Selena Gomez is coy about naming exactly which boy she will be singing about on her upcoming album – but she’s giving some big clues.

"My favorite song that I've written is called 'I'm Sorry,'" the Disney Channel star, who is reportedly dating Nick Jonas, tells TWIST magazine. "It's about a boy I kind of fell for, but he couldn't let his ex-girlfriend go, and it was really difficult."

Jonas, of the Jonas Brothers, formerly dated Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus, who used their relationship as inspiration for her own pop song, "7 Things."

Of having to compete with the unnamed guy's ex-girlfriend, Gomez says, "I felt like in a way, I wasn't good enough."

The autobiographical lyrics tell the story of encouraging her beau to move forward. "The song is basically me saying that I'm sorry that it didn't work out or that she used to be who she was," says the Wizards of Waverly Place star. "But you have to let me in and you have to know that I'll do everything I can to make you happy and be the best I can be."

Gomez, 16, says the personal tune will likely be the first song she records for her album and "probably be the only ballad on the record."

"I want the other stuff to be really fun," she adds. "But that is probably going to be the most heartfelt one because it was the hardest time for me. That story actually happened to me."
