AceShowbiz – Selena Gomez is going all out in offering some relief amid the coronavirus crisis. Around a week after she provided Cedars-Sinai Medical Center’s doctors and nurses with masks and ventilators, the “Lose You to Love Me” hitmaker announced that she will donate a portion of proceeds from the sales of “Rare” deluxe version.
On Monday, April 6, the 27-year-old singer/actress announced that the deluxe version of her 2020 album will come out on April 9. Along with the revelation, she made public her pledge to personally donate to the Plus 1 COVID-19 relief fund as well as her plan to donate “$1 of every order in my official store to the fund starting now.”
In her announcement, the former Disney sweetheart noted that the deluxe version of “Rare” will include three new tracks, “Boyfriend”, “She” and “Souvenir”. About “Boyfriend” in particular, she explained, “It’s a lighthearted song about falling down and getting back up time and time again in love, but also knowing that you don’t need anyone other than yourself to be happy.”
While “excited” to share “Boyfriend” with her fans, the ex-girlfriend of Justin Bieber noted that romantic relationship is the last thing on her mind amid the coronavirus crisis. “We wrote it long before our current crisis, but in the context of today, I want to be clear that a boyfriend is nowhere near the top of my list of priorities,” she stated. “Just like the rest of the world, I’m praying for safety, unity and recovery during this pandemic.”
The “Who Says” hitmaker went on to encourage her followers to take part in helping those in need amid the pandemic. In the caption of her post, she directed fans and followers alike to her bio to “learn more about how to donate to the PLUS1 COVID-19 Fund.”
Back on March 31, Selena took to Twitter to reveal her commitment to the Los Angeles hospital where she underwent a kidney transplant. “So thankful for every single medical professional who is putting their health on the line to take care of others,” she tweeted. “I’m donating to @CedarsSinai as they are low on masks and ventilators. They’ve taken such good care of me so it’s my turn to show my gratitude.”
