Selena Gomez is BACK! She has teased that a new song was coming for a few weeks, and as promised, it was released today.

The track, which is titled "Bad Liar," has quite a resemblance to the 1977 Talking Heads' classic song, "Psycho Killer." In fact, the band's lead singer, David Byrne actually liked the track so much that he "wholeheartedly" gave his permission for Gomez's sample. 

"Bad Liar" seems to describe that feeling when you're falling for somebody new who is unavailable. So, naturally, fans are already wondering if this song could possibly be about The Weeknd? Selena first met The Weeknd when he was still dating Bella Hadid

The lyrics include: 

I was walking down the street the other day
Trying to distract myself then I see your face 
Ooh, you got someone else

We'll let you decide for yourself if that is about the Weeknd. We're just excited to hear new music from Selena. This is her first solo single since "Kill 'Em With Kindness" was released from the Revival album in 2015. 

Gomez has been super busy this year. She collaborated with Kygo on his track "It Ain't Me" earlier this year. She also was an executive producer on the hit Netflix series, 13 Reasons Why.
