With his album about to drop, her fans clamoring to hear more music and their relationship going so well, there’s never been a better time for Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez to get in the studio together!
Of course I got excited when I saw Justin Bieber and One Direction were working in the studio together this week. However, I have to admit I’d way rather hear a collaboration between the Biebs and the love of his teen life, Selena Gomez, right now. Wouldn’t that be the best surprise ever?
Maybe Justin, 17, and Selena, 19, have already recorded together and it’s the best kept secret in the biz, but I have a feeling we would have caught wind of it right about now. (Our spies run deep…) I know they’ve both admitted there might be a collaboration somewhere down the line, but it’s never been with much conviction. It seems like they’ve both been told to say, “Maybe someday, but Selena’s working on her acting right now.”
That said, I love Selena’s music. She may not be a musical prodigy, like Justin, but her tunes are catchy and great for the dance floor. Since she dropped her last album, When the Sun Goes Down, last year, I’ve been chomping at the bit for more! Even though she’s busy at work on her new movies, like Spring Breakers, it wouldn’t take much for her to visit Justin in the studio and crank out a single that would drop this spring, or even over the summer.
The beauty of a duet between Selena and Justin right now is that neither of them need each other. They’ve each been widely successful on their own, so it neither one would be doing a courtesy for the other. A song would simply be a treat for their fans (to whom they are both so dedicated).
Also, as much as I want to see Jelena last forever, it’s unlikely they’ll be together for the long haul. (After all, they are each other’s first loves and only teenagers.) Thus, they should take advantage of their love while it’s still hot and young and fresh — this is the time to do it! Justin doesn’t even need to put it on his upcoming album, Believe — it could be a bonus track!
Justin, Selena — if you’re reading this, please consider creating a duet ASAP. Your fans would go nuts and it’d be the perfect dance song for summer 2012!
