This Is Why Fans Think a Taylor Swift + Selena Gomez Collaboration Is Happening
Taylor Swift’s new song “Call It What You Want” might be her most revealing tune yet, but the latest potential Swift reveal was NOT sparked by the singer’s ever-honest lyrics. Instead, the man at the helm of the “…Ready for It?” singer’s label may have accidentally revealed that Swift is about to release a collaboration with her longtime pal, Selena Gomez.
Fans of both A-list performers have been eager to hear a duet from the IRL friends for as long as we can remember. But besides showing up on the red carpet together and in each other’s vids (Gomez made a famous appearance in Swift’s “Bad Blood” video and Swift, in turn, appeared (sort of) in her friend’s “Bad Liar” video), there has been no hint of any kind of professional project coming out from the pair. That is, until now.
Scott Borchetta, the president and CEO of Swift’s label Big Machine, sent out a rather interesting message via social media earlier this week that got the rumor mill buzzing. “This is so good…” he tweeted, sharing the link to Target’s commercial for Swift’s upcoming Reputation album (which drops this Friday, November 10).
The ad lets fans know that if they head to the superstore, they’ll be able to nab the new album along with magazine bundles that include “bonus content that’s unique to each volume, including poetry written by Taylor, personal photos, paintings, handwritten lyrics & more.”

However, it’s the people that he tagged in the message that had fans freaking out. Along with Swift and his company, Borchetta tagged none other than…
Fans were quick to jump on this detail, and some have taken it as a sign that music from the pair is on the way:

While we can’t confirm if a collaboration is indeed on the way, we’re certainly loving the idea, which means that it should probably (no, definitely!) happen sooner rather than later. Let’s hope that it might even happen this week!
