While we patiently await the release of the rumored Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake duet, there is another potential collab that has us excited AF — Selena Gomez and Eminem. The 25-year-old singer revealed in a recent Twitter Q&A that she would love the opportunity to get in the studio with Slim Shady.
When a fan asked Selena who her “dream collaboration” is, the Disney Channel alum was quick to reply, “Eminem!” TBH, we can’t think of anything more perfect than a song by Sel, featuring the “Lose Yourself” rapper. To learn more about Selena, check out the video below!
As fans are well aware, both artists have crossed genres before. While Selena has worked with other MCs such as Gucci Mane and A$AP Rocky, Eminem has churned out hits with pop superstars such as Rihanna and Pink. Selena previously opened up about her love for the hip-hop visionary ahead of his performance at the 2011 Grammys.
“For me, I think that he’s so free with himself. I think that music is an awesome way to express yourself. When he goes on stage, when he comes to events like this, you never see him being all stiff and cool,” she told MTV News at the time. “He’s just, like, in a hoodie, goes on and performs. And he loves what he does and I love that.”
During her chat with the outlet, Selena also said that she’d of course love to work with Eminem, but worried that she wasn’t “cool enough” and didn’t have enough “street cred for that.” Well, Selena, we think you’ve definitely got what it takes to impress Em these days!
