoyable track to cap off the summer, given their patient anticipation for fresh music.
The song “Single Soon,” crafted by the collaboration of Benny Blanco and Cashmere Cat, arrives following the success of Gomez’s chart-topping hit “Calm Down” alongside Rema. The latter track secured the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Global chart. Enthusiasts of Gomez’s music can secure an early spot to experience the upcoming song by pre-saving it through this link.
On Monday, there was a surge of fan speculation about an impending musical release from Gomez, triggered by the discovery of a recently launched website, illbesinglesoon.com. The website prominently displayed the phrase “Single Soon?” in striking red letters and was directly associated with Interscope Records, the label representing the accomplished “Wolves” artist.
The website’s connection to Gomez’s new music endeavor became even more apparent due to the presence of links leading to the pop star’s social media platforms at the bottom of the page. Moreover, avid supporters had the opportunity to sign up for notifications and updates on the platform.
Adding to the excitement, observant fans also noticed posters displaying the intriguing question “Single Soon?” scattered across various cities in the United States. These posters, which also featured a contact number, contributed to the growing anticipation surrounding Gomez’s forthcoming musical venture.
Enthusiasts who engaged with the provided contact number reported encountering a mysterious message that appeared to showcase Gomez’s younger sibling, Gracie Teefey, who is 10 years old. The message contained a cryptic tone and offered a snippet of what seemed to be an upcoming track.
The voice in the message conveyed, “Hello, sis. Don’t ever stress about boyfriends. Seriously.” This was trailed by the introduction of a musical piece, hinting at the artistic content that is yet to be fully revealed.
In June, Gomez provided a sneak peek of her upcoming music, leaving fans intrigued. She shared a carousel of images on Instagram, which featured a snapshot of the artist engrossed in vocal recording in front of a microphone, with a piece of paper in hand. Accompanying the photos was a reassuring caption from her: “Don’t worry, guys, it’s on its way. Even from Paris.”
As far back as February, Gomez gave insight into her musical direction during an interview with Vanity Fair. She disclosed that her forthcoming collection of songs would be both lively and genuine in nature. Expressing herself, she mentioned, “The music I’m currently working on revolves around real experiences I’m going through. It’s robust, potent, and steeped in pop. The overarching theme is centered around freedom — liberating oneself from relationships and from darkness.”
Elaborating further, she stated, “Given a choice, I might pen ballads indefinitely, but I aspire to craft music that brings smiles to people’s faces.”
Gomez’s most recent single, “My Mind & Me,” was unveiled nearly a year ago, coinciding with the release of her documentary, “Selena Gomez: My Mind & Me.”
