Justin Bieber is prepping to drop his new album Purpose, and while all of that is exciting in itself, a new collaboration featuring him and his ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez just leaked. We know, we know...OMG!!
The new track is titled "Strong." Don't worry, it's not a sex-song like that Rihanna and Chris Brown after-the-fact release after their breakup...ahem, "Birthday Cake".
But kind of like that one, Jelena's tune can be described as a stripped-down duet that has lyrics fans will likely be talking about for quite some time. It's pretty sexy, and slow. It definitely gives off a R&B sound. Their voices sound golden together. We dig like whoa.
"What should I do? Should I go? / Who do I talk to? Nobody knows," Bieber asked in the track. Sel is later heard singing, "Wishing I was better at this damn thing / Cause it's just been too long and I can't change."
The Biebs nor Selena talked up the tune on social media yet. That doesn't mean fans aren't freaking the EFF out over it, though. Talk about a friggin' surprise! We thought these two were not on good enough terms to even be in a sound booth together! Man, oh man...let's just hope they perform it together! #EPIC #GetBackTogetherJelena
Bieber's upcoming album comes out on November 13. In recent weeks, the former love birds have talked openly about their past relationship in separate interviews.
While opening up to the New York Times, Selena admitted that she is rooting for her ex's comeback. "While people were writing that I was stupid for being in [the relationship], this is what I always saw in him," she shared. "I'm like, duh!"
Meanwhile, Bieber can't help but remember the good times he shared with the former Disney star. "We were so in love. Nothing else mattered," he explained in Complex magazine.
"We were all about each other. But when it's like that and you get your value from that, people will always disappoint you. Your girl or your dude, they're always going to disappoint you."
