Carly Rae Jepsen has revealed her heartbreak on new song Tonight I'm Getting Over You - but plans to keep the mystery man's identity a secret.
The 27-year-old, who has been dating fellow musician Matthew Koma, lamented about love gone wrong in the track, which is about a failed relationship.
"As an artist, it's fun to explore many sides and sort of go through my experience with love in a more personal way. I hope you haven't experienced it, but I certainly have had that relationship that is on-again, off-again and good and bad," she told People.
Carly - whose hit Call Me Maybe was up for a Grammy - admitted the song was inspired by her own experiences but insisted she won't reveal who her ex is.
"It's probably for the best that he doesn't know it's about him," she added.
The Canadian singer continued: "With this particular song, it was sort of that decision that even though the relationship is hot and cold, sometimes you've got to move on.
"I think it's important to have a bit of a connection to a song that you sing, and there's going to be some grittiness behind it, because otherwise it doesn't come across as sincere. So I do think I tap into those memories in a certain way, but it doesn't make me feel sad. It just makes me feel a little contemplative and in the moment."
