Along with this collaboration, Gomez has been keeping busy with a couple of other projects. On August 13th, her new show Selena + Chef will be premiering on HBO Max; this show features Gomez as she enhances her cooking skills with the help of professional chefs from her own home while in quarantine. She also served as the executive producer for the upcoming teen comedy movie This Is The Year alongside her Wizards of Waverly Place co-star David Henrie, who directed and stars in the film. The new film will be Henrie’s directorial debut.
This Is The Year will premiere on August 28th, which is the same day that Gomez’s collaboration with BLACKPINK will be released.
