Selena Gomez has finally released on Tuesday her much-awaited single ‘Lose You to Love Me,’ in which she addressed her past lover. 

“This song was inspired by many things that have happened in my life since releasing my last album,” Selena said in a statement. 

“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.

The singer said she felt that it was necessary to share the song since she knows that many can connect to the fact “scars in one’s life” lead to self-discovery.

“I want people to feel hope and to know you will come out the other side stronger and a better version of yourself,” she added. 

In the iPhone 11 Pro-shot music video of ‘Lose You to Love Me,’ Selena has showed diverse emotions, from anger to freedom, and from sadness to joy. 

The chorus goes, “We’d always go into it blindly / I needed to lose you to find me / This dance it was killin’ me softly.” 

Meanwhile, in other verses, Selena was apparently referring to her relationship with ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber. 

“Set fire to my purpose and I let it burn,” she sings, probably hinting Justin’s Purpose album released in 2015. 

Fans would also bet dollars to doughnuts that Selena was pointing out to the “Love Yourself” singer in this lyric: “In two months you replaced us like it was easy.” 

After their break-up in 2018, Justin soon moved on, then started a relationship with now-wife Hailey Baldwin.

‘Lose You to Love Me’ follows ‘I Can’t Get Enough’ wherein Selena collaborated  with Benny Blanco, Tainy and J Balvin in February.
