Justin Bieber dropped his latest single, “Friends,” on Thursday, and fans understandably think it’s about Selena Gomez. The following passage, in particular, seems to be perfectly pertinent to Bieber’s ex, who’s since moved on with The Weeknd: “No, we didn’t end so good/But you know we had something so god/So I’m wondering’/Can we still be friends?” As E! notes, the track is Bieber’s first purely solo single since “Company” was released in 2016, and marks the pop star’s first return to the musical landscape since he canceled his Purpose tour in order to become more “sustainable.”
