Born in Grand Prairie, Texas, and named after “Dreaming of You” singer Selena, the Wizards of Waverly Place and Spring Breakers actress Selena Gomez has scored four top-10 LPs and gone four times platinum with “Love You Like a Love Song,” all before turning 22. This year’s “Come & Get It,” the lead single from the chart-topping Stars Dance, meanwhile, has reached double platinum, its stomping dance beat and Bollywood sample representative of an album that includes a handful of possible club hits and a Buju Banton vocal interpolation somewhere in between. Last time Gomez headlined a show in these parts, she was relegated to the suburbs, playing the PNC Arts Center way out in Jersey. Tonight, she comes to the Barclays Center with X Factor boy band Emblem3—this generation’s LFO. With Christina Grimmie.
