"All I truly desire is for you all to enjoy the music and spread the love," she added.
Singers Brooke Ligertwood and Goldn and producer and talent manager Aleen Keshishian showed their support for Gomez in the comments.
"We love you so much! Cheering you on in every season, always," Ligertwood wrote.
"ayeeeee let's goooo well deserved sel," Goldn added.
"Amazing album Sel! So happy for u!" Keshishian said.
Rare is Gomez's third album to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, following Revival (2015) and Stars Dance (2013). Gomez discussed her personal new songs in an interview with KISS FM UK in December.
