Selena Gomez, 27, is back in the music game! The singer took to Instagram on Oct. 18 to share the title of her new song and her single’s album art. Selena posted the black and white, tattered looking cover art with nothing but her expressionless face featured.
At the bottom of the photo was the title fans have been waiting for: “Lose You To Love Me.” “I needed to lose you to love me. 10.23. Link in bio,” the singer captioned the pic. It’s felt like such a long time for fans since Selena released new music solo. Now that they have a glimpse at what to expect, it’s not just the album art and release date that fans are chatting about.
A number of fans are thinking that the song is about Selena’s ex, Justin Bieber, 25. Many fans took to social media to air out their thoughts, with one commenting on Twitter, “Looking forward to hearing Selena Gomez’ new song. Based on the title “Lose you to love me” I’m pretty sure this song is about Justin Bieber.” Another fan chimed in on Twitter to add to the conversation, writing, “Justin Bieber stans crying because Selena Gomez’s new song might be about him. But his whole discography is about her, he is still googling her name to see her outfit and even his own wife is obsessed with her so stfu. He might get exposed and y’all are scared.” Wow! Even in the comments of the “Hands To Myself” singer’s Instagram post, one follower even tagged Justin and his wife, Hailey Baldwin, 22!
Selena Gomez is just one day away from dropping her new single.
The singer teased the song, "Lose You to Love Me," on Monday (Oct. 21) with a spooky new teaser, which finds the song's title in white floating in the middle of a moonlit forest at night with the word "me" flickering as the camera zooms in.
Gomez again tagged Spotify in the post, with the streaming service retweeting the tease.
It’s almost here! Selena Gomez, 27, teased her upcoming song, ‘Lose You To Love Me’ on her Instagram page on Oct. 22 with a beautiful clip that could be from the song’s music video. In the post, the “Hands To Myself” songstress sits at a piano, playing chords in succession. The black and white clip is lit so perfectly, fans can barley see Selena’s face while her beautiful black hair falls over her shoulders and down her back.
While at the piano, Selena wears a simple, white slip dress with a matching sweater wrapped around her lower back and the sleeves just covering her lower arms and wrists. The video also cuts to black and one point, featuring Selena’s name, then featuring the title of the ballad: “Lose You To Love Me.” “Tonight. 9 pm PT/ 12 am ET/ 4 am GMT,” she captioned the post.
Fans have been freaking out about the song since the pop star took to Instagram on Oct. 18, finally sharing with her fans the title of her new, solo track. Selena even showed the album art for the song, featuring a tattered black and white photo of Selena looking at the camera, totally wide-eyed.
Naturally, fans started reading into the song’s title and went all over social media sharing their thoughts that the ballad could be about Selena’s old flame, Justin Bieber, 25. “Looking forward to hearing Selena Gomez’ new song,” a fan wrote on Twitter. “Based on the title “Lose you to love me” I’m pretty sure this song is about Justin Bieber.”
Justin and Selena have been officially broken up for more than a year now, but just like the song says, it takes time to heal.
‘Lose You to Love Me’ starts off saying “Set fires to my forest/ and you let it burn/ sang off-key in my chorus/ cause it wasn’t yours.”
So right away I’m thinking that Selena is talking about another singer.
She continues by singing “I saw the signs and I ignored it/Rose colored glasses all distorted”
And the next line is what really gets me - she says “Set fire to my purpose and I let it burn”.
I mean, remember Justin’s last album “Purpose” that came out in 2015? I’m hoping Selena is being literal here - I picture her taking her old CD and throwing it into a bonfire in her hundred acre back yard.
