Beliebers around the world shrieked in unison last night, April 30, when Justin Bieber took to Twitter to tease that a surprise is coming. And now, we officially have some answers. Turns out, the “Yummy” singer has been working with Ariana Grande on a little something special, and fans can expect the project’s arrival on Friday, May 8.
So, how did this all come about? Great question! It all started when Justin tweeted that a special announcement would be happening today, May 1, at 10 a.m. PST. And ever since, fans of the “Intentions” crooner have been speculation about what the surprise could possibly be.

“La Bomba?” one fan asked, alluding to one of the songs in Justin’s Seasons docuseries that didn’t quite make it onto the album. “DO NOT PLAY W US,” another fan demanded. And someone just went right ahead and said what we’re all thinking right about now: “I just want Hailey to be pregnant.”
But alas, that one single tweet was all the pop star offered. That is, until Grande, who’s also managed by music mogul Scooter Braun, chimed in with a quote tweet of her own. “See you there everybody,” the “7 Rings” songstress wrote along with a black heart.
see u there everybody 🖤 https://t.co/D5KPxIwZ3L

Unsurprisingly, Grande’s fans were quick to chime in with their own questions, thoughts, and concerns. “ARE WE FINALLY GETTING THE COLLAB YOU GUYS HAVE BEEN PROMISING SINCE 2014 OR,” one fan wrote. “You better not be playing with us,” someone else added.
Turns out, the pop stars really aren’t playing. At 10 a.m. PST, as promised, Justin and Ariana announced that their song, “Stuck With U,” will drop next Friday, May 8. “Here is the announcement,” Justin wrote. “Very excited because we have finally done it. And it’s really good. I’m releasing a new song #StuckwithU with my friend @ArianaGrande next Friday on May 8th.”

But wait, there’s more. The track is actually for a really great cause. “All net proceeds from the sales and streams of ‘Stuck With U’ 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,” said a statement shared on Instagram by both Justin and Ariana.
We don’t know about you, but we love to see our faves rallying together for a good cause. Plus, new music never hurts.
