    Coincidence? I think NOT.

    Selena Gomez is back with more bops, y'all.

    Seriously, she's one of our current pop princesses and deserves more credit, but we'll talk more about that another time.

    On Thursday, Selena released three new songs from the deluxe edition of her latest album, Rare.

    However, the main song that's on everyone's Twitter fingers is "Souvenir," which fans believe is about Selena's ex, The Weeknd.

    If you're a pop culture junkie, then you know that Selena dated The Weeknd for 10 months back in 2017 before rekindling her on-again, off-again relationship with Justin Bieber.

    Well, according to Selenators — that's what her fans are called, I swear I didn't make that up — the lyrics in "Souvenir" are a not-so-subtle nod to the "Starboy" singer.

    SOUVENIR IS ABOUT THE WEEKND JUST HOW CALL OUT MY NAME WAS ABOUT SELENA 👀 THIS PROVES THEY REALLY LOVED EACH OTHER 🥺❤️ #SelenasBoyfriend #RareDeluxe #RareDeluxeOutNow

    Eagle-eyed fans took notice of the "calling your name" reference, which is a similar lyric featured in The Weeknd's 2018 song "Call Out My Name":

    That's all it took to convince them that the song was an ode to her ex:

    The Weeknd: “Won’t you call out my name?” Selena: “Calling your name, only language I can speak.” And I oop 👀 #RareDeluxeTomorrow #Souvenir

    Suddenly, there's a call for Abelena (again, I promise I didn't make that up) to get back together:

    when abel and selena were together they were both in a rough complicated state in their lives and they broke up and have had time to heal and find themselves and now abelena will rise PERIODTTT

    Apparently, The Weeknd has a song on his new album called "Missed You," which also mentions something about "calling his name," because evidently that's his and Selena's ~thing~:

    E!

    When The Weeknd said “Call out my name” Selena felt that

    I mean, points were made.

    Thinking about how selena dedicated fuck you songs to beiber but love songs to the weeknd... tells me alot about who wanted her as a trophy and which one actually cared about her. #SelenasBoyfriend

    But nothing has been confirmed. So that's all I have for you now. If you're still reading this, God bless you. Stream Rare for clear skin. K, bye.
