Yes, you read that title correct. Back in April, Nash Country Daily reported that 27 year-old, Thomas Rhett name-dropped Selena as someone whose vocals could possibly appear on his next record. He said, “We have this girl named Selena Gomez sing on a song on the record, and she’s pretty cool.”
He explained, “It’s possible.” Rhett shared with Rare Country when asked if a new song with Selena would be featured on his new album slated to drop in September. “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.”
“I’ve actually never met Selena in person,” Thomas admitted. “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? (Laughs.) But yeah, she was so sweet and I can’t wait to meet her someday.”
So far Selena has not commented on making her collaboration with Rhett, but we can’t hope we hear this duo on the radio this fall.
