Selena Gomez's new album is ''baby dubstep''.

The 'Come and Get It' hitmaker is a huge fan of producer Skillrex - who scored her most recent movie, 'Spring Breakers' - and was influenced by his music when she recorded her debut solo album, 'Stars Dance'.

She explained: ''Skrillex scored the [soundtrack] and he was incredible - he did such a good job. I call my record, like, a baby dubstep, because Skrillex is obviously the best.''

'Stars Dance' marks Selena's first solo effort following three studio albums with her former band, Selena Gomez & the Scene, and she wanted to include songs she could enjoy performing in decades to come.

She said: ''I wanted to make sure for every single song that it was going to be something I wanted to perform for the rest of my life, which was fun for me. With this one I recorded about 25 songs total and picked 11 so it was much more a journey.''

The 20-year-old beauty also says she was heavily influenced by '90s pop stars such as Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera - who were known for their elaborate choreography in stage performances - and hopes she will be able to perform just as well on her forthcoming 'Stars Dance' tour.

She told French radio station NRJ: ''I grew up with Britney, *NSync, Christina ... and [dance] was part of performing, being an artist [meant] entertaining people. So choreographing an entire song, start to finish, was something I've always loved doing but never been able to do. With this tour I'll have a lot more dancing, so I think it brings my songs to a whole other level.''
