Wiz Khalifa and Selena Gomez Hit the Studio
If anything was clear from Wiz Khalifa's 2015, it's that his pop sensibility has incredible cross-over potential. His Furious 7 track with Charlie Puth, "See You Again" sat atop the Billboard Hot 100 list for 12 nonconsecutive weeks last year and a recently posted video suggests he might be at it again.
On Thursday (March 3), Wiz posted the below video to Snapchat showing himself in the studio alongside pop singer and all around 'it' girl Selena Gomez. The two are listening to an unknown track that features Wiz rapping about throwing cash around. Gomez's most recent album Revival, dropped back in October with the lone feature likewise going to a mainstream hip-hop act in the way of A$AP Rocky who guests on "Good For You."
As for Wiz, he just dropped his fourth major studio album Khalifa last month, so it's likely a safe assumption that whatever the two are cooking up isn't for an album or major release from either artist. Perhaps Wiz is putting his soundtracking capabilities back into play, having provided tracks for both Fast 6 and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles prior to "See You Again." Gomez meanwhile is set to kick off her Revival Tour on May 6 in Las Vegas. While there isn't a planned stop in Pittsburgh, she'll likely earn some new fans in Wiz's hometown once her collaboration with the rapper reaches the masses.
