This Mashup Of Selena Gomez’s ‘Lose You To Love Me’ And Justin Bieber’s ‘Sorry’ Will Bring You To Tears

There’s no denying that while Fall has meant the ushering in of a new season for some, it has meant the official closing of a chapter for Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber fans. 

At the end of October, singer Gomez released her new track “Lose You To Love Me” which publicly put the final nail in the coffin of her relationship with Bieber. Of course, many fans had come to accept the ending of their relationship earlier last year when Bieber married his wife Hailey Baldwin.  Still, Gomez’s honest song about the emotional toll and ending of her relationship with Bieber seemed to be the true catharsis her devoted fans needed. The heartrending song meant fans could dust off their hands and move on from their obsession with the relationship. 

Now, after a week of the song’s release, a fan of the two artists has released a fan-made mashup of Bieber’s 2015 hit “Sorry” and Gomez’s new track that acts as a conversation between the former couple.

The new mashup was created by a  Los Angeles-based filmmaker, editor and music producer named Andy Wu

In the video description of the new mashup, Wu wrote that “It’s been 3 years since I made JELENA Megamix (2008-2016). Now their chapter is officially closed and done. I guess it’s time for everyone to move on.” Wu’s mashup which was released on October 27 and began going viral this week, now has nearly 1.5 million views and thousands of comments.

The new video mashup of Gomez and her ex combines Bieber’s 2015 hit “Sorry” with Gomez’s first No. 1 single “Lose You To Love Me.”

The mashup kicks things off with Bieber’s lyrics stacked onto the melody from Gomez’s new song. For his part, Bieber sings”You gotta go and get angry at all of my honesty / You know I try, but I don’t do too well with apologies / I hope I don’t run out of time could someone call a referee / ‘Cause I just need one more shot at forgiveness.”

The verse builds just as Gomez’s “Lose You To Love Me” lyrics begins and starts with “I saw the signs and I ignored it/ Rose-colored all distorted / Set fire to my purpose / And I let it burn / You got off on the hurtin’ / When it wasn’t yours.”

Fans of the couple have expressed excitement and approval over the new mashup. 

“This is literally the best mashup I’ve ever heard,” one user wrote in response to the song. 

One user commented that the mashup “literally sounds like I’m listening to both sides of the story, Selena’s and Justin’s.”

Fans of Bieber and Gomez know that the two have had an up and down relationship since 2011.

Bieber, 25, and Gomez, 27 began dating in 2011 and dated off and on until finally breaking things off in March 2018. Three months after their breakup US Magazine Three months later, Us Weekly confirmed that Justin had begun dating his ex-girlfriend Hailey Baldwin. The two married in September 2018 . 

Gomez has not personally confirmed that her song is about Bieber but did say that it was about personal experiences.

“Although the song ‘Lose You to Love Me’ was cowritten and a collaboration, Selena was very involved in writing and creating it, and the song is obviously about Justin,” a source told In Touch Weekly. “Her fling with The Weeknd did not inspire the song — their relationship was much more short-lived and not deep enough to inspire it.”

Speaking to radio show host Ryan Secrest during his radio show, Gomez addressed how fans have commented her “two months” lyric and pointed out that it has been a common thread in her relationships.

“I’ve actually experienced that a million times before,” Gomez told Secrest during an interview. “And that’s the unfortunate part about what I do. It’s all very real to me and I’m sure it’s all just entertainment for other people, but I think I had become numb to it. And it would be stupid of me if I didn’t acknowledge what I had felt because it would be inauthentic, because it’s everything I claim to be and do.”
