It looks like there’s a beef brewing between The Weeknd and Justin Bieber.
It’s no secret that Bieber hasn’t enjoyed seeing former girlfriend Selena Gomez date The Weeknd. The “Love Yourself” singer still has a soft spot for Gomez, and his recent interview with TMZ finds him taking shots at The Weeknd in retaliation. “Hell no I can’t listen to a Weeknd song,” he commented, “that sh*t is wack.” Bieber also slighted the R&B star earlier this week, telling his friends his favorite song was “Starboy” before laughing about it on Instagram.
Now, its The Weeknd’s turn. On the latest single from XO signee NAV, “Some Way”, the singer offers several lyrics that seem to address Bieber in subliminal fashion. “I just took that chick, and I know you feelin’ some way/she just want a n*gga like me you feelin’ some way, way, way/She just want a n*gga like me I play no [way].” There’s a direct references to Bieber’s use of the word “wack”, as The Weeknd sings “Haters gonna say this sh*t is wack.”
“Some Way” also features lyrics that hint at The Weeknd’s past relationship with supermodel Bella Hadid, whom Gomez is friends with. In the song’s first verse, the 26 year-old sings “none of my girls, of my girls gon’ get over me.” Check out the full song below.
