Selena Gomez Releases A New Emotional Song

Is this the leading single for her next album that fans have been anticipating?

Selena Gomez Releases A New Emotional Song

Since her last album, Revival, was released in 2015, Selena Gomez has come out with a few songs that topped the charts including "Bad Liar," "Fetish," and "Wolves." However, none of them seemed to signify a new era until this past Tuesday night, October 22nd, when the superstar released her newest single, "Lose You to Love Me".

Although it is yet to be confirmed, what fans anticipate is most likely true. This is most likely the leading track for her untitled upcoming third studio album.

The tune is much more emotional and heartfelt than other tracks since album number two, which tended to be more upbeat and fun. It is an anthem about self-love and doing what is best for you, even if it is extremely hard and you lose people who you are close to in the process.

The piano ballad discusses the highly important message of how sometimes you need to let go of certain people if they are holding you back from fully embracing yourself. "We'd always go into it blindly, I needed to lose you to find me. This dancing was killing me softly, I needed to hate you to love me," she sings.

There is major speculation that this song is referring to Gomez's rather popular ex-boyfriend, Justin Bieber. In one line she states, "In two months, you replaced us, like it was easy. Made me feel like I deserved it, in the thick of healing." Just after the two broke up, Bieber announced that he was dating Hailey Baldwin, who he is now happily married to. At the time, this came as a shock to Gomez, because she was most likely still trying to mourn their relationship and get over him, while Bieber seemed to had already moved on.

Many people could feel the pain she was going through and she had to face it all under the light and judgments of millions.

Gomez created this masterpiece by teaming up with another well-known star, producer FINNEAS, who is most well known for his work with his younger sister, Billie Eilish but has recently released an EP of his own as well.

The emotional tone of Finneas' producing skills alongside Gomez's vocals beautifully emulate similar vibes and emotional tone as his recent project, titled Blood Harmony.

Along with the new song, a black and white music video, which was promotionally shot on an iPhone, was also released. It features Gomez sitting, singing the song lyrics, first looking confused and shaken up, then finally coming to the realization that she needs to let go and accept her new chapter. While they definitely could have done more with the visual, it was still fascinating and portrayed how Gomez was feeling during a hard time in her life.

The last words of the song are, "And now the chapter is closed and done...and now it's goodbye for us." The way she sings these lyrics and her physical expression in the visual shows her transformation as not only an artist, but as a person, ready to accept themselves wholeheartedly.

This growth is important for everyone to accept individually and there comes a time in almost everyone's life that they have to change for the better. Anyone can listen to this song and not only enjoy it, but resonate with it, whether you are going through a similar situation or not.

I would give this release an 8 out of 10 stars.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
