Internet Detectives Are Investigating The Weeknd’s New Album For Info About His Break-Up With Selena Gomez

Great news for The Weeknd fans: On Friday, March 30th, he dropped six new songs on his new album, My Dear Melancholy. Of course, fans are already finding hidden meanings in the lyrics, particularly in “Call Out My Name.”

Many fans think the song references famous ex, Selena Gomez — and they might not be completely wrong.


Verse two of the song appears to reference Selena’s kidney transplant in 2017, implying The Weeknd was almost a donor: “I said I didn’t feel nothing baby, but I lied / I almost cut a piece of myself for your life.”

The Weeknd threw some shade right after that line, considering how Gomez got back together with Justin Bieber a few days after their break-up, singing, “Guess I was just another pit stop / Til’ you made up your mind / You just wasted my time.” Like, damn.

Fans are praising the new album — from tweeting gifs to express their overwhelming emotion over the lyrics to some even thanking Gomez for breaking up with him to inspire the music.

Overall, the new album is amazing and I am definitely listening to it on repeat.
