Helmet-wearing EDM upstart Marshmello has been teasing his collaboration with US pop star Selena Gomez for many months now.
The track — titled ‘Wolves’ — will finally drop sometime today, and yesterday Gomez gave fans a bit of inside skinny by revealing some of the lyrics and the track’s cover art.
But instead of whipping up hype, Marsh and Gomez suddenly found themselves on the receiving end of an almighty internet roast, due to the fact the artwork is hilariously terrible.
Here it is, in all its glory:
Yep, it’s… not great.
Unsurprisingly, the reaction on Twitter was swift and merciless:

Despite all the roasting being thrown around, Marshmello didn’t seem too worried about it all:
Life is too short
