While fans have wildly speculated about the lyrical content corelating to Gomez's past relationship with Justin Bieber, the track fits into the narrative arc of the Netflix drama which Gomez is an executive producer on.
The Disney alum, 25, and Bieber, 24, first dated from 2011 to 2014, and sparked reconciliation rumors after they spotted together in October 2017. Us Weekly exclusively confirmed in November 2017 that the pair were back together.
By the chorus, Gomez belts out "When I'm lying close to someone else/ You're stuck in my head and I can't get you out of it".
Selena Gomez also sings about "unfinished business"-something she and Bieber know a lot about considering their back and forth bond-with the line "what's the point of hiding ... everybody knows we got unfinished business". "I want it to be a lovely message in a really complicated way-but really fun". The 13-episode first season caused controversy for its graphic depictions of rape and suicide, among other topics. The brunette beauty spoke to Apple Music about this new chapter of life and why it has taken so long for her to debut new original music. "I want it to be a attractive message in a really complicated way, but really fun", she told Zane Lowe before premiering the song on Beats 1 radio.
Selena Gomez is getting back into music! "I have so many exciting things coming". "And with this song, it's a very special record. I think that "Back to You" is more of my special project that I wanted to give to season 2". Selena Gomez dropped a new song titled "Back To You" on Thursday, May 10, and based on the lyrics, she might be singing about her on-again, off-again relationship with Justin Bieber.
