Selena Gomez – Lose You To Love Me (Lyrics Review and Song Meaning)
Selena Gomez took to Twitter today to announce a brand new single releasing on October 23, 2019. With just hours to the release time, we also got a snippet of the upcoming music video for the song. The new song, titled “Lose You To Love Me,” seems to be a moody ballad on self-discovery after experiencing heartbreak. The vocals are backed by a powerful solo piano performance by Selena Gomez herself.
According to available song credits the song has been produced by FINNEAS, the producer and brother of pop artist Billie Eilish. He has also contributed in lyrics to this track.
“Lose You To Love Me” is from Selena Gomez’s upcoming third solo studio album. The album has had singles such as “Fetish” featuring Gucci Mane, “Wolves” with Marshmello and “Bad Liar.” There is no official release date of the album as of now.
In the comments section for the YouTube music video, Selena Gomez explained the inspiration behind this song; “This song was inspired by many things that have happened in my life since releasing my last album. I want people to feel hope and to know you will come out the other side stronger and a better version of yourself.” So albeit it being a song about losing in love, it is also a song about picking yourself up!
On Twitter, Selena Gomez dedicated the song to all her fans for sticking by her through the ups and downs in her personal life; “Thank you all for standing by my side through the highs and lows. I couldn’t do it without you all and I can’t wait to start my next adventure with you. 🖤”

Selena Gomez also shared pre-save links for the single on Spotify, which had allegedly broken the record for ‘most Spotify pre-saves in 24 hours.’
Is “Lose You to Love Me” a song for Justin Bieber? There is one lyric line that seems out of place or rather forced in with the rest to highlight an idea. In the first verse of the song, Selena sings that this guy “set fire to my purpose.” Coincidentally enough, ‘Purpose’ is also the title of the fourth studio album by Justin Bieber released in 2015. The verse goes on to explain how the guy had his dreams and goals in front of them and their relationship, which eventually lead to their fall out.
Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez had an on-again and off-again relationship for several years until finally calling it quits for good in 2018. The pre-chorus sings that Selena and her lover had several fallouts and they still kept on trying to date without fixing the real issues.
Another sign that this song is about Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez appears in the second verse. Selena Gomez sings that her lover got into a new relationship within two months of breaking up. This information is consistent with the dating life of Justin Bieber. He broke up with Selena Gomez in March 2018 and got into a new relationship in June 2018 with Hailey Baldwin.
