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.”

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.
There's also a a duet with @SelenaGomez rumored for Taylor's new album – and it's said to be the only collab she does for the record.

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.
I'M SHAKING OMG

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.”
IF TAYLOR SWIFT FT. SELENA GOMEZ RUMORS ARE TRUE THEN PREPARE YOURSELF FOR THE BIGGEST DUET IN THE HISTORY OF DUESTS!!!

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?
