Selena Gomez Rare
As for Gomez, it won’t be her first collab as she collaborated with Trevor Daniel earlier this year for Past Life.
Still this year, in January, Gomez released her third studio album Rare. NME said in album review, “Rare is a beautifully confident return from one of pop’s most underrated stars and quietly defiant wrestling back of the narrative surrounding her.”
