JJ: How did your collaboration with Selena Gomez come about? What was the inspiration for “Round & Round“?

KR: It happened out of nowhere! I was writing with Fefe Dobson for her album. We were working on her single “Ghost” and then came up with “Round and Round” in the middle of it. It wasn’t totally right for Fefe’s vibe but I sent it to Selena and she loved it. She cut it in Budapest and sent the vocals back to me.

JJ: Congratulations on your BMI Pop Award – what was your reaction when you found out you’d been honored?
