Ooh, we are totes LOVING Nick Jonas' new song, "Area Code," which he shared with the world over the weekend on Soundcloud, tweeting, "mood" to introduce it.

Moody, indeed. Nick is killing this new sexy vibe.

Here's the interesting part though – there's totally a Selena Gomez reference in the lyrics that people are going cray over.

Nick sings: "You say I never been good for you/You can't deny I gave it good to you." Hmm. Sounds a bit like a shoutout to Sel's song "Good For You." Just sayin'.

While we thought maybe this was just a coincidence, Nick favorited a couple of fan tweets about the song having a Selena reference. Did he just confirm it's about Sel? As you know, Nick and Selena were spotted together at a VMAs after party recently, looking super happy, while he whispered in her ear. Oh to be a fly on that wall.

As for Selena's reaction to Nick's song being about her, according to, a source says, "She had absolutely no idea that he was going to drop that into a record and is a little surprised Nick would do something like that..."

The insider added that "Selena isn't too disheartened. In fact, she thinks it's fair game. It would be hypocritical of her to slam someone for writing about their past love-life experiences considering she's written songs directed at her former boyfriends."

What do you think about Nick's new song? While we didn't initially read into the lyrics being about his famous ex-girlfriend, we've gotta think that Nick favoriting those tweets is pretty damn telling, right?
