And the track definitely conveys Bieber's pain post-breakup.
After all, it features such lyrics as "Nothing can ever, ever replace you/Nothing can make me feel like you do" and "Gave you everything/Everything I had to give/Girl, why would you push me away?"
Sure enough, while talking to Billboard, Bieber admitted to being pretty heartbroken.
"I'm not in the happiest place that I've ever been," he told the magazine in its latest issue. "I'm trying to get through what I'm going through. I have my really close friends to cheer me up and keep me going."
Bieber also insisted that when it comes to his breakup with Gomez, don't believe everything you read.
"There's so many rumors," he said. "People say I call Selena every day and she won't pick up the phone or I'm chasing her down, and these are all fake stories."
But despite all the media attention (true or otherwise) on both his personal and professional life, Bieber maintains a positive attitude.
"I don't have any regrets," he said. "I live and learn. My mom says, 'You got to learn the hard way, don't you?' That's me. I learn the hard way. But it's about how I pick myself up and be better and stronger."
