Rise

Songfacts®:

  • Selena Gomez closes her Revival album with this uptempo, self-empowered anthem, which she penned with the Rock Mafia duo of Tim James and Antonina Armato. The production/songwriting team have penned a number of tracks for Gomez throughout her recording career, including "Naturally," "Love You Like a Love Song" and "Do It."
  • Gomez said during the Revival listening party: "'Rise' is the perfect way for me to wrap up the album 'cause ultimately it's exactly what I've been forcing myself to do. It's so hard to pull yourself out of situations that you want to, and I think it's just a beautiful way to wrap up what I've gone through."
