The two, who were first romantically linked in February 2018 but never really confirmed their relationship, reportedly broke up in December 2018. However, thanks to the Oscar-nominated actress' new song, we may finally know now what went wrong in paradise.
"Wrong Direction," which is a somber ballad, touches upon broken hearts, massive egos and infidelity.
"Looking back I probably should have known / But I just wanted to believe that you were out sleeping alone,” sings a wistful Steinfeld.
The "Pitch Perfect" star also muses about not being able to reach her ex-lover's ego despite "standing on my tiptoes," before revealing, "Everyone thinks that you're somebody else/ You even convinced yourself."
Despite releasing such a heavy song to start off the new year, Steinfeld is looking ahead to a busy 2020. She will reportedly start filming the upcoming Disney+ series "Hawkeye" in July while her Apple TV+ series "Dickinson" will release its second season sometime this year.
