While many celebrities are contributing to raising funds for those affected by the coronavirus outbreak, Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande have come up with their own unique way to give back. The duo took to Instagram to reveal that they have been working on a new track – “Stuck with U” – which is set to drop tomorrow. As for the corresponding music video? There’s a twist.
Not only did the duo release the instrumental version of the song, but they also urged fans to film videos of themselves dancing to the track – dressed in the prom dresses or suits they never got to wear – with loved ones, pets, or all alone. The popstars will then compile the fan videos to make the music video for the upcoming track.

If you don’t have that just have fun with your loved ones . Help us make this about all of us in quarantine . We will be editing this weekend. Get the instrumental here —-> stuckwithu.com
Aimed at expressing gratitude to those on the frontlines for their relentless efforts, all net proceeds from the sales and the streams of the song will be donated to First Responders Children’s Foundation to fund grants and scholarships for children of healthcare workers, emergency medical technicians (EMTs), paramedics, police officers, and firefighters impacted by the pandemic.
“We wanted to show our gratitude to the men and women on the frontlines who work tirelessly for our health and safety during this crisis. They are the everyday heroes and now, more than ever, they and their families deserve our support,” Bieber’s manager and SB Projects founder Scooter Braun said in a press release. It’s safe to say this song is a long time coming; the popstars have been friends for years now, and their fans have been rooting for a collab since Bieber used the hashtag #arianabieberduet back in 2014.
