Selena Gomez made her long-awaited return to music on Wednesday (Oct. 23) with the release of her new single “Lose You To Love Me.”
The vulnerable, emotive track dropped at midnight with just a few days’ notice, sending her passionate army of Selenators into a frenzy as they swarmed social media with their love for the star.
“This song is so powerful,” one fan tweeted. “I can’t stop replaying it and she is doing amazing on the charts as she deserves. Selena raising the bar.” Another praised Gomez’s strength, writing, “in awe that Selena has been through so much emotionally yet still came out the other side a strong independent queen.”
The singer’s first new solo release since 2018’s “Back To You” even seems to be winning over the haters, with one new fan admitting, “I’m not a Selena Gomez fan AT ALL but that new song she dropped is……” alongside a GIF of Ryan Tedder shedding tears.
Gomez’s BFF Taylor Swift also got in on the love-fest, sharing a screenshot of the track on her Instagram Stories and writing, “This song is a perfect expression of healing & my absolute favorite song she’s put out yet. A triumph. I love you so much @selenagomez.”
