Selena Gomez just unveiled a new track titled “Feel Me,” and it has fans speculating that Gomez could be singing about her former relationship with Justin Bieber.
Selena debuted the new song during the opening night of her Revival World Tour in Las Vegas on April 6, and fans were quick to note that the new track features some pretty telling lyrics that could easily relate to Gomez’s four-year on/off tumultuous relationship with Bieber.
A YouTube user, who goes by the name Carlos Knows, uploaded footage of Gomez’s first performance of the song to the video sharing site on May 7, which reveals Selena’s new track is full of lyrics that appear to be putting an unnamed former lover, that could be Justin, on blast.
Selena appears to sing some pretty telling lyrics in “Feel Me,” which calls out an ex for cheating and then begging their former partner to come back.
Gomez croons through lines like, “No one love you like I love you/I never cheated, never lied” and “Now you’re telling me you miss me/And I’m still on your mind.”
Selena then sings, “Every time your lips touch another I want you to feel me, I want you to feel me/Every time you dance with somebody, I want you to feel me, to feel me,” before scathing, “As long as you’re not with me, you’ll always be alone.”
After the song debuted online following Selena’s Sin City Revival kick-off concert, a slew of fans took to social media to speculate that “Feel Me” was all about Selena’s past relationship with Justin, with some even suggesting that Gomez was even “calling out” her former flame in the new song.
“Selena’s new song ‘Feel Me’ is so f****** shady. She called out Justin on everything,” Twitter user @__angelicah wrote on May 6, while @remykedevro speculated on the social media site that Gomez “dragged Justin so hard in her new song.”

Social media user @RuqaiyyahK also speculated that Selena’s new track was aimed at Bieber, posting screen shots of the lyrics to “Feel Me” and writing, “Selena Gomez should have called her new song ‘Justin Bieber'” because the track has Justin’s “name written all over this.”
Twitter user and Selena fan @gomezquality further suggested that Gomez’s new hit could be about Justin, tweeting out after Gomez debuted the song in concert on May 6 that “Selena Gomez ended Justin Bieber with her new song ‘Feel Me.'”
Hollywood Life is also reporting that “Feel Me” could be about Selena’s past relationship with Justin, as the site speculated that the track’s lyrics appear to suggest that Gomez “can’t stop thinking and writing music about her former beau.”
Selena Gomez has so far stayed mum on the inspiration behind her sultry new song, though she did admit in a new interview with Entertainment Tonight ahead of her first stop on her Revival world tour this week that she would not be singing her 2014 ballad “The Heart Wants What It Wants” because of its connection to Justin Bieber.
“There are things that I can’t do,” Gomez said of why the song will not be featured on her new set list, telling the site earlier this week that she “won’t be performing this on this tour because I don’t want to.”
“It’s like when you smell a scent and it takes you back to a place that maybe wasn’t the best place,” Selena added of the emotional ballad, which she previously revealed was about her on/off romance with Justin Bieber. “That stuff is a little bit more difficult.”
