Are Selena Gomez's & The Weeknd's New Songs About Justin Bieber?

Selena Gomez and The Weeknd just dropped hot new songs, and we’ve got them on repeat.

Since Sel and The Weeknd are now famously dating, it’s hard not to listen to them and think “It Ain’t Me” and “Some Way” might be, well, a little autobiographical.

After all, who doesn’t write songs about exes?

Without exes, we wouldn’t have “Cry Me a River” by Justin Timberlake, “Skyscraper” by Demi Lovato, “Wide Awake” by Katy Perry, “7 Things” by Miley Cyrus… and, Hi!, let’s not forget Lemonade by Beyoncé!

We need songs about exes! So, is that the case here?

Let’s start with “It Ain’t Me.”

Selena‘s anthem to an ex has a few big clues she might be referring to Justin Bieber.

Consider this verse:

“Somewhere along the lines
We stopped seeing eye to eye
You were staying out all night
And I had enough”

Selena has said in interviews that her and Justin‘s problems were “too big” to overcome.

In a later verse, she says:

“We were back to seventeen
Summer nights and the liberties
Never growing up
I’ll take with me the polaroids and the memories
But you know I’m gonna leave behind the worst of us”

That’s a big clue. Justin was 17 (Selena was 19) the year they made their relationship media and social media official.

On the other hand, Selena also dated Nick Jonas and Taylor Lautner around the time she was 17. But, by all accounts, those relationships ended peacefully.

Now, for The Weeknd‘s “Some Way”:

There’s really just one line that hints to being a jab at JB.

“I think your girl, think your girl, fell in love with me
Now you gettin’ mad because you got replaced”

But, then again, it’s kind of a generic line that could be a pop shot at any ex of a current fling.

It’s possible The Weeknd wrote this song before his fling with Selena or just dropped it in at the last minute, given the situation.

We’re hoping the song isn’t, in fact, about his current relationship, since it’s not really a love song.

The woman at the center of “Some Way” seems to be more of a trophy than a true love. And judging by Selena and the Weeknd‘s recent getaways, they looked pretty infatuated with each other!

Still, the fact that these two songs were released at the same time probably isn’t a coincidence. We wonder what Justin is thinking right now! We already know that his favorite song is “Starboy.”

    2.3 million likes and the song will probably not even go gold? 110 million followers and she can’t sell out half a small arena show? I like selena but do the people who like or follow her buy her music? With her Instagram numbers she should be selling out stadiums in minutes?

      It’s on itunes #4, spotify’s #6. And she has many 4xplatinum, 3xplatinum and 2xplatinum songs. And she can sell out arenas, check billboard box score data. And no, you don’t like Selena. Stop kidding.

        Sorry I misspoke she can only sell out 84% of the small arena shows she didn’t cancel . Selena probably will never tour again because no insurance company will bond or insure someone who has never completed a tour. Her multiple tour cancellations have cost people millions. For whatever reason she cancelled, sales or sickness the cost for insurance will be to high for a profitable tour!
        And yes I’m a fan but also a realist!
