Selena Gomez ushers in a new era in music with a brand new single. After years of not releasing music, she comes back with a heartfelt ballad called “Lose You to Love Me”. The music video solely features the pop star, in black and white, emotionally singing her track to the audience.

The song talks explicitly about letting herself go in the name of love. But that, in the end, it wasn’t worth changing for someone who maybe didn’t love her all that much. “You promised the world and I fell for it. I put you first and you adored it. Set fire to my forest, and you let it burn. Sang off-key on my chorus, cause it wasn’t yours,” she sang. In the chorus, she emphasized that the only way such a partner will ever truly love her is if he lost her. “We’d always go into it blindly. I needed to lose you find me. This cancer was killing me softly. I needed to hate you to find me” the bridge said.
As usual, fans have already speculated that the song might pertain to her past relationship with Justin Bieber. The two pop stars have had an on-and-off-again relationship in the past. And Gomez has often implied that their past has had a volatile effect on her and her mental health. Back in 2016, she reportedly went into rehab to help with her personal struggles with her own mental health. At the time, she withdrew herself from the public. She even stayed inactive on social media. It was only during that year’s American Music Awards on November 2016 that the public saw her again. Now, she has become busy working on her new album. She shared more about her yet-to-be-named forthcoming record during a recent interview on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon“. “I have to do a few finishing things with it, but I’m just relieved. It took me four years now to even feel at a good place with this album, and it’s just because I had such huge moments that happened in my life personally that ‘how was I going to capture that?’ And how was I actually gonna feel good about what I was saying?” Gomez shared during her guesting.
Furthermore, the singer also released a statement regarding the new song. “This song was inspired by many things that have happened in my life since releasing my last album. 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. I want people to feel hope and to know you will come out the other side stronger and a better version of yourself.” she relayed. Additionally, the Swedish producer-writer team Mattman & Robin worked on the song with Gomez.
For now, Gomez had yet to reveal new details surrounding her upcoming album. But this new release has reassured fans that she does plan to drop new music soon and usher in a new era in her growing career. Stay tuned on this space for more updates! Image Credits:
