Charli XCX ‘Feels Good’ She Co-Wrote Selena Gomez’s ‘Same Old Love': ‘Meant so Much More’ After Justin Bieber Breakup
"One of my favorite songs that I've co-written that has ended up with another artist was 'Same Old Love,' which Selena Gomez sang. But I don't feel pressed about it, I feel good about it. I do love that song," Charli XCX tells PopCrush Nights.
"I think it meant so much more coming from her than it would have from me because I think she had just broken up with Justin [Bieber] at the time, " the "Boom Clap" singer adds, noting Gomez singing the track allowed listeners to connect with "that story."
Gomez and Bieber's love story defined a generation after they met in 2009. The exes dated on and off between 2010 and 2018.
