On Aug. 14, Justin Bieber took to his Twitter account to announce the upcoming release of a collaboration with producer BloodPop. The song "Friends" will be released on Thursday, Aug. 17 at noon, according to his tweet.
"Friends" is co-written by Julia Michaels, Justin Tranter, Bieber and BloodPop, the same collaborators as his Bieber's Hot 100 No. 1 song "Sorry." Bieber and Bloodpop had previously teamed up on four tracks from his 2015 No. 1 album Purpose. Prior to today's announcement, Bieber teased fans Sunday evening (Aug. 13) on Twitter with a simple message asking, "Can we still be friends."
Whether the upcoming song is his title or BloodPop's is yet to be known, but Bieber has been releasing collaborations since early 2016 when he was featured on "Cold Water" by Major Lazer and MØ. His most successful of the five songs total is "Despacito," a feature on Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's Spanish remix track, and it's spending a 14th week at No. 1 on the Hot 100 songs chart.
Justin Bieber and BloodPop also released the cover art in the tweet for their new song together. The image is in black and white with two birds fighting over a worm sporting a smiley face.
