Selena Gomez – On New Charlie Puth Song

Selena Gomez - On New Charlie Puth Song

Selena Gomez, the twenty-three year old American actress and singer who began her music career fronting the band The Scene in 2009, makes a guest appearance on the new Charlie Puth single. The track, We Don’t Talk Anymore, is taken from his imminent debut album Nine Track Mind.

In a recent interview Charlie Puth has revealed that he recorded Gomez’s vocals for the track in a rather unusual location:

‘I produced it out in Japan and I wanted to make a record that has that international type feel to it, Selena came on to it, and it completed it all. I’m good friends with her now, and we talked about wanting to collaborate, and I was finishing the song, and I was like, “Wouldn’t it be cool if you sang the second verse?” And that’s really how it happened. She came over; she recorded it. I didn’t even have a studio set up; she recorded it in my closet, and it really added a lot to the record.’

Charlie Puth, who will be hoping that the track replicates the success of last year’s hit song Marvin Gaye (his UK chart-topping duet with Meghan Trainor), also disclosed to MTV News that he believes Selena Gomez’s past relationship troubles gave her an understanding of the song’s message:

‘I met up with Selena and she went through a very public relationship, on and off, and she could just relate to the song and the lyrical sentiment. I was playing the song for her, and she just started singing the second verse. I got chills. I was like, “Oh my gosh, that sounds so real. You need to sing on it.” And she said yes.’

Nine Track Mind is due for release tomorrow (29th January).
