Selena Gomez


"Stars Dance"

Hollywood Records


Release date: July 23


Gomez grows up considerably on her first proper solo album, stepping away from the pop-rock of the Scene and into clubland groove on tracks like “Slow Down,” “Undercover” and “B.E.A.T.” Inquiring minds will dig into the album, listening closely to “Love Will Remember,” Gomez’s wistful rumination on her relationship with Justin Bieber. —Gary Graff
