Last Friday, Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber took to social media, to announce their collaboration for charity. For years now, fans have been pleading for the two singers to create and release a song together.
Well, the time has finally come. Grande and Bieber partnered with SB Projects (Scooter Braun Projects) to release “Stuck With U”. The song is now available on all streaming platforms, and all proceeds from the song are going to benefit the First Responders Children’s Foundation. The foundation serves to provide financial relief to children, whose first responder families have been affected by COVID-19.
The song talks about quarantine in a positive way. It’s all about being happy to be stuck at home with the people you love and care about.
“Got all this time in my hands. Might as well cancel our plans. I could stay here forever. So, lock the door and throw out they key. Can’t fight this no more, it’s just you and me. And there’s nothin’ I, nothin’ I, I can do. I’m stuck with you, stuck with you, stuck with you.”
The song was released at midnight last night, and it’s already trending all over social media. One fan tweeted out a humorous (but relatable) comment about the song:
“Stuck With U is the best thing that’s happened since 2019”, another fan tweeted. Honestly, I might have to agree with that statement.
There’s also a beautiful, yet emotional music video that was uploaded to YouTube. The video features Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande. However, it also features their significant others, as well as some fans. Since production is currently shut down, due to COVID-19, making a standard in-person music video wouldn’t be the most ideal at the moment.
So, to keep things safe, Grande recorded her part of the video with boyfriend, Dalton Gomez, at her home. They even shared an endearing kiss. Grande’s puppy also made a sweet little cameo.
Meanwhile, Bieber recorded his part with wife/best friend, Hailey Bieber, at their home. They also had fans send in short videos of them dancing to the song with their significant others, best friends, parents, siblings, and even their pets. It was heartfelt, wholesome, and so very needed during these tough times.
At the bottom of the video, they linked a fundraiser for the First Responders Children’s Foundation. Since the song released, the foundation has already raised over $10,000 and counting.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ll be heading back to YouTube to rewatch the video over and over again, until my internet breaks.
