Selena Gomez Clarifies Inspiration Behind New Song “Single Soon”
Pop sensation Selena Gomez has set the record straight regarding the inspiration behind her latest hit single, “Single Soon.” The release of the song on Friday ignited widespread speculation among fans, with many speculating that the lyrics alluded to her past relationship with superstar ex-boyfriend, The Weeknd. Gomez, however, has definitively put those rumors to rest.
In the song, Gomez explores the complexities of ending a romantic relationship, considering different ways to part ways with a partner. Notably, she references the weekend in the lyrics, leading to conjectures about her past love story with The Weeknd. The pop star dismisses these speculations with a firm statement on an Instagram post, affirming, “Couldn’t be more false.”
The romance between Gomez and The Weeknd lasted for approximately 10 months in 2017 before coming to an end. Sources close to the couple indicated that the split was rooted in The Weeknd’s prioritization of his burgeoning career. Known for his commitment to his musical legacy, The Weeknd was focused on his professional aspirations, leading to the amicable conclusion of their relationship. The pairing had surprised many due to The Weeknd’s usual discretion regarding his personal life.

Gomez, whose romantic history includes a highly publicized on-and-off relationship with Justin Bieber spanning nearly a decade, has often been in the spotlight for her romantic associations. Despite rumors linking her to various figures, including Italian film producer Andrea Iervolino, Gomez has not publicly confirmed any involvement beyond her previous relationships.
In a light-hearted TikTok video earlier this year, Gomez playfully addressed her relationship status while attending a soccer match. She enthusiastically declared her single status, acknowledging her penchant for being “a little high maintenance” but emphasizing her capacity for deep love.
“Single Soon” is another testament to Gomez’s musical prowess, offering a candid glimpse into the complexities of relationships and decisions. With her clarifying statement, the pop star has reaffirmed the song’s creative intent and quashed unfounded speculations.
