A fanmade mashup between Gomez’s tender ballad “Lose You to Love Me” and Bieber’s apologetic 2015 hit “Sorry” recently went viral, and it's giving Selenators and Beliebers alike the feels. In just a week’s time, the song, published music producer Andy Wu, has already reached over 1.3 million views on YouTube.
Paired with black and white visuals from both pop stars' respective music videos, the project reopened a lot of old wounds for followers invested in the sensation that once was Jelena. The clip ties in lyrics from both post-breakup records, retelling, in a way, the rise and fall of Jelena, from happy beginnings to sad endings.
"It feels like I am hearing both side of the story at the same time," one user commented, as another lamented: "RIP justin for losing such a beautiful soul like Selena. Honestly speaking i feel the loss for him."
For context, the "Cold Water" musician and Gomez endured eight years of an on-and-off romance that officially ended in March 2018. Bieber wrote "Sorry" amid their rocky relationship, and — just as fans guessed — confirmed the track was written as an apology to Gomez.
The mashup comes not long after the Disney Channel alum hinted at hoping "the individual" who broke her heart hears "Lose You to Love Me," but added "my intentions are never evil. … I can be a bit snappy but I always want to come from a place that’s genuine, and when I feel like some things haven’t been said then I get to turn that into art."
