The Weeknd dropped a surprise EP My Dear Melancholy late last night, and Twitter has already turned into a social group cry.

For the album, Abel delivers a dark and emotional six track project, an antithesis of his shiny, star-studded Starboy. Many fans are calling this the “old Weeknd.” The full cut production assists from French artist Gesaffelstein.

Otherwise, the album is straight Abel putting his heart on his sleeve opening up about his highly public relationship and break up with signer Selena Gomez and model Bella Hadid.

With lyrics like, ‘I said I didn’t feel nothing, baby, but I lied / I almost cut a piece of myself for your life / Guess I was just another pit stop ‘Til you made up your mind,’ he appears to reference Gomez’s kidney transplant and reveals he almost gave one of his to her.  If that doesn’t make you want to curl up in the dark pondering if you text your ex or not, what will?

It’s Weeknd season, and countless fans have swarmed onto social media celebrating the album, expressing their feels, thanking Selena Gomez, and more. See below how the Internet is reacting to The Weeknd’s My Dear Melancholy EP.

Some fans believed the “old Weeknd” is back.

Some are thanking Selena Gomez for motivating Abel to create the EP.

Almost all fans are in their feels.
