The pop and country worlds are about to collide in a major way!
Selena Gomez and Thomas Rhett have officially teamed up and the country superstar confirmed the news. However, fans may not ever be able to hear what has been recorded. Thomas spoke with Rare Country and said of their collaboration, "It's possible. Anytime the country world melts into the pop world, it's an interesting conversation. A lot of things need to go correct for it to work out. But yes, Selena did sing a song of mine. It's still sort of up in the air if it's going to actually make the record."
Okay, so to be clear, the record isn't exactly made yet. But, there is a line of communication open between Thomas and Selena and she has already sung on one of his tracks. But, Thomas was quick to point out that he knows what type of artist Selena is and how big she has become.
The funny thing about all of this is that he hasn't even met her yet but was completely blown away by her personality, her kindness and willingness to give country music a go!
He said, "I've only been able to talk to her over the phone, but I was blown away just how super nice and respectful [she was], because I was terrified to talk to her, especially about the song. Like, I was scared to say, 'Maybe if you try this?' to the biggest superstar that literally exists in this world and I'm just me?" But yeah, she was so sweet and I can't wait to meet her someday."
Aww! Selena isn't new to the life of a country singer. Back at the beginning of the year, way before she was involved with The Weeknd, she was spotted getting cozy with the country cutie Chris Lane. Selena has been a fan of his for a really long time and once said that one of his songs, "Fix" was her favorite at the moment.
He responded with excitement, of course, saying, "I saw a whole bunch of people retweeting that. That was so cool, I’m a huge fan of hers. That was an awesome shout out, I’ll take it!"
It looks like Thomas may have just stolen Chris' idea! Our fingers are crossed that Thomas and Selena's collaboration makes it onto the airwaves because they would make for something super special. If you're excited, can you imagine how excited her bestie Taylor Swift would be?!
