There isnt definite proofthis is happening, so dont get too excited yet. Like I said, its just rumors. But the internet does have some #receipts.
The rumors came about when fans happened upon producer, songwriter, and singer Max Martins Wikipedia page. His discography showed Selenas upcoming song In HerElement as part of his recent work. Innocent enough, right?
The song also features Nicki Minaj,Julius Michaels, Justin Tranter, and Ryan Tedder as songwriters. Nicki Minaj! How cool!
But wait, theres more.
The discography listed The Weeknd as a featured artist on the track. FEATURED ARTIST. AS IN, HELL BE SINGING.
As all of our high school teachers hammered into our brains, Wikipedia is not a valid source. *twitches while having painful freshman year English flashbacks* So, this might have just been someone asshole making sh*tup.
The caption on the page has since been deleted, but screenshots never die. This is the since-deleted caption:
The caption reads In Her Element (featuring The Weeknd) then lists Selena Gomez, Julia Michaels, Justin Tranter, Ryan Tedder, and Nicki Minaj in the box next to it. It also says the title of her upcoming album is
Selena has been seen at a lot of The Weekndstour stops. You could take that as her just being a good girlfriend. But now, with this new info in the mix, its totally possible that one of the reasons shes been to so many of his shows is because theyre working on a single when hes not performing.
Gomezs latest single was Bad Liar, which dropped last week. And its pretty much about The Weeknd.
The lyrics go,
I was walking down the street the other day
Trying to distract myself
Then I see your face
Ooh, you got someone else
Tryna play it coy
Tryna make it disappear
But just like the battle of Troy
Theres nothing subtle here
This sounds like someone whos super into their new boyfriend, if you ask me.
Only time will tell if Selena Gomez and The Weeknd will collab on new music together, but in the meantime, Im going to assume that the answer is yes. Were most likely going to hear The Weeknd crooning on In Her Element.
