The bass-heavy breakup tune dropped in the early hours of Thursday along with a vibrant new music video directed by Sophie Muller.
Adding to the popular fan theory that Lose You to Love Me was written about Gomez’s romantic feelings towards her old flame, Justin Bieber, many are now speculating that Look at Her Now serves as a followup.
One Twitter user wrote: “First she released Lose You to Love Me, and then Look at Her Now. I’m starting to think that those songs about her and Justin.”
And here’s my special gift to all of my ride or dies! I created this especially for you. Y’all have been through it all with me and I thank you for pushing me to be the best. Look At Her Now is out now. ❤️ https://t.co/aFDgALPxwl #ShotOniPhone #LookAtHerNow pic.twitter.com/cYBrStFt8f

The lyrics in the song’s verse reminisce about an old relationship, detailing its end and how the partner in question eventually found new love, which some fans are speculating to be Hailey Baldwin, Bieber’s new wife.
In the chorus, Gomez, 27, sings about moving on. Whether Look at Her Now was written about moving on from the Canadian pop singer specifically is unknown.
The lyrics read: “Of course she was sad / But now she’s glad she dodged a bullet / Took a few years to soak up the tears / But look at her now, watch her go.”
Gomez received criticism after dropping Lose You to Love Me earlier this week, with many calling her out on social media for singing about the married man.

In response to the backlash, Gomez said during an Instagram Live video: “I am grateful for the response that the song is getting. However, I do not stand for women tearing women down. I will never, ever be by that. So please be kind to everyone.”
“It doesn’t matter what the situation is,” she said. “If you’re my fans, don’t be rude to anybody, please. Don’t go off and say things that you just feel in the moment.
“My heart is only to release things that I feel are me and that I’m proud of.”
She also revealed that the song “was inspired by many things that have happened in my life since releasing my last album,” 2015’s Revival.
Since then, Gomez had been temporarily involved in a relationship with Toronto-based musician The Weeknd between her on-and-off relationship with Bieber, 25. Gomez and The Weeknd dated throughout 2017.
After breaking up, the Starboy singer went on to rekindle a romance with his former girlfriend, Bella Hadid. The two broke up once again earlier this year.
Though some fans toyed with the idea, most didn’t seem as interested in the Gomez/Weeknd theory as opposed to the “Jelena” one.
Here’s what some Twitter users had to say about Look at Her Now:
