The Weeknd is allegedly still inspired by Selena Gomez.
The singer, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, is apparently set to release a new track that name drops his famous ex.
The “Starboy” performer has registered a song called “Like Selena” with the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, E! News reports.
He also returned to Instagram after a hiatus Monday night to announce new music. “The fall starts tomorrow night,” he posted. In August, he tweeted that he was in “album mode.” The Weeknd did not specify if he will be releasing a single or a full album on Tuesday night.
This won’t be the first time The Weeknd crooned over his love of Gomez, 27. In March of 2018, he released the song “Call Out My Name,” which many speculate is about Gomez.
In the song, he sings, “I almost cut a piece of myself for your life.” In the summer of 2017, Gomez underwent a kidney transplant. Many think that Tesfaye reveals he wanted to donate one of his to her through this lyric.
Gomez, 27, and The Weeknd, 29, dated from January to October of 2017. At the time, sources said the couple ended things over scheduling difficulties.
After their split, Gomez rebounded with her on-again-off-again ex Justin Bieber, 25, for the last time. They parted ways in March 2018. In June, he got back together with his now-wife Hailey Bieber, 22.
Tesfaye also can’t keep away from one of his exes, Bella Hadid. When Gomez and The Weeknd broke up, he went back to Hadid, 23. The two have been linked since 2015. Though they allegedly broke up in August of 2019, they were seen together at Bella’s birthday party in October.
Hadid and Gomez got into a social media scuffle last week when Gomez commented on a photo that Hadid had posted of herself.
Gomez is no stranger to singing about old relationships. One of her latest songs, “Lose You to Love Me,” is about healing from her relationship with Bieber.
