For Bloodpop's part, since working with Bieber he's logged significant placements on Lady Gaga's most recent album, as well as Haim's latest single "Want You Back".
One of Bieber's producers, Poo Bear, has recently said in an interview with Billboard that "it's naturally time for a new body of work" from the star. "Friends" was also co-written with songwriters Julia Michaels and Justin Tranter.
The Canadian Grammy award victor released his new song "Friends" on Thursday. "And if it ends, can we be friends?". "Friends" is a collaboration with BloodPop, aka Michael Tucker. Catchy and relatable, we approve.
"This single is the first Bieber has released since his objective album track, 'Company.' Earlier this year, he collaborated with David Guetta for the track, "2U", and Luis Fonsi for the hit song 'Despacito".
Since releasing Purpose, Justin has kept a low profile music-wise but has appeared on several other songs. "Me taking this time right now is me saying I want to be SUSTAINABLE." he continued while citing broken relationships.
Initially citing his reason as due to "unforeseen circumstances", gossip website TMZ later claimed that Bieber had cancelled the remainder of his tour in order to "rededicate his life to Christ".
