Image Group LA/ABCFans hoping to have a hot take of The Weeknd‘s whirlwind romance with Selena Gomez will have to wait. The artist has scrubbed all traces of his rumored tell-all single “Like Selena” from every corner of the internet.
Rumors of the song’s meaning started brewing on November 25 when the three-time Grammy winner registered a song titled “Like Selena” with the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers. E! News reports that the song was listed under The Weeknd’s real name, Abel Tesfaye.
The 29-year-old registered himself as the upcoming track’s writer and performer, which prompted rumors that “Like Selena” was a diss track directed at his old flame. The Weeknd previously referenced Selena in several singles, such as “Starboy” and, most obviously, “Call Out My Name.”
However, all evidence of “Like Selena” vanished on Monday when the ASCAP took down the page and all information pertaining to the song. It is unknown if the song has been scrapped for good or if it’ll resurface in The Weeknd’s upcoming fourth studio album.
Gomez and The Weeknd famously dated between January and October 2017. The pair broke up following the “Lose You to Love Me” singer’s kidney transplant.
