My Dear Melancholy

My Dear Melancholy

My Dear Melancholy seems to follow the history of The Weeknd’s relationships with Bella Hadid and Selena Gomez chronologically.

The first song “Call Out My Name” is about letting go off the past relationship with Bella Hadid, forming a new one instead with Selena in “Try Me.” In “Wasted Time” he compares the two relationships, and then later blames his depression on Selena in “I Was Never There.” He then goes on to distance himself from Selena in “Hurt You” and then ends it by saying goodbye to Selena, declaring that he will be back to his old ways of drugs, alcohol and sex in “Privilege.”
