News that Justin Bieber and reported girlfriend Selena Gomez recorded a so-called Jelena duet titled “Unfamiliar” swept the Internet like wildfire two weeks ago.
According to a group of Toronto fans, Bieber played the song to them during an impromptu street stop in the city on March 14. Since then, tracks purporting to be the song have been uploaded online and sourcing remained speculative.
However, as per a Tuesday announcement from WeKnowTheDJ.com — the website of Tay James, the official Believe tour DJ and close friend of Bieber – a Wednesday site statement read:
“It is now confirmed that yes, indeed, Justin and Selena have recorded a song together.”
The website suggests “Unfamiliar“ is a highly personal relationship track just as “Love Will Remember” – a song on Selena’s Stars Dance album and Justin’s “Nothing Like Us,” which was a bonus cut on Believe Acoustic – also were. Both albums released in 2013.
As far as musical details about the Jelena duet, the WeKnowTheDJ team deferred to tweets sent by the Toronto fans, some of whom said Gomez was the main vocalist with Bieber in a cameo role. Others differed.
No release date is mentioned. In fact, it’s left open whether the duet will be put out at all.
Meanwhile, Bieber and Gomez still managed to raise temperatures this week without singing a note.
On Tuesday, the reunited pair teased revealing pictures on their respective Instagram and Twitter accounts at around the same time.
The “Confident” superstar teased two shots of himself wearing Calvin Klein underwear, low-slung pants and a patterned open shirt, and asked fans for their feedback on him featuring in a campaign.
