Pop royalty Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber have finally teamed up with the release of their new song ‘Stuck With U’. Although they’ve been friends for a while and share the same manager, this marks the pair’s first official collaboration together. Justin previously joined Ariana on stage as a special guest during her 2019 headline slot at Coachella.
The quarantine-inspired duet was announced last week, when they requested fans to help make the music video by sending in videos dancing with loved ones, pets, or even by themselves. Uhh you don’t have to ask me twice. Sharing a clip of the instrumental, Justin added “This is the prom song for everyone who can’t go to prom now. Tweet us videos of you in your dresses or suits having fun.”
Now it’s here and it’s even better than we imagined. The song is very much an ode to love and about making the most of the time you’re getting to spend with loved ones in isolation – and the music video is just as sweet. As expected, it features cute home videos from fans across the world and self-filmed scenes of Ariana with her (adorable) dogs and Justin with wife Hailey.
But that’s not all. Ari leads us to believe she’s riding quarantine out solo with just the company of her pets, before revealing a mystery man at the end. They cuddle and dance together, seemingly confirming her relationship with new boyfriend Dalton Gomez.

Eagle-eyed fans also spotted cameos from a bunch of famous faces including Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, Michael Buble, Jaden Smith, Kendall & Kylie Jenner, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chance the Rapper. Demi Lovato appears, as well, kissing her rumoured boyfriend Max Ehrich.

Of course, it’s all for a good cause and net proceeds from the sales and streams will be donated to First Responders Children’s Foundation to fund grants and scholarships for children of healthcare workers, emergency medical technicians (EMTs), paramedics, police officers and firefighters serving on the front lines during the global pandemic.
Dare we say something positive may have come out of this pandemic after all?
