After masterminding Justin Bieber’s eight-times platinum worldwide smash hit “Sorry,” DJ and producer Bloodpop, otherwise known as Michael Tucker, has teamed up with the pop megastar once again for a new collaboration titled “Friends.” The single boasts a steady beat overlaid with galloping, bassy-synth and a catchy hook that is reminiscent of “Sorry.” You can listen to “Friends” above.
“Friends” is Bloodpop’s official single debut under that moniker (he formerly recorded under the name Blood Diamonds). Tucker has written and produced for some of the hottest pop stars in the game including Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, Madonna, Fifth Harmony, Grimes, Haim and more.
For Bieber, the single is likely to continue his domination of the summer airwaves. His recent collaboration with DJ Khaled, “I’m the One,” rocketed to #1, only to be displaced by his collaboration with Daddy Yankee, “Despacito,” which has reigned at #1 for 14 weeks making Bieber the only artist to log separate #1’s in consecutive weeks.
