Listen up: Selena Gomez has released a new single and music video! Last night the star debuted "The Heart Wants What It Wants," which gets ultra personal and addresses relationship troubles the 22-year-old has had in the past.

The moody black-and-white video opens with a tearful introduction by Gomez where she discusses being let down by an old love, and the lyrics go on to reveal more details of her hurt:

You got me sippin' on somethin' / I can't compare to nothin' / I've ever known / I'm hopin' / That after this fever I'll survive / I know I'm acting a bit crazy / Strung out, a little bit hazy / Hand over heart, I'm prayin' / That I'm gonna make it out alive," Gomez sings on the track. "Save your advice, 'cause I won't hear / You might be right, but I don't care / There's a million reasons why I should give you up / But the heart wants what it wants / The heart wants what it wants

Prior to releasing the song, the singer posted the following message to Instagram earlier this week alongside a photo of her in the studio, "As I have a last listen, I thought a lot about my year. I thought a lot about my voice. And after a year of holding on. I think it's time to start sharing. #November."
