It has become abundantly clear that Selena Gomez loves EDM! Here are all of her recent musical collaborations featuring Marshmello, Kygo, Zedd and more.
When Selena Gomez first debuted tracks with Zedd and Borgore back in 2015 we were like, “Ew who does this Disney princess think she is?” But then we realized that everyone has a right to enjoy EDM, or even throw down vocals on a track. So here are all of her top singles and remixes thus far.
Gomez and Zedd dated for three months in 2015 after running into each other in the studio. This resulted in “I Want You to Know” and the first major pop star/dubstep collaboration.
To add to the indignity there were official remixes from Yellow Claw and Borgore shortly thereafter. These included but were not limited to Selena Gomez ft A$AP Rocky “Good for You” (Yellow Claw & Cesqeaux Remix), as well as “Same Old Love” (Borgore Remix).
In 2016 Felix Cartel dropped an official remix of “Kill ‘Em With Kindness” approximately ten days after the mass shooting at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, which was eerily appropriate.
Then in late 2016 Cashmere Cat released “Trust Nobody” featuring vocals by Selena Gomez and Tory Lanez. Cashmere Cat is an EDM producer that moves into between the lines of hip hop a lot.
In 2017 we saw the music video for Kygo & Selena Gomez “It Ain’t Me.” It is currently the 14th most streamed electronic/dance music track on Billboard. Tiesto did an official remix of the song.
Gomez released a hip hop track with Gucci Mane called “Fetish” in 2017. Three months ago it was remixed by production duo Galantis. It did well on YouTube where it has nearly 4.5 million streams.
The Marshmello produced track “Wolves” debuted with a ton of press. It is currently the second most streamed electronic track on Billboard, number one being Marshmello featuring Khalid. The official music video shows Gomez at a public pool in a series of ball gowns, and one pantsuit with a matching bralette. There was also an official lyric video, vertical video and a visualizer to promote the single. The singer recently performed the tune at the 2017 American Music Awards with Marshmello.
What does the future hold for Gomez/EDM collaborations? Only time will tell. If this is a sign of anything it is that pop music is headed in electronic music’s direction.
