The Weeknd - Call Out My Name (Official Audio)


The Canadian singer has opened up about his former relationship.

Some fans think The Weeknd has addressed his relationship with ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez in his latest song ‘Call Out My Name’. 

The song, which is taken from the XO singer’s new EP ‘My Dear Melancholy’, contains lyrics that some people think are aimed directly at Gomez.

"We found each other / I helped you out of a broken place / You gave me comfort / But falling for you was my mistake," he said on the haunting song.

The Weeknd then sang: “I said I didn't feel nothing, baby, but I lied / I almost cut a piece of myself for your life / Guess I was just another pit stop / 'Til you made up your mind / You just wasted my time." 

Back in September 2017, Selena Gomez revealed that she received a kidney from her friend actress Francia Raisa.


I’m very aware some of my fans had noticed I was laying low for part of the summer and questioning why I wasn’t promoting my new music, which I was extremely proud of. So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering. It was what I needed to do for my overall health. I honestly look forward to sharing with you, soon my journey through these past several months as I have always wanted to do with you. Until then I want to publicly thank my family and incredible team of doctors for everything they have done for me prior to and post-surgery. And finally, there aren’t words to describe how I can possibly thank my beautiful friend Francia Raisa. She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me. I am incredibly blessed. I love you so much sis. Lupus continues to be very misunderstood but progress is being made.
