Charlie Puth Teases Selena Gomez Collaboration “We Don’t Talk Anymore”

There’s a reason Selena Gomez is done talking about Justin Bieber.

Her new feature on Puth’s upcoming song, “We Don’t Talk Anymore,” couldn’t be more fitting. The two shared a preview of the song in December and again at some point after the Golden Globes aired Sunday night (Jan. 10).

“I called Selena out at some ungodly hour and was like, ‘Hey, any chance you would want to cut this?'” Puth tells Seventeen about the creation of the song. “And she came over and recorded it in like 15 minutes.”

“I wrote [’We Don’t Talk Anymore’] in Japan,” Puth told MTV News last month. “I was in my hotel room, at the Mandarin Hotel, looking out at this wonderful city from the top floor, and I called my guitarist who was in the next room and I said, ’Dude, can you come to my room really quickly and play this guitar line?’ I didn’t have a microphone, so I recorded his guitar with my iPhone, and I put it in the mix. Then, we went to the Philippines the next day, and I put the kick drum in.”

“I remember a conversation I had had with my friend,” he added. “He had just broken up with this girl, and I was like, ’So, are you going to talk to her anymore?’ And he was like, ’Nah, we don’t talk anymore.’ I was trying to cheer him up, so I did a dumb little face, and I was like, [singing] ’We don’t talk anymore.’ I was just trying to cheer him up, but it became a cool melody, and I realized that this guitar beat fit perfectly over it.”

Puth knew Gomez was the perfect candidate.

“I met up with Selena, and she went through a very public relationship, on and off, and she could just relate to the song and the lyrical sentiment,” Puth said. “I was playing the song for her, and she just started singing the second verse. I got chills. I was like, ’Oh my gosh, that sounds so real. You need to sing on it.’ And she said yes.”
