Justin Bieber has released a raw, emotional new song titled “Lonely,” produced by Benny Blanco and Finneas.
On the touching ballad, the pop star reflects on his early career, rise to stardom and the price of fame. “What if you had it all but nobody to call? / Maybe then you’d know me / ’Cause I’ve had everything / But no one’s listening / And that’s just fucking lonely,” he croons.
The song accompanying video echoes the lyrics, and stars Wonder’s Jacob Tremblay as a young Bieber who wanders the backstage of a theatre all alone. He eventually heads up to the stage, where he comes face to face with the real Bieber.
“Lonely” is the latest collaboration from Bieber this year. It follows “Holy” with Chance the Rapper, “Stuck with U” featuring Ariana Grande and the remix of “Yummy” with Florida Georgia Line. Bieber also recently appeared in the video for “Popstar” by DJ Khaled and Drake.
