The Weeknd dropped his My Dear Melancholy EP -- which we didn't even know about until earlier this week -- at midnight on Friday (March 30) and everyone's who's already heard the project can't stop talking about it.
Throughout the 6-song EP, the singer/songwriter is getting a lot of things off of his chest about a past love that everyone believes is Selena Gomez. The two dated from January 2017 to October 2017. When the relationship ended, it was very abrupt. Just a few days before their split went public, Gomez was spotted hanging out with her ex-boyfriend, Justin Bieber. Now, The Weeknd is using the hurt of seeing someone that he cared about so deeply to create music magic. If you're familiar with the star's sound during the very beginning of his career, then you can hear that The Weeknd has gone back to his roots and his day one fans are here for it.
The lyrics on My Dear Melancholy in its entirety will leave you speechless. It's very raw and vulnerable, as Weeknd discusses his heartbreak. However, there's one lyric in particular that has everyone in complete and utter shock. On the song "Call Out My Name," the artist starts, "We found each other / I helped you out of a broken place / You gave me comfort / But falling for you was my mistake/ I put you on top, I put you on top/ I claimed you so proud and openly/ And when times were rough, when times were rough/ I made sure I held you close to me."
A piece of the chorus also goes: "So call out my name (call out my name)/ Call out my name when I kiss you so gently, I want you to stay (want you to stay)/ I want you to stay, even though you don't want me/ Girl, why can't you wait? (Why can't you wait, baby?)/ Girl, why can't you wait 'til I fall out of love?..."
Then, Weeknd implies that HE WAS ALMOST GOMEZ'S KIDNEY DONOR! "I said I didn’t feel nothing baby, but I lied / I almost cut a piece of myself for your life," he sang.
And we were just like...
