Shawn Mendes and Justin Bieber link up for the powerful new single “Monster”. The first collaboration by the two young megastars is an anthemic one that finds the two lash out at critics.
Mendes and Bieber position themselves and recall their past that shaped their present. Confronting the demons of fame, the Canadian superstars come face-to-face with the depths of their emotions.
The two hint at the pressures that come with being in the limelight and adapting to an image that isn’t as easy. Tracing back their steps, the two call out expectations and the standards of a “perfect” image, and how they just want to break free.
Co-written by Mustafa, it’s a melancholic, and melodic anthem that is necessary for the culture that is so quick to cancel artists when they tend to make a mistake. Check out the song above.
