Selena Gomez dropped her emosh new single 'Lose You to Love Me' last night and within seconds fans had gone wild on social media over the possible references to ex Justin Bieber and their roller coaster relationship. In the track, she pours her heart out about a past, toxic relationship and how she's bounced back and is stronger than ever.
Ahead of the release, Selena told fans the song was about past experiences, though didn't mention any names. Naturally, fans are now convinced it's all about Justin.
"This song was inspired by many things that have happened in my life since releasing my last album," the 27-year-old said. "I want people to feel hope and to know you will come out the other side stronger and a better version of yourself."
In one verse she warbles, "In two months you replaced us like it was easy / Made me think I deserved it in the thick of healing."
In another, she seemingly references Justin's 2015 'Purpose' album when she sings, "Set fire to my purpose / And I let it burn / You got off on the hurting when it wasn't yours."
After hearing the lyrics, one fan commented on Twitter: "Listened to Selena Gomez’ new song and I’m a fan! It’s sad hearing her say 'In two months you replaced us'. I can literally feel her pain and how hurt she was that Justin Bieber got together with Hailey so fast. #LoseYouToLoveMe."

*Justin Bieber gets married*
*Selena sings, "I gave my all and they all know it
You turned me down, and now it's showing
In two months you replaced us
Like it was easy
Made me think I deserved it
And to think of healing"*#LoseYouToLoveMe pic.twitter.com/Fg2FomdUwp— BA(@BrookeAnne_15) October 23, 2019
Selena's new song is very deep. somehow i felt the song was intended for Justin. because there are lyrics that say "in two months you replaced us", and as i know they broke up at march 2018 then he started dating with hailey at may 2018. or maybe it was only my conclusion.— s (@bucinbobba) October 23, 2019

A second shared: "SELENA GOMEZ CALLING OUT JUSTIN BIEBER. YAS QUEEN. No one can change my mind."
And a third praised Selena's sassy comeback, writing: "PSA: Y’ALL. SELENA GOMEZ HAS NEVER LOOKED OR BEEN BETTER & SHE’S DOING IT WITH A SONG 100% ABOUT JUSTIN BIEBER. ‘In two months you replaced us like it was easy.’ I love it so much. She’s back."
Selena and Justin ended their on-off, on-off, on-off relationship for good last March. Just a few months later, he started dating Hailey Baldwin and shortly after that the pair were not only engaged but also married. Last month, they did it all over again but this time with an A-List audience, close family members and a stunning wedding dress.
