Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez broke up earlier this month and while neither have directly addressed the split yet, they are letting their feelings be known through song. Last week, Selena sang a cover of Justin Timberlake’s “Cry Me A River” during a UNICEF benefit concert (video below), and now Justin is releasing a break-up song of his own!
The song is titled “Nothing Like This” and is part of his new album Believe Acoustic, which drops tomorrow. “Nothing Like This” is one of three new songs on the album and while Justin hasn’t actually said it is about Selena (of course), it only makes sense. Plus, an insider has revealed to Us Weekly that it totally is.
“It tells the whole story about how he broke up with her, she begged him to take her back, and then he decided he was done for good,” the source explains. “This is his answer to Selena.”
Here are some “Nothing Like This” lyrics from the new Justin Bieber song off Believe Acoustic:
Gave you everything
Everything I had to give
Girl, why would you push me away
Lost in confusion
Like an illusion
You know I’m used to making your day
That’s in the past now
We didn’t last now
Guess that this is meant to be
Tell me was it worth it
We were so perfect
Baby, I just want you to see.”
Then, in the chorus, Justin seems almost as if he’s hoping to get back with Selena when he sings:
There’s nothing like us
There’s nothing like you and me
together through the storm
Justin and Selena had been on and off since they first split in early November of last year, but after a couple of reconciliations gone wrong, the two ended things for good in mid-November while vacationing together in Puerto Valarta, Mexico for the holidays.
Here is a video clip of Selena Gomez performing Justin Timberlake’s “Cry Me A River” for a private UNICEF benefit concert on Saturday, January 19. She reportedly told the audience, “I’ve been through a lot the past few months,” and, “It’s been weird and sad and cool.” Just before the song begins, which was Timberlake’s bitter kiss-off to ex Britney Spears, you can hear Selena say, “This song definitely speaks to me.”
