Bieber and Garrix have been longtime friends, even before they were both signed by SB Projects, the management company run by legendary manager Scooter Braun. But since Garrix joined the team, fans have been clamoring for a proper collaboration. And even though this single seems to just be a straight Bieber single, co-produced by Garrix, it should still be enough to whet some whistles.
