But it was her newer post on Thursday of herself posing chin up in front of a baroque backdrop with a lace wall between hers and the camera that had fans really thinking she could be teasing new music.
"Rose colored glasses all distorted," she captioned the moody black-and-white shot.
Around the same time as her newest post, Gomez also shared a shot of the digital Times Square billboard that reads, "Alexa, follow Selena Gomez," linking to an Amazon Music streaming service for her old tracks.
These aren't the only signs that possible new music is on the way from the singer.
"Selena has been working on new music and plans to release some this year. The new music is going to be a different side of Selena and very personal," the source said. "Selena has gone through a lot over the years and is ready to share it with the world."
