LISTEN: Selena Gomez’s New Song ‘Rule the World’

Is anyone really surprised that Selena Gomez’s first single off her upcoming album is a breakup song?

We sure aren’t.

The 20-year-old told MTV when a “big turn” (read: break up with Justin Bieber) happened to her right in the middle of recording an album, she applied the incident to her music.

“It was incredible […] because I’ve never done that before and it’s great,” she explained.

So when she sings “Our love was made to rule the world / You came and broke the perfect girl / Forget you ever knew my name” we can’t help but think this is one of those songs that was highly affected by the long-term love birds separating.

Listen to “Rule the World” and give us your thoughts.
