Selena Gomez and Julia Michaels released their new tune "Anxiety" on Thursday, January 24, and fans are going wild! Their new song details mental health struggles as well as how to grapple with those issues. The song is off ofJulia's newest EP, "Inner Monologue Part I." Certain lyrics on the track also revealed Selena's struggles to sleep through the night.
Selena shared a photo of her and Julia on Instagram and dished about their new tune. "My sweet soul sister. Julia you have been a huge part of my life. You have taught me how to have courage when I have self doubt," the "Taki Taki" singer wrote.
"This song is extremely close to my heart as I’ve experienced anxiety and know a lot of my friends do too. You’re never alone if you feel this way. The message is much needed and I really hope you guys like it," the 26-year-old continued.
The lyrics suggest that Selena suffers from sleeping issues. She sings, "But all my friends, they don't know what it's like, what it's like/ They don't understand why I can't sleep through the night/ And I thought that I could take something to fix it/ Damn, I wish it, I wish it was that simple."
The next chorus has the two pop stars singing, "I got all these thoughts, running through my mind/ All the damn time and I can't seem to shut it off/ I think I'm doing fine most of the time/ I think that I'm alright, but I can't seem to shut it off."
Selena has been open about her mental health in the past. She entered a rehab facility last year after suffering an "emotional breakdown."
