Selena Gomez might not be using her next album as a Justin Bieber "tell-all," but that doesn't mean she's ruled out having her beau write a tune or two for her as she preps work on the 2013 release.

News of the duo's musical collaboration came via another artist Bieber recently worked with, will.i.am. "He taps me on the shoulder ... 'Yo, I want to show you this song I produced and wrote. I'm really excited about it because it's one of the first songs I produced by myself,' " his pal shared in an interview with "New Music Live," Ace Showbiz reports. The Black Eyed Peas' leading man then gave the track, which Bieber played for him, two thumbs up.

"The song was dope," will.i.am said. "He was like, 'Yeah, I wrote it for Selena. It's great.' And it was really awesome. It was really, really dope."

In June, Gomez made it clear that she won't be singing specifically about Bieber on this next release: "It's not going to be necessarily, 'Here's my tell-all,' " she said. "It's going to be more of something that people could say, 'It could be that or it could be this or it could be that.' At the end of the day, I only make my music because I want it [to] be really fun, and if I could have people dance to it, relate to it, have a good time, that's all I want."

In addition to her boyfriend, Gomez has reportedly also worked with Toby Gad and Rock Mafia. A release date for the next batch of tunes has yet to be announced.
