The pop star opens up about a destructive relationship in the candid lyrics.
In a second verse, she sings: "I gave my all and they all know it/You tore me down and now it's showing/In two months, you replaced us/Like it was easy/Made me think I deserved it/In the thick of healing, yeah".
No name has been dragged into the actual song, but that didn't stop the fans from speculating that this is all about Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber's official breakup. Just a few months months later, Biebs was deep in his relationship with now-wife Hailey Baldwin.
Meanwhile, Selena herself mentioned that the song Lose You To Love Me has been inspired by her life moments ever since she released her last single, Back To You (2018). UGHHHH MY FRAGILE HEART CANT TAKE ALL THESE EMOTIONSSSSS", one Selenator tweeted, and another wrote, "the fact that selena saw all the red flags in justin but made a decision to stay and keep trying just because she loved him.
Meanwhile, Selena's fans have flooded social media with their reactions to the song.
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.
Hailey actually got some flack from people on the internet for posting an instagram story minutes after Selena's song went live! A few lines after, Gomez sings "Set fire to my purpose/And I let it burn".
Remember, Selena never wound up working together with her other vocally skilled ex, The Weeknd again, this is simply theory, and she could simply be talking in allegories.
Despite trying to make their rekindled romance last, the pair eventually called it quits due to Gomez realizing that being with Bieber was taking a toll on her happiness. For the unversed, the lyrics of the song read, "You don't want no problems, I wish a bitch would". Since then, Gomez has released bits of new music along the way, including 2017's "Bad Liar" and "Fetish" (featuring Gucci Mane), and 2018's "Back To You", which was featured on the 13 Reasons Why Season 2 soundtrack.
