To announce its release, Gomez took to her Instagram, explaining that although it was weird to be launching a song that is 'lighthearted' during the COVID-19 outbreak, she was hoping that the music would be a beacon for people to cling to as we all worked to get through the pandemic together.

"💖 For every purchase of the new Dance Again merch in my store, a portion of proceeds will benefit the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund," Gomez concluded in her Instagram post.

The singer has also been doing her part to help people learn the way to properly wash their hands. With the coronavirus's propensity to stick around on surfaces for an extended amount of time, it's all the more important to know how to effectively eliminate them from the hands. Gomez participated in the #SafeHands washing challenge, which teaches proper hand washing techniques.

Gomez has also chosen to help focus on the mental health aspects of the coronavirus pandemic, specifically people feeling lonely, isolated, and in some cases, depressed from losing their jobs and not having a steady form of income. To assist in eliminating those possibilities and mental health issues, she's encouraged people to foster animals during the lockdown.

Gomez personally fostered a puppy, but ultimately decided to adopt the dog as her own. In a separate Instagram post, the singer introduced her dog to the world, revealing that she had named her 'Daisy'.
