According to Sean McMullan, Amazon Music’s Director of Artist Product and Services:
“Fashion is an inseparable part of music and culture, and with the addition of merchandise to the Amazon Music app, we’re making it easier for artists to connect with their fans through our app. It’s long been Amazon Music’s mission to strengthen the connection between artists and fans, and today’s launch furthers that goal by uniting streaming audio, music videos, live streams, podcasts, and now merch under one roof for the first time.”Sean McMullan
Selena Gomez REVELACIÓN collection features several products from a pop star, which were inspired by a Mexico City mural commemorating her single “Baila Conmigo”: there are t-shirts, hoodies, and hats available for purchase only on Amazon Music.
As Selena claims:
“I wanted to offer my fans something special for the release of REVELACIÓN. That’s why I worked to develop a beautiful, new collection of exclusive merch for Amazon Music. I hope you enjoy what I’ve put together.”Selena Gomez
