Julia Michaels On Why Her Duet with Selena Gomez Was the Perfect Collab

Julia Michaels has split time between writing hits for her friends like Selena Gomez and releasing her own songs namely her 2017 smash "Issues."

But on her new 6-song EP Inner Monologue Part 1 she did one better by recruiting a couple of those friends, Selena and Niall Horan for a pair of duets.

Julia tells Billboard they have wanted to do a track together for quite some time and chose this one because it’s outside of what’s expected for a female duet.

"We're not talking about our relationship with men or fighting over somebody or doing a female empowerment thing. This is a female empowerment thing, but it’s different. We're not throwing our fists in the air, but we're saying ‘We have anxiety, but we're okay.’"

Take a listen to “Anxiety” below:
