“Where are your friends now, baby? Aren’t they the ones supposed to be there for you?”

On September 29, 2009, the debut album by the band Selena Gomez & the Scene, titled Kiss & Tell, was released through Hollywood Records. Gomez had been a Disney Channel star on The Wizards of Waverly Place since 2007, and had sung the theme song for the show; she also started making appearances on various soundtrack albums, which led to a record contract in 2008 with Disney-owned Hollywood Records. Wanting to be part of a band rather than have a solo career, the band members were quickly assembled, with Gomez naming them The Scene in a tongue-in-cheek way of teasing her critics. The album released two promotional singles, “Falling Down” and “Naturally,” with varying degrees of success. The album received mixed to positive reviews from critics, peaking at number nine on the Billboard 200.
