  • Selena Gomez released a music video for her new song "Single Soon."

  • The video includes a nod to "Sex and the City" heroine Carrie Bradshaw.

  • In season six of the HBO show, Bradshaw is dumped by her boyfriend via Post-It note.

Selena Gomez included a reference to everyone's favorite single gal in the music video for her new song "Single Soon."

The music video, which premiered on Friday, shows Gomez getting ready to go out. But before she meets up with her friends, she leaves behind a Post-It note stuck to an Xbox controller: "I'm sorry, I can't, don't hate me," it reads.

The scene plays while Gomez sings about various methods of breaking up with her boyfriend: "Should I do it on the phone? / Should I leave a little note / In the pocket of his coat? / Maybe I'll just disappear / I don't wanna see a tear."

It's a clear reference to an infamous breakup in "Sex and the City," the beloved HBO sitcom starring Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie Bradshaw — except Gomez's version is gender-swapped.

In the show's sixth and final season, Bradshaw is dumped by her boyfriend, who leaves a Post-It note with the exact same phrase. ("The motherfucker's concise," jokes her best friend, Samantha Jones.)

"Sex and the City" — as well as the reboot "And Just Like That" — follows Bradshaw as she navigates adulthood, particularly through the lens of dating. Throughout her 30s, Bradshaw chronicles her hookups and heartbreaks as a columnist for a New York City newspaper.

Gomez, 31, has also been open about her struggles with romance. She said she wrote her No. 1 hit "Lose You to Love Me" because she was "haunted by a past relationship that no one wanted to let go of." Her latest album, 2020's "Rare," features a myriad of breakup songs that made Taylor Swift cry.

A few years ago, the Rare Beauty founder joked that all her exes think she's "crazy" and getting married is "never gonna happen."
