ARIANA GRANDE, JUSTIN BIEBER ANNOUNCE NEW SONG FOR CHARITY – (05/04/2020)
Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber announced a new single, titled “Stuck With U,” on Friday that will help raise funds for charity amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The song will be released on May 8th with all net proceeds from music streams and sales going to the First Responders Children’s Foundation, which helps to fund grants and scholarships for children of first responders who have been impacted by COVID-19.
Grande and Bieber made the announcement on social media alongside artwork for the track which features two people inside of a house. Bieber shared the news on Twitter with a crudely-drawn illustration, by artist and New Yorker contributor Liana Finck, depicting two people sheltering together in a home – a clear reference to the self-isolation many people are facing during the coronavirus pandemic.
Grande and Bieber last appeared together on “What Do You Mean (Remix)” released in 2015.
