The 24-year-old part-Mexican and part-Spanish American singer has joined voices with Zedd.

Kehlani

The hit producer has shared a snippet of his forthcoming single called “Good Thing” with Kehlani.

An innocent, syncopated synth bounces softly as if in intro. While there isn’t a preview of the singer’s work, one can imagine she’s put on her dance-pop best.

This is Zedd and Kehlani’s first collaboration. She usually works in the pop, hip-hop and R&B worlds, though she did famously appear on Calvin Harris‘ funk tune “Faking It” with Lil Yachty

“Good Thing” follows Zedd’s Katy Perry collab “365,” released in February. 

The Kehlani single is due out Friday, September 27.

“Wolves” reigns with 13 million U.S. streams, 8 million in all-format radio audience and 28,000 downloads sold, according to Nielsen Music.

Kygo’s “Stay,” featuring Maty Noyes, started at No. 8 in December 2015, while “I Want You to Know” (by Zedd featuring Gomez) made a No. 9 entry in March 2015. The new track is the third overall top 10 for Kygo and the second for Gomez.

Following its February 16 release, “It Ain’ Met” sold 19,000 downloads in the week ending that day, according to Nielsen Music, also good for a No. 4 start on Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales. That sum plus 1.7 million U.S. streams and 14 million radio airplay audience impressions (through Febriury 19) all contribute to the track’s high Hot Dance/Electronic Songs debut.

Gomez Releases Sultry Video for Her New Single “Good For You”

It’s looking good for Selena Gomez

The 22-year-old half-Mexican American singer/actress has released the music video for her new single “Good For You,” her collaboration with A$AP Rocky.

Selena Gomez

In this “stripped down version of the song,” which Gomez shared with her Twitter followers, the New York rapper — or anyone else other than the former Disney Channel star is present.

Gomez appears lying around in various positions, seemingly waiting for her special someone, as she coos “Make you never wanna leave/So don’t… so don’t.”

Later, Gomez appears in the shower, then a warehouse where she towers over the camera, and then to a few other sequences where Gomez writhes around.

The “Good For You” video, directed by Sophie Muller, has already garnered 9.4 million views on Vevo.

“Good For You” was released last week, and is the debut single for Gomez’s follow-up album to 2013’s Stars Dance.

In February, Gomez’s Zedd collaboration “I Want You To Know” was released, and the single became a Top 20 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Gomez Teases New Music Video with Sultry Shower Image

Selena Gomez may be baring it all in her next music video…

The 22-year-old half-Mexican American singer/actress took to Instagram on Monday to share a steamy photo that many fans assume was snapped while Gomez was filming the video.

Selena Gomez

The photo shows the former Disney Channel star posing naked under pouring water in a dimly lit shower.

“Ready.. #itscomingsoon,” Gomez wrote in the caption.

There’s still no official word if the picture is indeed a preview of her music video.

Gomez is currently working hard on her next studio album, which will mark her first since leaving Disney-owned Hollywood Records and joining Interscope. Her manager Aleen Keshishian recently promised that the first offering from the follow-up to 2013’s Stars Dance would arrive “soon,” so that Selenators “will have a good summer!”

Earlier this year, Gomez teamed up with Zedd for “I Want You to Know from the DJ’s True Colors album and appeared as BFF Taylor Swift‘s nemesis in the star-studded “Bad Blood” music video.
