After having (im)patiently waited for what feels like a decade, we finally have a new Spanish banger by our queen Selena Gomez in collaboration with Camilo! We are massive REVELACIÓN stans, so ‘999’ is our new best friend and will be yours too. Listen to the bop right here!
As a soulful, pop track, ‘999’ is a vocal serve. There is just something about Selena’s Spanish spins that serve as a major serotonin boost. Combine that with the one-of-its-kind Camilo tune with sick beats, and we have a summer bop! Selena Gomez and Camilo vocally blend and harmonize perfectly in the song, making us wanna ‘Baila Conmigo’ with them. We just cannot seem to resist swaying our hips and slow wobbling our heads to ‘999.’ Produced by Edgar Barrera along with A.C. and Camilo, the song sounds immensely colorful and dreamy. At one moment, you could be thinking flowers and sunshine and dancing in your kitchen the next.
Camilo seems to agree:
Working with Selena Gomez is a tremendous honor and a huge moment in my career. From the beginning, ‘999’ was written based on the color of her voice, and it wouldn’t have existed if it wasn’t for the dream of this collaboration. I’m very excited, and it means so much to me to have this beautiful song with an artist whom I respect and have followed for so long.Camilo on his first collaboration with Selena Gomez.
We Have Watched The Music Video ‘999’ Times
The ‘999’ music video is a visual treat, matching the contagious rhythm of the track.

It brings to life everything we had imagined while listening to the song. Talk about color, flowers, sunshine – we get it all, and it brings back memories from Rare. Selena’s and Camilo’s performance is timeless as always, showing a real connection with the lyrics, decorated by dreamy and natural settings. Watch the music video below:
