'We Both Know' has since been replaced by a new solo Joshua Bassett song called 'Telling Myself'.
In January, Joshua Bassett made headlines after fans deduced that Olivia Rodrigo's hit single 'Drivers License' was possibly inspired by him breaking up with his High School Musical: The Musical: The Series co-star and dating Sabrina Carpenter. Since then both Joshua and Sabrina have put out singles of their own, with many fans connecting them to the alleged love triangle between the three Disney stars.
Joshua also teased a duet with Sabrina called 'We Both Know', but now it looks like the collab might have been scrapped.
On March 12, Joshua is scheduled to release his debut, self-titled EP. The project contains the singles 'Lie Lie Lie' and 'Only a Matter of Time', alongside four brand new songs. The original EP tracklist, which appeared on his website and streaming services, included 'We Both Know', a duet with his rumoured girlfriend Sabrina Carpenter. However, it's no longer there.
On Saturday (Feb 20), Joshua posted the new EP tracklist on social media and 'We Both Know' has been replaced by a solo song called 'Telling Myself'. As a result, fans have begun speculating as to why it's not coming out anymore. Some people think that Sabrina and Joshua could have broken up. Others think that it's to avoid any hate from Olivia Rodrigo fans.

wtf did Joshua really had to remove we both know because of the hate? sabrina was so excited about this song— alessia - STREAM SKIN (@folklorelennon) February 18, 2021
I don't know why we both know was removed from Joshua's ep, and I won't read into it. However Sabrina said it was a song very dear to her heart. I hope the decision to remove it took Sabrina's feelings into account. At the very least a mutual decision.— allistars (@suemeatabadtime) February 18, 2021
they removed We Both Know from Joshua's EP knowing the drama it would cause proving once again that Sabrina and even Joshua (eh) has never truly cared about this 'drama' that olivia and olivia stans created in the first place.— Samantha WORST BEHAVIOR (@dangerouslysab) February 18, 2021

Speaking about the song previously, Sabrina told Radio.com: "I can't say too much and it's on his project so I'm like, I don't want to say too much that I can't say but it's a collaboration very dear to my heart that I'm very excited about."
Joshua also told Febre Teen that he actually met Sabrina after messaging her about featuring on the song on Instagram.
Joshua said: "I sent her a quick message and was like, 'Hey I think you're really awesome and I have this song I think you would sound great on, let me know what you think. And she responded like ten minutes later, gave me her number, and I sent her the song. Fortunately, she liked it so we got together in the studio and it was just a blast to make."
As it stands, neither Sabrina nor Joshua have commented on why the song isn't part of the EP anymore. We shall keep you posted with any updates.
