Jax Jones & Selena Gomez's "This Is Real"
The rumors are true. Selena Gomez lends her vocals to Jax Jones' "This Is Real."

Jax Jones threw music-starved Selenators a bone last week when he shared a snippet of “This Is Real” on Instagram. The British producer first hinted at the collaboration way back in early 2016, but most of us forgot about it until the arrival of those 11 glorious seconds. The DJ, who has a huge hit on his hands with “You Don’t Know Me,” opened up about the track during an interview with Capital FM. “I mean, I said on the title that it was Selena,” he confirmed. “I’m not lying. There’s no Milli Vanilli going on here.”

“It is, it’s Selena Gomez,” Jax continued. “I mean, it’s a great record and one day I hope to release it.” Given the quality of the preview, I hope that day comes sooner rather than later. If for no other reason than it shows off the Revival diva’s underrated vocal chops and versatility. We know she can pull of sultry mid-tempo bops like “Good For You” and “Same Old Love,” but who knew she would sound this good soaring over ’90s house keys?
