Shawn Mendes has hit up Justin Bieber for an epic collaboration on his new song ‘Monster’, this comes after Bieber had recently collaborated with Ariana Grande for a second time on their hit duet “Stuck With U” which debuted at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 and also won the award for “Best Music Video from Home” at the 2020 MTV Music Video Awards
This will be the second single Shawn Mendes has released this year because earlier this year in October 2, 2020 Shawn had released another single named “Wonder”, which serves as the album’s lead single from his upcoming fourth studio album ‘Monster’
During an interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe Shawn said “I think I was coming off the back of a couple of big songs and definitely just so driven by my ego and just feeling like something in this feels not right and it’s always resonated with me.”
“This song has always resonated with me and it just never found its way out. And now all of a sudden I was listening to it one day, and I just started my relationship with Justin. It just started forming properly in the last three months. And I called him and I was like, ‘Look, I have this song. It’s kind of going there.’ We go there.”
He continued saying “It’s about how society can put celebrities up on a pedestal and watch them fall and it seems to be this entertainment thing. And it’s hard,”
Adding to this, he also said “And his heart fell deep into it. And him and I, even yesterday, were on the phone for an hour and had the deepest conversation, I think, about so much. And it just felt really nice because it was a full circle moment for me, this guy who was the reason I started singing. I was nine when “One Time” came out, and I completely was all in. He was Elvis to me. And to come back around and to have this very human to human conversation with him and his truth to come into that song and my truth to be there, it feels like one of the most special songs I’ve ever wrote. And the more I listened to it and the deeper I get into it, this is not just about celebrities. This is the human experience.”
