American singer and actress, Selena Gomez has revealed that she has been a fan of Nigerian afrobeats star, Rema even before they collaborated on the ‘Calm Down’ remix.

Gomez said she accepted to work with Rema because she loves his demeanor, stressing that she “just wanna take care of him.”
The 32-year-old superstar disclosed this while appearing in the latest 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].”
