The song, which was written and recorded in the midst of the global COVID-19 pandemic, is a charitable single and the proceeds of the song will go to the First Responders Children’s Foundation which, according to Grande’s Instagram, goes to “fund grants and grants for children of first responders who have been affected by COVID-19. “
Before the song and video were released today, Bieber and Grande used social media to ask fans to submit videos. “Help us make the #StuckwithU video,” Bieber wrote on Instagram a week ago. “I want to see you have fun in quarantine.” This is the prom song for everyone who can’t go to the ball now. An instrumental version of the song was available online for fans to dance.
The result is a romantic doo-wop duo between the two stars as they harmonize on the chorus: “So lock the door and throw the key / I can’t fight this anymore, it’s just you and me / and there is nothing i can do nothing / i’m stuck with you, stuck with you, stuck with you. “
The final cut of the video clip combines clips submitted by fans of slow-dancing people dressed in ball gowns with celebrity cameos from Michael Bublé, Kendall Jenner, Chance the Rapper, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jaden Smith.
In addition to sharing the same management, Bieber and Grande have been friends for several years and sometimes joined on stage to perform. Last year, Bieber introduced himself to Grande’s coach Coachella to perform his hit “Sorry.” It was the first time Bieber had performed live since canceling the remaining dates for his Purpose tour in 2017, and in his YouTube series, Justin Bieber: seasons, several people said that this performance was the moment that triggered Bieber’s return to music. This year Bieber released their fifth studio album, Changes.
