LISTEN: Selena Gomez has recorded a duet with Vin Diesel. This is not a drill.

We need help reacting to this properly.

On Friday, Selena Gomez released her new single It Ain’t Me on Spotify, a collaboration with dance producer Kygo.

So far, so normal. Pop stars be pop music-ing.

Then in the early hours of this morning, Vin Diesel posted a new video on his Facebook page, and there he is dueting with Gomez on the dance track, like this is a thing that just happens now.

Is this for real? Is this real life? We would’ve been inclined to believe that Vin was just having a laugh – did you listen to his voice suddenly drop about fifteen thousand octaves for that first chorus? – but he took to Instagram to announce with nothing but pure sincerity just how happy he is with the end product.

So there you have it. Vin Diesel: actor, producer, massive Dungeons & Dragons fan, and now… pop-star. Hooray?
