Selena celebrated the achievement with an Instagram post admitting it was embarrassing but thanking fans for their support.
It’s officially out! I was a bit embarrassed asking so often for you to stream or buy my album. It felt inauthentic. Thank YOU so much for making something so personal to me be a moment I’ll never forget. All I truly desire is for you all to enjoy the music and spread the love
