Selena Gomez's music career began in 2007 when she sang the theme song for her Disney show, Wizards of Waverly Place. Hollywood Records signed her up as one of their singers in 2008, after she shot to fame as a teen icon. Gomez was part of a pop-rock band called Selena Gomez and The Scene. At the time, Gomez's parents, Mandy, and Brian Teefey, were her managers.

California-based Interscope Records signed Selena Gomez as one of their singers in 2014, which the singer revealed through an Instagram post. In her Instagram post, Selena stated that she was "officially an Interscope artist."

The record label is associated with several artists, including Billie Eilish, Olivia Rodrigo, Playboi Carti, Kendrick Lamar, Lana Del Rey, Maroon 5, and BLACKPINK, among others.

"Guess who's officially an Interscope artist :) #thisiswhatdreamsaremadeof," she wrote.

Selena Gomez has been an Interscope Records artist since 2014

The year 2014 was an important one for Selena Gomez. The Only Murders in the Building star, who was 22 at the time, decided to stop working with her parents as her managers so she could work with professional managers.

She signed with Interscope Records and parted ways with Hollywood Records. Under Interscope, the singer released three studio albums, including Revival (2015), Rare (2020), and the Spanish-language EP Revelación (2021).

Jimmy Iovine and Ted Field founded Interscope Records in 1989, and it has since become one of the biggest record labels in the industry. A part of the Universal Music Group, Interscope Records is the label that has signed several other major stars, apart from Selena.

John Janick was appointed as the CEO of Interscope in 2014 and has played a significant role in Selena's musical career. The Heart Wants What It Wants singer shared a photo on Instagram in October 2019, expressing gratitude towards the people she worked with at Interscope. In the picture, the singer was seen sitting at Interscope's studio with several plaques around her. She revealed that the label had gifted her "plaques from the past few years."

Gomez appeared on the cover of Billboard's No. 1 issue, along with stars like Billie Eilish, John Janick, DaBABY. The Rare singer posted a carousel on her Instagram and wrote a few words about John, noting that she was excited and proud of the hard work he does for his company and artists.

"John - I couldn’t be more excited and proud of all the hard work that you do for your company and for your artists. Signing with you is one of the best decisions I’ve made," she wrote.

Apart from Selena Gomez, over the years, Interscope Records has worked with an impressive line of artists, including Lady Gaga and Eminem, among others.

Lady Gaga is known for her unconventional music and style and is the only female artist to achieve four singles that each sold at least 10 million copies globally. Under Interscope, she released various albums, including The Fame and Born This Way.

Eminem is also one of Interscope's artists, and is often known as the "rap king." He released albums like The Marshall Mathers LP and The Eminem Show with Interscope.

BLACKPINK, the iconic K-pop band, expanded their fan base internationally with Interscope. Selena Gomez and BLACKPINK also collaborated on their hit single, Ice Cream, which was released during the COVID-19 lockdown.

Since its inception, Interscope Records has grown bigger than ever and has worked with multiple award-winning artists, including Selena Gomez. The record label has been instrumental in Selena and other musicians's evolution as artists over the years.
