“New York again in August / 10th ground balcony / Smoke is floating over / Jane and Greenwich road,” sings Selena Gomez, 27, firstly of “Memento,” one of many three bonus songs included within the deluxe model of Uncommon, launched on Apr. 9. Whereas the opposite two – “Boyfriend” and “She” – gave Selenators a purpose to bop their head on a Thursday, it was “Memento” that had Abelena followers freaking out. Although she doesn’t straight deal with her ex, The Weeknd, 30, by identify, Selena dropped a significant line within the refrain that had followers gagged in shock. “You’re giving me chills at 100 levels /it’s higher than capsules how you set me to sleep / Calling your identify, the one language I can converse / taking my breath, a memento you could hold.”
Catch that? Selena’s followers actually did, they usually drew a connection between her “Calling your identify, the one language I can converse” with “Name Out My Title,” a observe The Weeknd allegedly wrote about her on his now-famous breakup EP, My Pricey Melancholy. “Name Out My Title and Missed You by the Weeknd & Memento by Selena.

The Weeknd (Abel Tesfaye) dropped My Pricey Melancholy in March 2018, following his and Selena’s breakup in October 2017. Whereas they have been collectively, the 2 had a high-profile romance on the streets of Manhattan.

Some assume Abel carried the ache of this damaged coronary heart onto his new album, After Hours. In that “In Your Eyes,” he sings how he’ll “faux that I’m in the dead of night / I don’t remorse ’trigger my coronary heart can’t take a loss,” indicating a lover is two-timing him with one other. After Selena and Abel broke up, she reunited (for seemingly the final time) with Justin Bieber, and that breakup would encourage her greatest hit but, “Lose You To Love Me.” Plus, if all this wasn’t sufficient, followers assume “Missed You,” a observe on the deluxe version of After Hours, reference to a reference. “I mentioned your identify by mistake, performed it off like I’m simply confused / However I was frontin’, lyin’ to myself once I know the reality.”
