Selena Gomez knows all about heartbreak and has used her experiences for her art. 

The “It Ain’t Me” singer released two new songs recently, both of which were inspired by her past relationship with fellow singer, Justin Bieber. 

While Selena has been featured on several songs, the last time she released her own new music was in 2017.

“This song was inspired by many things that have happened in my life since releasing my last album,” she said of the first single “Lose You to Love Me.” “I thought it was important to share the music, as I know many can relate to the fact that the road to self-discovery generally comes through the scars in one’s life. I want people to feel hope and to know you will come out the other side stronger and a better version of yourself.”

Just a day later, Selena shared another new song, along with a music video. 

Sophie Müller directed the video for “Look At Her Now” which was co-written by Selena, Julia Michaels, Justin Tranter, and Ian Kirkpatrick. 

“I felt having these two songs released back to back completed the story of how one can rise no matter what challenges life brings,” Selena said. “Turning off the noise and living your life on your terms.”

And look how far she’s come!
