"999" is the title of Selena Gomez and Camilo's next song, which will be released on Friday, Aug. 27, according to the artists' publicists.
This will be Selena's first track since March, when she released Revelación, her first Spanish EP.
After facing several criticisms for her musical style and lack of consistency with music, Gomez said she wanted to quit. However, in her exclusive interview with ELLE magazine, she mentioned that she doesn't think she will stop making music and that she is giving "one last try" to her passion for performing songs.
On the other hand, Camilo, who is famous for winning Colombia's X Factor in 2007 and being married to Evaluna Montaner, expressed through on social media how honored he feels to collaborate with Gomez.
"I love this song and I admire you so much," wrote the artist on Twitter, quoting a previous Tweet from the American artist.
The unexpected collaboration has made 'La Tribu' (Camilo's fans) euphoric, since several years ago, Camilo expressed a desire to collaborate with Gomez.
"Be careful what you dream about because you run the risk it might come true (...) I'm afraid to dream because it's likely that I'll make it. To tell you, I would be very excited to do a song with Selena Gomez, for example. I love the way she performs," said the Colombian.
To increase the expectations of fans, Gomez posted a phrase on her Twitter that could be part of the lyrics of the new song: "1.000 I know you think of me and your heart moves...if you want to go to 1.000...". Camilo answered by writing "999...I'm at 999!"
In July, Camilo collaborated with Shawn Mendes for the English remix of his song 'KESI.' With the same song, the artist became the official voice of La Liga and from now on, all the promotional pieces from the league will carry the rhythm of the Colombian.
Another Camilo collaboration of great importance was with Shakira, who gave her special stamp to the remix of "Tutu," a song they perform alongside Puerto Rican Pedro Capó.
For Gomez, rumors are swirling about a future collboration with Ariana Grande.
