Who says exes can’t be friends? Austin Mahone surprised fans Dec. 14 by announcing the release of new music, including a song that features his ex-girlfriend, Becky G. Instead of dropping his long-awaited debut album, though, the new music is a collection of free songs wittily titled ‘This is Not the Album.’
Austin Mahone, 19, fans everywhere have been waiting patiently for the teenage heartthrob to drop his debut album. In a surprising twist, though, the singer announced Dec. 14 that he will instead be releasing a set of free songs with his new album, This is Not the Album, how clever is he?! The 19-song collection will even include a collaboration with Austin’s ex, Becky G, 18, — find out more about the new music below!
“Got a huge surprise for you guys!!! I’ve got some new music that I’m really excited for you to hear, that I’ve been working real hard on. I know the music you’ve been wanting hasn’t come yet, but I’ve been writing, producing and getting better at what I truly love to do, and thats why I made this project,” Austin said in a recent Facebook statement.
On Dec. 15, after announcing the unexpected release, Austin also uploaded a series of videos teasing each of the songs. The group rounds out with a pretty impressive list of collaborations, including songs with Sage the Gemini, Chris Brown, T-Pain, and numerous other artists. Possibly the most exciting of the guest appearances, though, is Austin’s former gal pal, Becky G.
Becky and Austin broke up back in August after dating for a few short months. Does the pair working together mean they’re giving things a second chance? Rumors have been flying that they just might be giving their relationship a go again and their new song, “Rollin,” might just be another indicator that the gossip is true.
Either way, Austin’s album is sure to be a success and is much needed to tie fans over while they wait for his debut album. What do you think HollywoodLifers, should Austin and Becky reunite for more than a song? Speak up below!
