After a sexy snap of Selena Gomez next to her former beau Justin Bieber was uploaded to Instagram over Independence Day weekend, the Twitterverse exploded with major Jelena buzz. But after listening to Selena Gomez’s track “Love Will Remember,” which just leaked Tuesday morning, two weeks before the release of her album Stars Dance, we can assure you Jelena is definitely no more – but that doesn’t exactly mean she won’t remember all their canoodling.
In the heartfelt ballad (below), which Gomez wrote herself, the Spring Breakers star sings about her bumpy relationship and eventual fizzling out with her former “Baby,” Justin Bieber. Throughout the song, Gomez is candid about her undying love for Bieber. She sings: “Now’s all we got/ And time can’t be bought, I know it inside my heart/ Forever will forever be ours/ Even if we try to forget, Love will remember.”
But what’s most riveting is the introduction to the tune: a lovey-dovey voicemail that totally sounds like Bieber’s voice. Whether the warbling message is actually from the Biebes, we’re not quite sure, but it does dazzle with a heavy dose of devotion.
The Bieber-esque voice says, “Hey babe, it’s me. I just want to call and tell you that I love you so, so, so, so much. I just wanted to let you know that you are my princess. You are worthy of all the love in the world. You are the love of my life.” Wow, Bieber! That’s so precious, it sounds like you stole a page out of The Notebook.
Although the song completely targets Bieber, it doesn’t do so maliciously… it’s actually done rather tastefully. The hit may not have a thumping dance beat like “Come and Get It,” but the slow track is surprisingly good and it’s really refreshing to hear a ballad from Selena. Damn Selena Gomez, you get me every time. And yes, we already have this track on repeat.
