On January 16, the former Disney Channel star confessed that she was taking “desperate” measures for her album to reach No. 1. “Am I like kind of desperate for doing this now?” Selena asked her fans in reference to buying her own work. “I don't care. I don't care, because this album is so rare.”

"I told people before that, you know, it's not about numbers for me, but I would love for the most important album I've ever released to become No. 1. So, if you don't mind streaming it or listening to it on all the platforms, it would mean the absolute world to me. This is, again, something I've dreamed about for so long. But, regardless, I just hope that you guys are enjoying it and that it's something that you all can just enjoy and have. So, no worries. Either way, I'm happy," she explained.
