Ariana Grande & Justin Bieber’s “Stuck With U” Song Review: Shows The Power In Distance
Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber have created the ultimate collaboration with all-the-feels during quarantine with their new single “Stuck With U.”
In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, there have been cancelations of concerts, tours and music video filming for all artists in the United States and worldwide. It has left us music-lovers missing many of our favorite celebrities, curious about what could be next. This didn’t stop Grande and Bieber who have taken advantage of the isolation.
Grande and Beiber revealed to their fans just what they’ve been doing in this quarantine by filming themselves doing fun activities in their free time and with their loved ones in the music video for the single. Even more surprising, we are able to see videos of fans and other celebrities in their homes too. This song is not just intimate and high-spirited – its steady pace gives it a soothing feeling. It ended up going to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 last week and remained in the spot for some time.
There are a wide range of relationships we get to see in the video – families, friends, partners and even pet owners from all around the world. This helps to express the emotional themes of the song. Even so, the video includes essential workers and those working on the frontlines of this on-going pandemic. Some fans can be seen in the video displaying their appreciation for the workers using signs and notes, encouraging fans to ‘stay home’ and saying ‘thank you’ to them.
At the end of the video, Grande and Bieber revealed that “all net proceeds and sales gained from the song streams will fund grants and scholarships for children of first responders who have been impacted by COVID-19 in partnership with the First Responders Children’s Foundation.”
The song represents a delightful new sound, especially right for right now.
