Selena Gomez & Zedd Hit The Studio
Is Selena cooking up her own "Break Free" with the dance superstar?
Selena Gomez is hard at work on the follow-up to her 2013 solo album Stars Dance, which became her first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart -- and although she slowed things down on her current Top 20 hit "The Heart Wants What It Wants," Gomez may be cooking up more scorching dance tunes, with the help of EDM genius Zedd.
According to Idolator, Gomez posted a photo of herself on Instagram on Thursday night (Jan. 8) with the caption, "Studio flow tho @zedd," before quickly removing the image. Ravenous Selenators caught the post before it was deleted, however, and Zedd confirmed the Thursday night meet-up by posting a photo of the pop star -- blowing a kiss to a bobblehead, no less! -- on his own account.
When the 25-year-old producer is not producing hits like "G.U.Y." for Lady Gaga or "Break Free" for Ariana Grande, Zedd has scored hits under his own name, with songs like "Clarity" (featuring Foxes) and "Stay The Night" (with Paramore's Hayley Williams). Also worth noting: Zedd co-produced "Beauty and a Beat," a Top 10 hit for Gomez's ex, Justin Bieber.
"The Heart Wants What It Wants," featured on Gomez's greatest-hits package For You, slips one spot to No. 14 on this week's Hot 100 chart, after peaking at No. 6. Gomez's next album will be her first for Interscope Records, after the singer parted from her longtime home of Hollywood Records last year.
