Selena Gomez debuted her newest single (and the first of 2018) “Back To You” on Thursday (May 10). The ballad — which will appear on the soundtrack for the second season of 13 Reasons Why — finds Gomez singing sweetly about a previous relationship and how she’d “do it all again.”
After hearing the three-minute track, Selenators instantly speculated that it was about her past beau Justin Bieber, whom Gomez has dated on and off since 2011. While there was also minor speculation that the song might be about The Weeknd (né Abel Tesfaye) — who Gomez dated in 2017 — many of the reactions to “Back To You” revolve around Bieber.
