'Baila Conmigo' literally means 'dance with me' and the lyrics of the single follow suit. In the chorus, Selena and Rauw trade flirtatious lines. They sing: "Dance, dance, dance with me / Dance, dance, dance and I'll follow you / Move, come get loose," and "Kiss me, just once / That way I'll have a reason to see you again." It's basically all about flirting on the dancefloor.

'Baila Conmigo' joins 'De Una Vez' as the second taste of Selena's highly anticipated Revelacíon EP. She hasn't yet said if there will be any more collabs on the project but, speaking to Zane Lowe on Apple Music, she explained: "This has been something I've wanted to do for 10 years, working on a Spanish project, because I'm so, so proud of my heritage."

Check out the full Baila Conmigo translation below.

Selena then continued: "And it happened, and I feel like it's the perfect timing. Just with all the division in the world, there's something about Latin music that globally just makes people feel things, you know?"

We can't wait to hear what else she has recorded but, until then, we'll be streaming 'De Una Vez' and 'Baila Conmigo' on repeat.

Selena Gomez - 'Baila Conmigo': English Translation

INTRO: Rauw Alejandro & Selena Gomez
Baby, I don't know if you speak any Spanish
If you understand when I say "My love"
Making love without understanding each other is better
We just have to like each other
You want me to fall into temptation
Look what state you put me in
That accent that you have
I don't understand a lot, but come here

CHORUS: Selena Gomez & Rauw Alejandro
Dance, dance, dance with me
Dance, dance, dance and I'll follow you
Move, come get loose
Don't leave me without making me want to come back

So dance, dance, dancе with me
Dance, dance, dancе, I'll follow you

Kiss me, just once
So I'll have a reason to see you again (Rauw)

VERSE 1: Rauw Alejandro & Selena Gomez
Sincerely, let's let this flow, Don't keep thinking about it
We have the whole night for you to teach me face to face
Everything that you feel
Smells to me like there's nothing innocent about you (Yah, yah)
How do I tell you I don't want to talk about love?
That if it's with you, I have to think better
Chill out, leave it like that, I want to stay here
Stick around, come to me, stick around, come to me

CHORUS: Selena Gomez & Rauw Alejandro
Dance, dance, dance with me
Dance, dance, dance and I'll follow you
Move, come get loose
Don't leave me without making me want to come back

So dance, dance, dance with me
Dance, dance, dance, I'll follow you

Kiss me, just once
So I'll have a reason to see you again (¡Yah!)

VERSE 2: Rauw Alejandro
I'm going to leave you my number
You just have to call when you miss me
I'll go there (Woo)
Baby, even if it's far from me, woah-oh
The girl's from a different city (Yah), but she likes my flow
I was curious and she stole a kiss from me
We don't have to talk to each other (Ayy)
If with looking we understand each other, yeah (Yah)

CHORUS: Selena Gomez & Rauw Alejandro, Both
I don't understand a lot, but dance, dance, dance with me
Dance, dance, dance and I'll follow you
Move, come get loose
Don't leave me without making me want to come back
So
dance, dance, dance with me
Dance, dance, dance, I'll follow you
Kiss me, just once
That way I'll have a reason to see you again (Eh)
