Selena Gomez Is Rumored To Be On Taylor Swift’s New Album And People Can’t Contain Their Excitement

Taylor Swift has been in musical hiding since releasing “1989” in 2014. That all changed on August 23 when the singer announced the release of her sixth studio album “Reputation,” with a single expected August 25 at 12:01 a.m. While everyone has been freaking out that Swift deleted all of her social media posts and is finally releasing new music, one rumor has piqued everyone’s interest. It is being rumored that Selena Gomez will make an appearance as Swift’s only collaboration on “Reputation.”

Taylor Swift has given us a release date for her next album “Reputation.”

After three years without new music, fans will finally get a brand new album to memorize and obsess over.

And while that is exciting news in its own right, many fans are screaming over a rumor started by gossip blogger Perez Hilton.

Hilton got everyone’s attention when he tweeted that he had insider knowledge on Swift’s single and followed it up with a rumor heard around the Twitterverse: Selena Gomez will be on the album.

The mere possibility of a Taylor Swift/Selena Gomez collab quickly spread throughout Twitter and people are here for it.

There is really no way to know whether or not Gomez will actually appear on the album until it is released but when has that stopped Twitter?

Without any verification, fans have let their emotions take over and started to think about the collab-to-be.

But, what is it going to sound like? Gomez and Swift have very different sounds when it comes to the music they create. Will Gomez conform to fit Swift’s voice for the song? Is Swift creating a new sound for her fans to love? There are soo many questions.

Some fans have no words to express their joy.

Sometimes some well placed tears is all it takes to show just how hyped you feel on the inside. Plus, “Taylor Swift ft. Selena Gomez” is probably one of the most powerful statements ever typed on Twitter.

Some fans are going so far as to call it the “biggest duet in the history of duets.”

That’s a powerful statement.

And people stepped up to offer other duets that shook the world, like Beyoncé and Shakira.

All of the songs featuring Beyoncé and Shakira should be on everyone’s playlists, tbh.

Like, how could you forget the Britney Spears ft. Madonna track that literally stopped time?

However, fans are overwhelmingly in support of this possible duet.

We might find out as soon as August 25.

Kali Uchis’ “Telepatía” is Becoming a Global Hit Thanks to TikTok

Through the power of TikTok, Kali Uchis is taking her song “Telepatía” to the top. The Colombian-American singer is sitting comfortably in the top 10 of Spotify’s Top 200 chart in the U.S. thanks to a TikTok trend.

This isn’t the first time that TikTok brought new fame to songs.

TikTok has proven to be quite the catalyst for today’s top hits. The app assisted in getting Olivia Rodrigo’s “drivers license” to the top of Billboard Hot 100 chart, where it remains. TikTok also reinvigorated interest in Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams” last year thanks to Doggface’s viral video. Now Uchis is getting her long overdue shine with “Telepatía.”

“Telepatía” is becoming a global hit thanks to the same phenomenon.

At No. 7 on the Spotify U.S. chart, “Telepatía” is the highest-charting Latin song in the country. Bad Bunny’s “Dákiti” with Jhay Cortez is the next closest Latin song at No. 14. “Telepatía” is also making waves across the globe where the song is charting on Spotify’s Viral Charts in 66 countries and in the Top Songs Charts of 32 countries.

There’s also plenty of “Telepatía” memes.

Uchis is turning the viral song’s success into strong sales and streaming. On this week’s Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart, “Telepatía” debuts at No. 10, marking her first top 10 hit on the chart. There are also memes circulating on other social media apps that are contributing to the song’s virality.

“Telepatía” is one of the key cuts on Uchis’ debut Latin album, Sin Miedo (del Amor y Otros Demonios). It’s the best example of her translating that alternative soul music that she’s known for into Spanish. The song is notably in Spanglish as Uchis sings about keeping a love connection alive from a distance. It’s timely considering this era of social distancing that we’re in during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Uchis is currently nominated for a Grammy Award. She’s up for Best Dance Recording for her feature on Kaytranada’s “10%” song.

Kehlani Dresses as Both Prom King and Queen on Cover of ‘Playboy’, Talks Feeling Comfortable in Both Gender Roles

Kehlani Dresses as Both Prom King and Queen on Cover of ‘Playboy’, Talks Feeling Comfortable in Both Gender Roles

Kehlani has long been open about the fluid nature of her gender expression. That’s why it’s exciting that the R&B star is experimenting with different facets of her personality on the most recent cover of Playboy.

In a bold move, Kehlani appears on Playboy‘s latest cover dressed in both (traditionally) women and (traditionally) men’s clothing.

And as if one Kehlani isn’t exciting enough, the magazine cover treats us to two versions of this Oakland native. On the left side of the magazine, Kehlani is dressed up as a Prom Queen, complete with a resplendent gown and a tiara. On the cover’s right side, Kehlani is dressed in Prom King drag: her tie undone, her collar open, her crown askew.

She shared the picture to her personal Instagram page with the cheeky caption: “I always wanted to date me.”

In the accompanying interview, Kehlani talks about gender identity and expression, motherhood, and owning her sexuality.

When Kehlani was asked how she defines masculinity and femininity, Kehlani got refreshingly candid. “I’ve discovered that I’ve run from a lot of femininity,” she admitted. “I was way more comfortable in a more masculine space. I feel more masculine when I am in my stillness and I’m grounded in a quiet, contemplative mode.”

She then explained that she feels “most feminine” when she’s “being the mother of my house.” (Kehlani had a baby girl named Adeya Nomi in 2019). She also explained that she “feels her femininity” when she ‘s indulging in self-care, like soaking in a flower-filled bath, or doing a hair mask.

“My femininity makes me feel soft and gentle and tender and careful in a different way than my masculinity makes me feel,” she said. “I’m trying not to let it fall into the gender norms of feminine and masculine, but for me it does a tiny bit. But I also am very fluid in both of those settings.”

Kehlani has always been open about her fluid sexuality and gender identity.

In 2018, she tweeted: “Not bi, not straight. I’m attracted to women, men, REALLY attracted to queer men, non-binary people, intersex people, trans people”.

But of course, haters on the internet accused her of “queer-baiting”–that is, pretending she’s queer to get more LGBT fans and attract attention. In an interview with The Guardian last year, she revealed why the accusation frustrates her.

“I’ve had girlfriends in front of people’s faces, right under their noses, and they weren’t famous and so nobody cared to make it public,” she said. “So they automatically assume that I must like men more than women.”
