"Friends" is the latest single by Bieber and pop producer Bloodpop. Michaels has been a go-to songwriter coming into her own as an artist. She's previously written hits for Bieber, Selena Gomez, Britney Spears and many others. Julia actually penned "Friends" with Bieber, Bloodpop and songwriting partner Justin Tranter and now she's singing on the remix.
"Friends" is still a splashy pop production bursting with tropical beats. Michaels takes over the first verse and shares the heart-rendering chorus with Bieber. "So I'm wonderin' can we still be friends? / Doesn't have to end," the two sing together. Julia brings a feminine touch to the track like she and Justin are the ones questioning the future of their relationship. It's the more the merrier on this dulcet duet between Bieber and Michaels.
Bieber and Bloodpop's "Friends" remix featuring Michaels is now available on iTunes and Apple Music. Julia is playing a show in L.A. at the Grammy Museum on Nov. 2.
