Are The Lyrics To THE WEEKND's "Blinding Lights" About BELLA HADID or SELENA GOMEZ?
We haven't even figured out if The Weeknd's new song "Heartless" is indeed for his exes Bella Hadid and/or Selena Gomez and yet the R&B artist already has another puzzle for us to solve.
"Blinding Lights"—the second single off his upcoming fourth studio album Chapter VI—finds the Canadian hitmaker longing for a lost love. Despite the track's 80s vibe and synths, the heartbreak over a former lover becomes clearer upon intently listening to the lyrics. "I'm just calling back to let you know / I could never say it on the phone / Will never let you go this time," he croons.
And considering how The Weeknd and Bella has had a long history together, fans are convinced that this new sad boy track is about his on-off girlfriend. After all, the pair were earlier reported to want "to get back together at one point but for now are focusing on themselves and their projects" after the second split last August 2019.
As expected, Twitter was full of thank yous to Bella for bringing back the dark, brooding music.
This thanksgiving I’m thankful for Bella Hadid for inspiring this Weeknd era and Abel being back on his bullshit. They broke up again so his music could prosper. Never Forget.— nyoldman (@NYDoorman) December 1, 2019
