Joshua Bassett Explains Why He Removed Sabrina Carpenter Collab from Upcoming EP

Joshua Bassett is opening up about his decision to remove his collaboration with girlfriend Sabrina Carpenter from his upcoming EP.

The 20-year-old singer and High School Musical: The Musical: The Series actor shared the track list for the EP last week and his fans noticed that the collab, titled “We Both Know,” was removed from the list.

Joshua told Billboard that he and Sabrina are “super excited about” the song and “it was a very much a mutual conversation about what is best right now for everybody and this whole situation.”

He added, “I didn’t want my EP to be overshadowed by some other narrative that people were trying to make. I really want the focus to be on the art instead of some of the talk and the chatter. You shouldn’t live to please everybody, but at the same time, there are ways to be sensitive to situations where maybe [‘We Both Know’] has a better chance at a different time.”

Joshua and Sabrina are the alleged subjects of his co-star Olivia Rodrigo‘s hit song “Driver’s License,” which has been on top of the Hot 100 for six weeks now. Sabrina‘s song “Skin” was seemingly a response to that track.

All three of them were mentioned in an SNL skit about the song this past weekend.

“First, I was in disbelief — [I was] mostly proud of Olivia,” Joshua said about the sketch. “The fact that they were using her song in a sketch, I was like, ‘This is great. This is incredible!’”

When he heard his name get called out, he said, “I was like, ‘I think I’m honored?’ They poke fun at everyone and everything. That’s the point of the show. I thought it was hilarious.”

Sabrina Carpenter Was Asked About Using the Word 'Blonde' in Her Song 'Skin'

Sabrina Carpenter is speaking out about her song-writing process for her new single “Skin.”

In case you missed it, Sabrina recently dropped a new song which fans have theorized is a response to Olivia Rodrigo‘s single “Driver’s License.” Olivia‘s song supposedly details her relationship with High School Musical: The Musical: The Series co-star Joshua Bennett, who Sabrina is currently dating.

In “Driver’s License,” Olivia mentions a blonde girl who makes her doubt the relationship. Fans have interpreted Sabrina‘s lyrics, “Maybe then we could pretend / There’s no gravity in the words we write / Maybe you didn’t mean it / Maybe ‘blonde’ was the only rhyme,” as a response to Olivia‘s.

In an interview with Radio.com on Wednesday (February 3), Sabrina was asked about her inclusion of the “blonde” line and how she felt people would interpret it.

“At the end of the day, the more I dance around the subject, the less people kind of understand where I’m coming from,” Sabrina explained. “Not that the goal is to get them to understand, ‘cause I don’t think at the end of the day you’re ever going to accomplish that. But the more honest I could be in that moment, and that fact is, exactly what I said, it wasn’t a call out to one person. That situation is a situation, and plenty of other things have happened in this past year alone in my life that I was like, ‘it’s getting to be a lot,’ and I need to compile these thoughts into one place, and into one message that I can kind of come full circle with and constantly remind myself that people can only get to you if you allow them to.”

Sabrina addressed speculation that “Skin” was a diss-track about Olivia in an Instagram post after its release.

Olivia Rodrigo Responds to Rumors That 'Driver's License' Is About Joshua Bassett & Sabrina Carpenter

Olivia Rodrigo‘s new song “Driver’s License” became a smash hit song in recent weeks and one major focus of many headlines was with trying to guess who the song was about.

Well, fans believed the song could have been about her High School Musical: The Musical: The Series co-star Joshua Bassett. There are rumors the pair had something going on between them for a while. Joshua, 20, is now in a relationship with fellow Disney star Sabrina Carpenter, 21, and fans believe that Olivia wrote the song about them.

“I totally understand people’s curiosity with the specifics of who the song’s about and what it’s about, but to me, that’s really the least important part of the song,” Olivia told Billboard. “It’s resonating with people because of how emotional it is, and I think everything else is not important.”

“To see it do really well — to have this really painful moment in my life, and turn it into something beautiful that can maybe help people through a tough time that they’re having, like I was having a tough time — it’s just so empowering,” she added. “I feel grateful that I got to do that.”
