After much speculation that one of WeekendThe next new songs would apparently be about his old flame, Selena GomezIt turns out it was just a false alarm.

On November 25, the ASCAP website (American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers) showed that the "False Alarm,quot; singer had recorded a song titled "Like Selena."

Now, it seems that the "Wasted Times,quot; singer is no longer releasing "Like Selena." On Monday, December 2, several media reported that the ASCAP website deleted the page with information that the song was listed under the singer's real name, Abel Tesfaye, as a writer and interpreter.

As fans of pop culture will remember, he and the 27-year-old singer began dating in January 2017, but in October of the same year, the two decided to separate after only 10 months of being together. In addition, any Weeknd fan knows that the Canadian singer is no stranger to letting their life experiences, or their relationships, inspire their music.

In 2018, his album. My melancholy deal It was full of callbacks to his short-lived flame. Songs like "Call Out My Name,quot;, "Starboy,quot;, "Privilege,quot;, "Hurt You,quot;, "I Was Never There,quot; and "Wasted Times,quot; referred to Selena.

The news that The Weeknd is likely to release new music referring to his old flame is a surprise not only because it has been a while since the two were together, but also because since his separation from Selena, the 29-year-old singer has reconciled . with and again divided from the model Bella Hadid.

However, even if "Like Selena,quot; never reaches the ears of the public, fans will continue to speculate if the singer's new music is directed at Bella or Selena.

On the one hand, The Weeknd recently released their new single, entitled "Heartless,quot; and, according to the letter, it seems that he is attributing his ruptures to both women for his "ruthless,quot; mentality.

In the choir, The Weeknd sings about returning to his "old ways,quot; after feeling disconsolate and going through difficult times. "Why? Because I have no heart. And I have returned to my ways because I have no heart / All this money and this pain have left me without a heart / Low life for life because I have no heart."

He continues: "I lost my heart and my mind / I always try to do the right thing / I thought I had lost you this time / You just returned in my life."

Now, fans had no difficulty establishing parallels between that last letter since they recently met in October, two months after separating.

"Bella and Abel have been in contact for the past two weeks and have been working on their relationship," a source told E! News in October. "Initially, Abel approached Bella to register and greet her, and she agreed to meet him."

"The love between the two was not lost, Abel only had a few things he needed to work on and his focus was elsewhere," the source added. "They are in a better place at the moment, but they are trying to keep things low. They both want to be more private about it this time."

Now, with some new music already available and more on the way, fans will just have to wait and see if any of them will continue to refer to Bella or if we will also hear about Selena.
