Is Selena Gomez the next Jennifer Lopez?

With her singing, dancing, and acting chops, one producer seems to think so.

"Her album's really cool. It's a really strong dance record and it's really cool actually," Gomez's collaborator Jason Evigan told MTV News. "I think it's going to take her to the next level too. All the stuff I've heard has been really, really cool. She's got some really cool like ethnic influence, kind of tribally dance drums and stuff like that. I kind of feel she's going to be like a new J.Lo kind of thing."

Gomez may already be upstaging Lopez as Evigan added Gomez was able to nab a coveted single, "Save the Day," for her upcoming album. "Jennifer Lopez wanted [it] really badly. It's, like, real. It's, like, really cool [and] up-tempo. It's about like kind of '[Let's] dance all night. Let's save the day. Let's go into the next day. Let's keep it going all night' type of thing."

Gomez recently released a new single, "Come & Get It." Fans were so excited about the track that they crashed Ryan Seacrest's website, where the song was streaming.

Gomez is set to release a solo album this summer.
