Selena‘s beau Zedd recently gushed about working with her on their latest single “I Want You to Know.”
“I’d been working on this little idea with Ryan Tedder a couple of months ago and I met Selena randomly,” Zedd shared to Power 96.1. “I ran into her and she came into my studio…I played her all the music that I had and she played me some of the stuff that she’s been working on and we realized that there were songs that we could do together that’d sound really good, ‘I Want You to Know’ being the main focus for both of us.”
He added, “We started working on the song together and recorded her vocals and realized that it sounds perfect, so I never tried anyone else on the song and it happened to be the first single from my album.”

The 25-year-old DJ opened up with AMP Radio on Thursday morning (February 26) in Los Angeles.
“I had the day off and I decided to go buy stuff for my house because I just moved…and I had to pee and I had my engineer with me so I was like, ‘I hope they have a bathroom there.’ He was like, just go to the studio over there,” Zedd explained. “So I walk in and John, the head of our label, who had just signed Selena, was there…he was like, have you ever met Selena? So he introduced me to her, and was like hey, she’s cool, maybe we should make a song together. And then like a week later, we start working on a song together.”
As for the music video to their song “I Want You to Know,”Zedd said, “Yes, I will be in the video actually…and it will come out very soon,” adding that “there for sure is a plot, but we can’t tell you about that. We want it to be a surprise.”
Selena Gomez is reaching out to struggling fans, who are taking about suicide.
“By me following you is not me saying it’s ok to think these thoughts. It’s not me saying ‘hey you said sad things, so I’m going to follow you to make you feel better’. God puts us in situations that are so unexplainably difficult for a reason. There is someone in the world feeling so much, just like you,” the 22-year-old entertainer wrote on Instagram to a fan.
She added, “People everyday feel so many emotions they wish they could turn it off. But that’s not why we are here. We are here for relationships, for people just like us who feel worthless. Your purpose is to share, help, encourage. Remember that. Please. Before you think of taking your life, think of all the [lives] you could save. I love you. More importantly there is a God that will love more than I ever could.”
