On Monday (November 4), the pop star received her first No. 1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 with her first solo single in years. Since it debuted on October 23, the record has leaped from No. 15 to the top spot this week. Hours after the announcement was made, the musician took to social media to celebrate her first chart-topper with those who supported her along the way.
"My first number 1! This song is so dear to my heart. I've been working so hard to make this album as honest and fun as possible while remaining vulnerable enough to share where I am in life," the 27-year-old wrote on Instagram. "I love you deeply and thank you so much for listening. I want to thank each and every person that was apart of this moment I'll never forget."

My first number 1!! This song is so dear to my heart. I’ve been working so hard to make this album as honest and fun as possible while remaining vulnerable enough to share where I am in life. I love you deeply and thank you so much for listening. I want to thank each and every person that was apart of this moment that I’ll never forget!
“Tell Me Something I Don’t Know” marked the Disney Channel alum's first-ever entry on the chart in January 2009, and she's been soaring ever since. Gomez last peaked on the Hot 100 chart with her 2015 track “Good For You” as well as “Same Old Love” the year after. With her newest accomplishment, Gomez puts an end to the 30-year wait for a Hot 100 No. 1 record by a woman after Bette Midler’s turn in 1989 with “Wind Beneath My Wings.”
Additionally, “Lose You to Love Me” signaled the long-awaited arrival of her forthcoming third studio album, which has yet been announced. Shortly after dropping the emotional breakup ballad, she followed the anthem up with the upbeat dance bop “Look At Her Now.”
In more exciting news, Gomez will deliver her first live televised performance in two years at the 2019 American Music Awards on November 24.
