In fact, she had her fans in mind for every decision and detail in the album process.
"[I named the album after my single] because it's the name of the first song I recorded to put on the record. I feel like that song has a lot of meaning, and it also kind of was the start of what I wanted to base all the other songs around," she told MTV News. "I mean, even down from putting the track listing and numbering it, I wanted to make sure I envisioned [fans] putting it in their car or putting it on their iPod and how I wanted them to listen to the record."
Many of the songs on A Year Without Rain are inspired by Selena's dedicated fans. "I wanted to make sure it made people feel good, but I also dedicated a couple songs to my fans, because there were moments onstage that I wish I could give to them, because they mean so much to me," she explained. "So there are songs like 'Intuition' and 'Spotlight' that are specifically for my fans and a way of saying, 'I get to live such a great life, but you guys deserve the spotlight as much as I do.' "
Gomez said the album can be enjoyed at home or on the dance floor. "I think you can see that it's more of a dance/techno vibe," she said. "I wanted it to be a feel-good record."
