Selena Gomez, an American singer and actress, has said that she was a fan of Rema, a Nigerian afrobeats performer, before they cooperated on the ‘Calm Down’ remix.
She stated that she originally fell in love with Rema’s song, ‘Runaway,’ before contacting the “Rave Lorde” for a remix of ‘Calm Down.’
Gomez said she agreed to work with Rema because she admires his demeanour and “just wanna take care of him.”
The 32-year-old superstar said this during an appearance on the most recent episode of the VA 100 New York Podcast.
She said, “I actually fell in love with the song ‘Runaway’ before I fell in love with ‘Calm down.’ I literally was a fan of his. But it [remixing ‘Calm Down’] was all like kind of his idea.
“When I met him, I honestly was so impressed by his demeanor, how humble and how grateful he is for every moment. And, I just couldn’t pick someone else who deserves all this success in the world. He is so kind. I don’t know, I just wanna like take care of him [laughs].”
