Justin Bieber song featuring Selena Gomez leaked? That’s exactly what happened late Saturday night. The song, seemingly titled “Strong,” has Bieber and Gomez trading verses about wishing things has worked out in the relationship. Listen to “Strong” below.

The new track, which was leaked on Drake’s OVO Sound Radio, kicks off with Gomez singing, “I’m just wishing you were better at communication,” noting that she’s sitting around “waiting. She also sings about “wishing I was better with the distance.” That’s when Bieber croons, “Yes, ’cause you’re the only one I’m really missing,” noting that “nobody else would be forgiving.”

Gomez later sings, “I’m wishing I was better at this damn thing,” and “’cause it’s just been too long and I can’t change.” Bieber then goes into the refrain, “Gottta be strong” and “What should I do? Where should I go? …Will I get over this, over this?”

Neither Gomez nor Bieber have commented on the song, though fans of theirs have been dissected and analyzed each and every word. The leak of “Strong” come just a month before the release of Bieber’s new album “Purpose,” and a couple of weeks after Gomez’s “Revival.”

Recently, Bieber told Complex about his past relationship with Gomez, “We were so in love. Nothing else mattered. We were all about each other,” but noted, “Your full identity can’t be in that person. My identity was in her. Her identity was in me.” And last week, Gomez told Refinery29 about Bieber, “I got my heart broken,” but there’s “no anger” now, just “closure in a very good, healthy way,” adding, “I am proud of his journey.
