Joshua Bassett Opens Up About Removing Sabrina Carpenter Duet From EP

Joshua Bassett is speaking out about no longer releasing his upcoming duet with Sabrina Carpenter on his debut EP.

The 20-year-old HSMTMTS star opened up about the decision in a new interview with Billboard.

Joshua told the site that both he and Sabrina were “super excited” about the song, but in the end, “it was a very much a mutual conversation about what is best right now for everybody and this whole situation.”

“I didn’t want my EP to be overshadowed by some other narrative that people were trying to make,” Joshua added. “I really want the focus to be on the art instead of some of the talk and the chatter. You shouldn’t live to please everybody, but at the same time, there are ways to be sensitive to situations where maybe [‘We Both Know’] has a better chance at a different time.”

Joshua and Sabrina‘s song “We Both Know” was originally supposed to be the 5th song on the EP, but has been replaced with the track “Telling Myself.” Sabrina even teased the duet earlier this month.

The self titled EP will be out on March 12th.

“First, I was in disbelief — [I was] mostly proud of Olivia,” he told Billboard about the sketch. “The fact that they were using her song in a sketch, I was like, ‘This is great. This is incredible!’”

“I was like, ‘I think I’m honored?’” he added about when the mentioned him. “They poke fun at everyone and everything. That’s the point of the show. I thought it was hilarious.”

Joshua Bassett Calls 'Lie Lie Lie' Speculation 'Ridiculous' In New Video

Joshua Bassett is dishing on his single “Lie Lie Lie,” and all the drama speculation surrounding it.

The 20-year-old singer and actor breaks down the lyrics in the song, and addresses the online talk of it being about Olivia Rodrigo, in a new video with Genius.

“I thought it was funny, people sort of jumping to conclusions on who they think the song is about. And, you know, them thinking that I sort of wrote and released it within a week,” Joshua said. “It’s kind of ridiculous. I mean, there’s literally proof on my Instagram that I wrote it two and a half years ago. And nobody will ever know who the song is about.”

“But it is funny to sort of see the speculation on who people think it’s about,” he continued. “I’ve done my best to sort of make it clear that it’s not about anyone in particular that they might think it is. But you know, people are gonna think what they’re gonna think.”

He also revealed that the song flowed right out of him while he was in his kitchen in just his underwear.

“I was standing in my kitchen, in my underwear with my guitar just like, messing around,” Joshua said. “And I remember the situation and I got, I remember just getting so angry, and it’s almost like I blacked out, and I just started singing. Most of the song just kind of spilled out from there.”

Sabrina Carpenter Teases Joshua Bassett Collab, Addresses Online Drama

Sabrina Carpenter is talking all things music!

The 21-year-old “Skin” singer just addressed all the drama surrounding her song, Olivia Rodrigo‘s track and Joshua Bassett.

“That was probably why it was one of the things I’ve been most nervous to put out, but that was also something exciting about it,” Sabrina told Radio.com. “There’s only so many times in life when we really get to write about what’s affecting us in the moment… I think in this situation, a lot of people have probably felt that way.”

“It’s such a struggle not to be able to control the narrative and know that whether you say something or whether you don’t say something, people are gonna be mad at you either way. People are probably not going to be pleased with whatever you say or don’t say,” she added. “It’s really just one of those things where you have to kind of to do for yourself at the end of the day and do it in the hopes that someone can find inspiration in the message.”

See what she previously said about the song and the speculation.

“At the end of the day, the more I dance around the subject, the less people kind of understand where I’m coming from. Not that the goal is to get them to understand, ‘cause I don’t think at the end of the day you’re ever going to accomplish that,” Sabrina added about the drama. “But the more honest I could be in that moment, and that fact is, exactly what I said, it wasn’t a call out to one person.”

“That situation is a situation, and plenty of other things have happened in this past year alone in my life that I was like, ‘it’s getting to be a lot,’ and I need to compile these thoughts into one place, and into one message that I can kind of come full circle with and constantly remind myself that people can only get to you if you allow them to,” she continued.

Sabrina also shared a little tease about her upcoming collaboration with Joshua, which will be on his upcoming EP.

“I can’t say too much, and it’s on his project, so I don’t want to say too much that I can’t say. It’s a collaboration very dear to my heart that I’m excited about, and we did it a while ago now,” she shared.

Joshua Bassett just dropped his brand new song “Only a Matter of Time“!

The 20-year-old not only released the song from his debut EP, but the music video as well, which just features a close up of him singing the song on a railroad track.

“It’s only a matter of time / an eye for an eye / you’ll go blind / and when did you stop being kind? / you twisted your words like a knife,” Joshua sings in the song. “I’m sure that you’re hurting inside / Why would you make your pain mine? / Making me pay me for your crimes.”

He first announced the release the day before, and included a pre-release note for fans.

“hiiii i wrote this song half a year ago, and this release has been scheduled for months!” he wrote. “very proud of this one and can’t wait for you all to hear!!! :)”

His HSMTMTS co-star Matt Cornett also commented, “Can’t wait for this one. One of my favorites. 👏🏼”

“I wrote this song in the summer of 2020 in a moment in time where social media was bringing a lot of darkness to my life,” Joshua added in a press release about the track. “It was healing to put my phone down, turn off the noise and just write. There’s good that comes from social media, but it’s also become a place where people can say anything about anyone, no matter how false or damaging with no accountability. We’ve gotta be much kinder to each other and recognize there are real people behind the screens!”
