In the up-tempo single, Selena sings about a wanting an unfaithful ex to feel sorry for the way they treated her. “No one loved you like I loved you/Never cheat never lie/Never put no one above you/I gave you space and time,” she sings in the opening lines of the song as she talks to the lover who now misses her.

“Every time your lips touch another/I want you to feel me/Every time you dance with somebody/I want you to feel me.” It didn’t take long for fans to get the single on the YouTube’s most trending video list. There is no telling who Selena is singing about on the song.

At the time of its released, Selena had ended things with on-again, off again boyfriend Justin Bieber. In 2016, she was linked to Samuel Krost. The Rare singer’s last boyfriend was singer The Weeknd. Selena marked her return to music – following her four-year break – with the release of her latest album Rare in February.

The Disney Channel album shared that the album and the songs were all deeply personal and the result of healing. Earlier this month, the Dance Again singer got candid about the “emotional abuse” she endured and channeling that into her new music. “I think that it's something that ... I had to find a way to understand it as an adult," Selena told NPR. "As much as I definitely don't want to spend the rest of my life talking about this, I am really proud that I can say I feel the strongest I've ever felt and I've found a way to just walk through it with as much grace as possible." She continued: "I've found the strength in it. It's dangerous to stay in a victim mentality. And I'm not being disrespectful. I do feel I was a victim to certain abuse."
