Selena Gomez’s new single dropped on Tuesday gives an insight into the last few years of her life. In an accompanying music video, the stunner also portrays a range of emotions for the camera.
What the track says:
The 27-year old singer finally dropped her new single in the mid hours of the night on Tuesday. The interesting part is that the track describes her life in the last few years. Gomez sings in a haunting chorus, “We’d always go into it blindly / I needed to lose you to find me / This dance it was killin’ me softly,” that is bound to make you rethink. She sings about her ex-relationship, in all likelihood, the saga with Justin Bieber, “Set fire to my purpose and I let it burn.” This is a possible reference to Bieber’s 2015 album Purpose. In a later verse, the Gomez sings: “In two months you replaced us like it was easy.” Once again this is seemingly a reference to Bieber’s new relationship with his now-wife Hailey Baldwin.
The singer thinks
While talking about the song, the singer explained how it is based on many things happened to her. Gomez, who is also a co-writer of the track said, “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.”
She further added, “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.
Talking about her future works and ambitions, Gomez said that being patient is her foremost target now. “I feel like the next few choices that I’m gonna make are very crucial, so I’m trying to be really, really diligent and just patient with everything,” she told her fans earlier this year. “The album is coming very soon.”
