You can’t get anything past the Selenators! After Selena Gomez, 25, teased her new track with EDM producer, Marshmello, 21, her fans were quick to decode the meaning behind “Wolves”. According to fan theories, Selena’s new track may be a personal one about lupus. Why? — Well, fans have pointed out on Sel’s social media that the word “wolf” in Latin is “lupus.” And, we here at HollywoodLife.com tested the theory; meaning we went to Google Translator … and it checks out. So, will Selena’s new collab with Marshmello be her most emotional and personal song yet? We’ll find out on Oct. 25, when the track is released!

Fans also noted out that the timing is on point for Selena to release a track about the autoimmune disease, which she went public with in 2015. In Sept. 2017, Selena revealed that she underwent a life-saving kidney transplant as a result from her battle with lupus. She also revealed her donor, her best friend, actress Francia Raisa, 29. In the caption of a photo, which showed her and Francia in separate hospital beds, Selena said that she’s been longing to share her journey with fans. So, they believe that that time is now.

I’m very aware some of my fans had noticed I was laying low for part of the summer and questioning why I wasn’t promoting my new music, which I was extremely proud of. So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering. It was what I needed to do for my overall health. I honestly look forward to sharing with you, soon my journey through these past several months as I have always wanted to do with you. Until then I want to publicly thank my family and incredible team of doctors for everything they have done for me prior to and post-surgery. And finally, there aren’t words to describe how I can possibly thank my beautiful friend Francia Raisa. She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me. I am incredibly blessed. I love you so much sis. Lupus continues to be very misunderstood but progress is being made.

While the internet is buzzing with praise over Selena’s “bravery” to create a track about lupus, which she has said is a “very misunderstood” disease, Selena has yet to confirm the fan theory. Instead, she’s just been promoting the track with catchy teasers on Instagram and Twitter.

“Wolves” is the third single off her upcoming album, which follows her previous hits, “Bad Liar” and “Fetish”. Selena and Marshmello both co-wrote the track. Selena teased some of the lyrics on social media, Oct. 23, when she captioned a post that read: “I’ve been running through the jungle, I’ve been crying with the wolves.” All we know is, this will be a long 24 hours until we can hear “Wolves” in its entirety; but, it’ll be worth the wait, knowing Sel!

Wolves is out tomorrow morning @marshmellomusic
