The last time “See You Again” singer Charlie Puth teamed up with one of pop’s leading ladies, it didn’t go so well—his Meghan Trainor duet “Marvin Gaye” ended up on TIME’s worst songs of 2015 list.

Who knows what will happen if these two ever perform the song live—just like Selena, Puth can’t keep his hands to himself.
