Selena Gomez's new single is here and fans think it's about her breakup with Justin Bieber

USA Today Entertainment 1 month ago

Selena Gomez just released the first song from her first album since 2015 and fans are convinced it's about her breakup with the now-married Justin Bieber

The single, "Lose You to Love Me," gives fans an emotional look at Gomez closing the door on a relationship that left her hurting. "We'd always go into it blindly / I needed to lose you to find me," she sings. 

After making their red carpet couple debut at the 2011 Vanity Fair Oscars after-party, Bieber, now 25, and Gomez, now 27, were wrapped up in a public on again, off again relationship for the next several years. Gomez's upcoming album, the title of which has not been released yet, will be her first since she and Bieber called it quits for good. 

Some fans thought Gomez's lines, "In two months, you replaced us / Like it was easy / Made me think I deserved it," referenced Bieber's quick rebound with now-wife Hailey Baldwin, whom he proposed to in 2018 just months after reconnecting and again breaking things off with Gomez. 

Others pointed to the line "set fire to my purpose" as a Taylor Swift-like Easter egg pointing to Bieber: "Purpose" was the album he released in November 2015, which he has said includes several songs about Gomez. 

"Set fire to my PURPOSE," one fan tweeted. "i see what selena did there"

"she definitely didn’t do that by accident," another speculated. 

"This song was inspired by many things that have happened in my life since releasing my last album," Gomez wrote from her official YouTube account in the comments of the music video. "I want people to feel hope and to know you will come out the other side stronger and a better version of yourself."

The pop star revealed her new album over the summer to Jimmy Fallon on "The Tonight Show," teasing the new music would give fans a more personal look inside her recent struggles. 

"I had such huge moments that happened in my life, personally," she said at the time, noting that she wondered how "to capture that and how was I going to actually feel good about what I was saying. So I just kept going and I'm relieved now."

What else can fans expect from Gomez's new music? A more "mellow" vibe, for one. And a "more emotional connection" with listeners, she said.

"I think there's always going to be a sense of strong pop in my music, but I definitely explored more with electric guitar, a lot of more soulful tracks underneath things, acoustic guitar," she continued to Fallon. "It all kind of hits different places that I feel like is my lane for music. ... I love everything that I get to do and be a part of, but specifically something that connects with people on an emotional level is my favorite. "
