Grace VanderWaal could be teaming up with a big time pop star sometime in the future!

The breakout star of America’s Got Talent recently caught up with Teen Vogue where she gave fans an exciting update with regards to whether or not she’d ever hit the studio with Shawn Mendes.

“Absolutely. We’ve talked about it before. We even sent over a couple of ideas and tunes but there hasn’t been that idea yet. I would definitely love to,” said VanderWaal.

Though the pair aren’t ready to hit the studio just yet, VanderWaal made it a point to say that Mendes is definitely the artist she’d love to collaborate with next, now that she’s already teamed up with her dream collaborator, Jason Mraz.

“I need to make a new answer for this question, because my old answer was always Jason Mraz and that happened, which was amazing,” said VanderWaal when Teen Vogue asked who she’d love to hit the studio with. “Now, I don’t have an answer for that question because it already happened. I guess my new answer is Shawn Mendes.

Though it sounds as though VanderWaal and Mendes joining forces will all come down to finding the perfect song, we’re sure it’s bound to happen sooner or later. Both artists are huge fans of each other, and have even had some sweet interactions via Twitter.

Most recently, Mendes took to the social media platform to share some kind words about VanderWaal’s newest single.

“.@GraceVanderWaal you are so awesome,” tweeted Mendes along with a link to the track.

It’s great to see that the two are such big fans of each others’ work, and we’re looking forward to the day when time is right to finally hit the studio together!
