You may think for singer-songwriter Selena Gomez love is only equal to pain. But think again. Is that so? It’s Gomez’s latest new song ‘Let somebody Go’ of which she has recently teased a snippet. The line is from the song which she has sung.
The new creation is a collaboration with Coldplay that will be featured on their upcoming album ‘Music of the Spheres’.
According to newsreports, the song is the latest release for Gomez, who is currently starring in Hulu’s ‘Only Murders in the Building’ alongside Steve Martin and Martin Short.
When I called the mathematicians and I asked them to explain. They said love is only equal to the pain,” Gomez sings on the track, as Coldplay frontman Chris Martin provides backing vocals.
Why is love is only equal to the pain?
Gomez posted a visual to share the news with her followers, which featured a re-imagined, technicolor version of planet Earth rotating in space, surrounded by dozens of stars. The brief video also gave fans a sneak peek of the track, on which the “Lose You to Love Me” singer and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin sing, “When I called the mathematicians and I asked them to explain/ They said love is only equal to the pain over a sweeping pop instrumental background.

She released a collaboration song with Colombian singer Camilo called ‘999’ in August and put out a Spanish-language EP, ‘Revelacion’, in March. Her last English-language record, ‘Rare’, came out in 2019, and she’s also been busy with her Rare Beauty line and her Rare Impact Fund, which advocates for easier access to mental health treatment.
The latest tease comes on the heels of the release of ‘My Universe’, Coldplay’s recent collaboration with BTS. “Today has been one of the most fun days for me in the studio ever,” Martin said in a documentary about the making of the song.
He further added, “It’s so different and it’s been very difficult to get here, to Korea. We’ve been very lucky with people allowing us to come in for two days just to record, and it was quite a stressful journey, and I was a little bit nervous. I’ve never met BTS before.”
Coldplay sang ‘My Universe’ at Global Citizen Live in New York City last month in a performance that featured a video of BTS performing their verses behind Martin on stage.
As per news sources, both songs will be featured on ‘Music of the Spheres’.
