Fans think The Weeknd is still taking shots at Selena Gomez with his new collaboration with Nicki Minaj on the song Thought I Knew You.
Nicki Minaj recently dropped a surprise album, Queen, and The Weeknd is one of the many singers who have collaborated with the singer. The two worked together on a song called I Thought I Knew You, which fans think is a direct attack at The Weeknd’s ex Gomez. The couple broke up in November after around 10 months of dating, and both moved on with their respective exes: Gomez with Justin Bieber and The Weeknd with Bella Hadid.
In the song, The Weeknd sings about being in a confusing relationship where his lover has deceived him and made out to be someone different than their reality. The Weeknd sings:
“Honestly, I think this s**t excites you (excites you) / All that drama that you’re tied to (oh yeah) / You play the victim every time too / That shit came back and hit you times two.”
In another part of the song, he also says, “Tell me why you let me come inside for real / Nevermind, you were never mine for real / Hit my line, I’ma hit decline for real / I ain’t trying for a second time for real.”
Fans were quick to catch on to the hints.

This is not the first time The Weeknd has been accused of shading Gomez. A few weeks ago, he posted a picture in the caption of which he gave credits to Hadid. It was the first time the singer acknowledged his ex-girlfriend, and it coincidentally happened to be right on Gomez’s birthday.
Despite the accusations to Gomez, The Weeknd seems to have moved on from her completely and has moved back into his old relationship with Bella Hadid.
