Is Selena Gomez Working With Benny Blanco & Murda Beatz?
Selena Gomez finally updated her iconic Instagram account a couple of days ago after taking an extended break to focus on her physical and mental health. The post didn’t give too much away, but the comments have sparked speculation about potential collaborators. Let’s start with Canadian producer Murda Beatz (also signed to Interscope), who responded with a quartet of star emojis. His glittering production discography includes Drake’s chart-topping “Nice For What” and Nicki Minaj’s “No Frauds.”
Could Murda be one of the heavyweights shaping SG2? It’s not like he’s a stranger to pop, having recently produced Lauren Jauregui’s very-good “More Than That.” Music-deprived Selenators uncovered another clue when Selena shared a couple of pics from her new Puma shoot. “I can’t wait to share the projects I’ve been working on with you,” she captioned the post. “The first one is here.” Interestingly, Benny Blanco commented with the “Shhh!” emoji. Given the success of their previous collaborations (“Same Old Love” and “Kill Em With Kindness”), a reunion makes complete sense.
See the (admittedly thin) evidence that SG2 is coming along below.
