Gomez also told Lowe that she thinks she “sings better in Spanish” than English. “That was something I discovered. It was a lot of work, and look, you cannot mispronounce anything,” she said. “It is something that needed to be precise, and needed to be respected by the audience I’m going to release this for.”
She continued, “Of course I want everyone to enjoy the music, but I am targeting my fan base. I’m targeting my heritage, and I couldn’t be more excited.”As for what “De Una Vez” is about, the song is all about how Gomez is “stronger alone” after overcoming heartbreak. “It doesn’t hurt like before, no / The wound of your love healed,” she sings, according to an English translation by Genius. “Once and for all / I’m stronger alone / It’s just that I do not regret the past / I know that time by your side cut my wings / But now this chest is bulletproof.”

'No one can dare ask why': What it's like to live in a town where everything is controlled by the Taliban
Women are banned from leaving their homes without a male companion and nobody dares ask about schooling for girls living here. Taxation, that's sometimes fair and often on the rich but compulsory, can be prey to rival taxmen and lead to beatings and imprisonment for non-payment. Justice is dispensed in mobile courts with adulterers jailed or killed and some reoffending thieves hanged in public. Bread, clothing and even the occasional smartphone are gifts for fighters.
