Selena Gomez is finally done with Justin Bieber!
Selena Gomez released “Lose You to Love Me” early Wednesday—along with a black-and-white music video shot entirely on an iPhone—and the song appears to be a Dear John letter to her ex-boyfriend, who has since married Hailey Baldwin.
“You promised the world and I fell for it / I put you first and you adored it / Set fires to my forest / And you let it burn / Sang off-key in my chorus / ‘Cause it wasn’t yours,” Gomez sings, seemingly referring to their 2013 demo “Can’t Steal Our Love.”
“I saw the signs and I ignored it / Rose-colored glasses all distorted / Set fire to my purpose / And I let it burn / You got off on the hurtin’ / When it wasn’t yours, yeah,” she continued.
Selena latest single explores how she had to let Justin Bieber go in order to find self-confidence and self-love:
“We’d always go into it blindly / I needed to lose you to find me…”
“…This dancing was killing me softly / I needed to hate you to love me, yeah.”
The “Wolves” singer also appears to reference how quickly Bieber moved on with Baldwin after he and Gomez ended their relationship in March 2018. (Bieber was engaged to Baldwin by July 2018).
“In two months, you replaced us / Like it was easy…”
“…Made me think I deserved it / In the thick of healing, yeah,” she sings.
Justin Bieber hasn’t publicly addressed the song. Though, Baldwin took a screenshot of Summer Walker’s song “I’ll Kill You.”
She then posted it to her Instagram story shortly after Gomez released the track.
Selena Gomez drops a new song called “Look At Her Now!” It seems to tell the story of her growth since ending her relationship with Justin Bieber
“It was her first real lover / His too ’til he had another / Oh God when she found out / Trust levels went way down,” Gomez sings.
Gomez makes it clear that she’s relieved she’s moved on from Justin.
Following the release of “Lose You to Love Me,” fans felt Bieber’s wife, Hailey Baldwin, threw shade at Selena Gomez.
She posted the song “I’ll Kill You” on her Instagram story. Baldwin later denied it was a jab at her husband’s ex.
Gomez eventually took to her Instagram Live to address her fans about being supportive of the”other women.”
“I am grateful for the response that the song is getting. I am so grateful. However, I do not stand for women tearing women down,” Gomez shared. “I will never, ever be by that. So please be kind to everyone.”
