Selena Gomez just released an emotional new song, and many fans think it’s about her on-off relationship with Justin Bieber.
Selena Gomez dropped her new ballad “Lose You to Love Me” at midnight on Tuesday night, and fans immediately went into overdrive on social media.
In revealing lyrics, the 27-year-old singer details a toxic relationship — and how she’s standing stronger than ever after coming out on the other side.
While Gomez hasn’t revealed the specific inspiration for her new track, fans are convinced it was written about her on-and-off relationship with Justin Bieber.
“Set fire to my purpose and I let it burn / You got off in the hurtin’ when I wasn’t yours,” she sings on one verse, seemingly referencing his 2015 album Purpose.
Then in a later verse, Gomez gets even more specific, singing: “In two months you replaced us like it was easy / Made me think I deserved it in the thick of healing.”
After the song dropped fans were very quick to share their opinion on Twitter.
Here are some Tweets from fans:
Listened to Selena Gomez’ new song and I’m a fan! It’s sad hearing her say “In two months you replaced us “. I can literally feel her pain and how hurt she was that Justin Bieber got together with Hailey so fast. 😪 #LoseYouToLoveMe

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez split up in March of 2018, and just 3 months later Justin Bieber proposed to his now-wife Hailey Baldwin.
“This song was inspired by many things that have happened in my life since releasing my last album,” says Gomez — who co-wrote the track — in a statement. “I thought it was important to share the music, as I know many can relate to the fact that the road to self-discovery generally comes through the scars in one’s life.”
Do you think it was about her unhealthy relationship with Justin Bieber?
