After releasing her first Spanish-language EP Revelación in March — with which she became the first woman to debut at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart since 2017 — Selena Gomez is placing all her bets once again on a new Spanish song, “999.” This time, it’s in collaboration with Colombian singer-songwriter Camilo.
Produced by Edgar Barrera and penned by Camilo, “999” — a rhythmic pop song that is a ballad at its core — marks the first collaboration between the Mexican-American artist and the Colombian singer/songwriter. The track, which drops alongside a music video directed by Sophie Muller, finds the two artists trading verses about true love over a sparse drumbeat. “I don’t want to go slow. I know you think of me … If you want to go at 1,000, I’m at 999,” they sing.
“Camilo is a fantastic songwriter and singer who proudly wears his heart on his sleeve which is something we connected on immediately,” Gomez said about Camilo. “I couldn’t have been more excited to collaborate with him.”
