Selena Gomezis done withJustin Bieber.
The 27 – year-old pop star 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 marriedHailey 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.
The pop star’s latest single explores how she had to let 25 – year-old Bieber go in order to find self-confidence and self-love, as she sings in the chorus, “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 Gomezended their relationship in March (*************************.(Bieber wasengaged to Baldwinby 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.
Bieber hasn’t publicly addressed the song, though Baldwin took a screenshot of Summer Walker’s song “I’ll Kill You” and posted it to her Instagram story shortly after Gomez released the track.
