The Weeknd’s New Song Is All About Bella Hadid

The Weeknd released a new song, and his muse for it was Bella Hadid. Below we have maid an analysis of the lyrics to prove you that indeed he is singing about Bella Hadid.

You could currently be believing it, so I’ll simply proceed and also claim it: 2020 is toning up to be an incredible year for songs, individuals. Selena Gomez launched a CD, Justin Bieber started a CD, Demi Lovato’s currently produced some brand-new songs. Also, now, The Weeknd (Abel Tesfaye, if ya wanna be official) simply dropped his 4th workshop CD—God freakin’ bless.

It kind of do without stating, however, After Hours has bangers, you all. Remember when he launched “Heartless,” and also it was primarily everything about his previous connections with Bella Hadid, and even Selena Gomez? Welp, Abel is vocal singing forlornly concerning his ex-lovers yet once again, however this time around, it’s all concerning Bella. His current single/title track, “After Hours,” dives rashly right into the remorse he’s experienced in his time without her, and also, these verses are seriously informing. (Give the remainder of the CD a spin also, because it’s stuffed with a million various other Bella mentions.)

So what are you awaiting? Hit “play” and also place on your thinking cap, because we are most likely to study these verses in ? full ?!

Verse 1
Thought I almost died in my dream again (baby, almost died)
Fightin’ for my life, I couldn’t breathe again
I’m fallin’ into new (oh, oh)
Without you goin’ smooth (fallin’ in)
’Cause my heart belongs to you
I’ll risk it all for you
I won’t just leave
This time, I’ll never leave
I wanna share babies
Protection, we won’t need

In situation you aren’t entirely upgraded on Bella and also Abel’s partnership, you could have failed to remember that at one factor, Abel was practically prepared to ask Bella to wed him. “They’re madly in love with each other,” a resource informed Us Weekly back in 2018. “A proposal is on the horizon.”

These verses, which highlight Abel’s degree of dedication and also dedication to this woman (*cough* Bella *cough*), might stand for that single minute in his and even Bella’s timeline.

Your body next to me
Is just a memory
I’m fallin’ in too deep, oh
Without you, I’m asleep
It’s on me, only me, oh
Talk to me, without you, I can’t breathe

In August 2019, Bella and also Abel called their partnership quits, which is most likely what this knowledgeable describes. “They are in different places right now, physically and mentally,” an expert informed E! at the time. “Bella is prepping for her Fashion Week commitments, and Abel is working on his music and his upcoming acting debut.”

Verse 2
My darkest hours
Girl, I felt so alone inside of this crowded room
Different girls on the floor, distractin’ my thoughts of you
I turned into the man I used to be, to be
Put myself to sleep
Just so I can get closer to you inside my dreams
Didn’t wanna wake up ’less you were beside me
I just wanted to call you and say, and say

Chorus
Oh, baby
Where are you now when I need you most?
I’d give it all just to hold you close
Sorry that I broke your heart, your heart

Doesn’t it seem like Abel intends to come back with Bella right below? Because something informs me yes, yes it does.

Verse 3
Never comin’ through
I was running away from facin’ reality
Wastin’ all of my time on living my fantasies
Spendin’ money to compensate, compensate
’Cause I want you, baby
I’ll be livin’ in heaven when I’m inside of you
It was definitely a blessing, wakin’ beside you
I’ll never let you down again, again

Chorus
Oh, baby
Where are you now when I need you most?
I’d give it all just to hold you close
Sorry that I broke your heart, your heart
I said, baby
I’ll treat you better than I did before
I’ll hold you down and not let you go
This time, I won’t break your heart, your heart, yeah

Bridge
I know it’s all my fault
Made you put down your guard
I know I made you fall
I said you were wrong for me
I lied to you, I lied to you, I lied to you (to you)
Can’t hide the truth, I stayed with her in spite of you
You did some things that you regret, still right for you
’Cause this house is not a home

Wow, I don’t suggest to discuss Selena once again; however it’s quite tough to overlook when verses like these are looking you in the face, am I right? Selena and Abel dated from January to October 2017 and also got with each other essentially two months after he and also Bella called their partnership quits in November 2016. So yes, that timing certainly might have been to spite Bella—Abel started it, not I.

Chorus
Without my baby
Where are you now when I need you most?
I gave it all just to hold you close
Sorry that I broke your heart, your heart
And I said, baby
I’ll treat you better than I did before
I’ll hold you down and not let you go
This time, I won’t break your heart, your heart, no

Although Bella and also Abel are still separated today, there was some hope that they might be back with each other in October 2019. At Bella’s 23rd birthday celebration that month, Abel “was with her the entire night and they left together to go back to the apartment they both shared,” a resource informed E!.You might inform that they were certainly crazy and also they both looked extremely pleased being around each other…”

Sadly, however, an associate of Abel’s informed People that he went to the celebration as “just friends,” therefore squashing all our expect of a settlement. Don’t entirely rule it out; however—Bella and also Abel’s on and off the partnership (and also this tune, obviously) reveal the possibility is certainly there. Fingers crossed!
