Selena Gomez’s forthcoming studio album is said to feature written songs from the singer herself, following reports claiming Taylor Swift has jumped on board to perfect the record. According to several outlets, despite being caught up with her world tour rehearsals, Swift still managed to find time in hopes to give her some advice when it comes to songwriting. Gomez’s new album is backed by Swift who will help her pal write heartbreaking songs about her exes, it has been revealed.
It is believed that Swift approached her pal on the idea of collaborating together. Having seen how much the former Disney Channel star has gone through in recent years, the ‘Blank Space’ singer wants Gomez to write about her pain and form a connection with her fans on an emotional level. It has not been hard finding Gomez caught up in some kind of scandal in recent years, having famously checked into rehab in 2014 for an alleged addiction to prescription drugs and alcohol.
Sources at the time claimed that the Hollywood star had been going through so much following her break-up from Justin Bieber, that she broke down and needed to take a much-needed break. Around the time Gomez checked into rehab, insiders alleged how Bieber was having a string of affairs with several girls behind the 22-year-old’s back, resulting in a very painful breakup which supposedly ended up leading to her drinking. Swift wants to work with Gomez on her new album, stressing the importance of being able to share pain and heartbreak with the world and letting people know the real Gomez.
Swift, who has been close pals with the What the Heart Wants singer for years, was extremely worried during the time her friend ended up seeking help in rehab. Fortunately enough, Gomez managed to find herself again and has bounced back — she is said to be in a much happier place where the words ‘Justin Bieber’ do not even exist. However, with it already being reported that the Wizards of Waverly Place star is wanting to make her forthcoming album the most personal yet, Swift only thinks it is right that nobody pens the songs but her.
Swift is famously known for writing all of her own songs. Having gone through multiple breakups to famous Hollywood stars, the 25-year-old can definitely relate to some of the situations Gomez has been in. Instead of having another songwriter come in and write songs for her, Swift is destined to get her BFF to write her own music — it makes the music sound so much more sincere, she told the songstress when the idea was first brought up. “She just suggested a few things that helped her along the way and now Selena has incorporated them into her music,” a source revealed.
The insider then continued to add that the 22-year-old has been sending some of her work over to Swift and her beau, Calvin Harris to see what they think of the tracks that have been penned so far. Harris is confident that Swift’s new album will be her biggest to date, after being left more than just impressed when he heard some of the demos Gomez had recorded. It goes without saying that the album is still in early stages with no actual release date lined up just yet. However, with the news that Swift is backing the project and helping her pal be the best artist she can be, the wait will most likely be worth it. Gomez and Swift working together on this album to write heartbreak songs will definitely make their fans happy.
