Love Will Remember

Album: Stars Dance (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • Selena concludes her first solo album, Stars Dance, with this heartfelt ballad, which mournfully chronicles the end of her relationship with Justin Bieber. "That's the most personal track on the record, for sure. I think it's a sweet way of releasing it. It's not an aggressive approach to what people are probably expecting," she told InStyle magazine before adding quietly, "I'm sure he'll love it too."
  • An audio version leaked online on July 9, 2013 with a voicemail recording at the beginning of the song. Though there was no official confirmation, it was assumed that it was Justin Bieber who was saying, "Hey, Babe, it's me. I just want to call and tell you that I love you so, so, so much. I just wanted to let you know that you are my princess. You are worthy of all the love in the world. You are the love of my life." The recording was eventually cut from the official album version of the song.
  • The song was penned by frequent Selena Gomez & The Scene collaborators Rock Mafia along with David Jost and Desmond Child. Selena told Jam! Music: "'Love Will Remember' was actually a really fun track for me to actually go in with a producer and just work with them and the producer that worked on that album on that song, they've known me since I was 15 so they've been through a lot with me."
