The two Canadian pop sensations have released their first song together and sing about the pitfalls of being a celeb.
Canadians Shawn Mendes (22) and Justin Bieber (26) teamed up and released a song together. “Monster” was released this Friday and is the first joint project between the two singers. The YouTube video for the emotional song generated more than a million views within three hours.
Earlier this week Mendes spoke in an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music about his friendship with Bieber and why the track is coming out right now: “I’ve been working on this song for a long time, but I was never satisfied. Suddenly I heard him again and knew that he was something for Justin and me, ”he says on the podcast.
He called Justin and said, “Look, I have this song. It’s about how society lifts stars into the sky and then watches them crash. ” The “Lonely” singer agreed directly, also because he could identify with the text.
«He was like Elvis to me»
The first rumors about a collaboration between the two Canadians sparked back in August. Together with Justin’s wife Hailey Bieber (23), the two were photographed by paparazzi in front of a music studio in Los Angeles. At the “Capital Breakfast” interview in early October, Mendes was asked about the pictures.
The “Wonder” singer said that the friendship between him and Biebs developed during the corona pandemic. Justin has been one of his greatest role models since early childhood.
