When Selena Gomez stopped by the Billboard Pop Shop Podcast, we played a fishbowl Q&A game where we quizzed her on everything from her first concert (Britney Spears) and favorite album (Christina Aguilera’s Stripped) to what musician she’d like to work with (Drake). She also teased listeners with a tiny preview of what we’ll see on her upcoming tour. Listen to Gomez’s chat on the show below (skip to 31:14 to hear Gomez):

The pop singer’s appearance on the show came during the release week of her latest album, Revival, which arrived Oct. 9. The set was led by the single “Good for You,” which became her highest-charting single ever on the Billboard Hot 100, reaching No. 5.

On the podcast, Gomez is enthusiastic about Drake, saying “I love him,” but jokes that “he has not hit me up.”

When asked about what musical instruments she plays, Gomez talked about her fondness for the piano and how she wishes she “was better at it.” The entertainer says: “I’m gonna play it on the next tour, which I’m really stoked about because I’ve never actually been able to do that.”
