Can you believe Justin Bieber has been in the industry for over a decade now? You may remember him for his iconic swoopy hair back in the 2010s and his heartbreaker image, but we know and love him as a man who has lived through being a child star, struggled, and persevered from it. And as long-time fans of his, it is only fitting that we do a round-up of our favorite collaborations throughout his 13 years in music!
‘Stuck With U’ featuring Ariana Grande
First up, we have the ‘Stuck With U’ collab that he did with Ariana Grande. We have been waiting years for Ariana and Justin to team up, and we are so happy that they finally did. This song is a certified bop, and we cannot be happier with what this duo came out with, including this stunning music video.
‘Beauty and a Beat’ featuring Nicki Minaj
Next up we have the iconic ‘Beauty and a Beat’ collab with Nicki Minaj. This song was released on his 2012 album, Believe. ‘Beauty and a Beat’ has recently been making its rounds on TikTok throughout the various fandoms, and we are here 👏🏻 for 👏🏻 it! Gotta keep our eye out for Selener!
‘I Don’t Care’ featuring Ed Sheeran
Third, on our list is the collab between Justin and Ed Sheeran. They released ‘I Don’t Care’ as part of Ed’s 2019 No. 6 Collaborations Project album. We had been waiting for a collab between these two amazing musicians for a very long time. We don’t know who got in touch with who, but we are very thankful to whoever did!
‘Lonely’ featuring Benny Blanco
Fourth up on our list is ‘Lonely’ with Benny Blanco. This was released in 2020 as a single and was played all across the Top 40 Pop Radio stations. Benny Blanco is an incredibly talented musician and this track just shows how talented both Justin and Benny are. We can relate to the song and the message and it is currently on most of our playlists.
‘Monster’ featuring Shawn Mendes
Next on the list is ‘Monster’! This collaboration between Justin and Shawn Mendes was released on Shawn’s 2020 album, Wonder. As with all of Justin’s 2020 collabs, this was an immediate hit on the Top 40 Pop radio stations across the United States. And for good reason!
‘The Feeling’ featuring Halsey
Sixth on our list is ‘The Feeling’ featuring Halsey! This song was released on Justin’s 2015 album, Purpose. As OG fans of both artists, we had no idea that we needed this collab in our life, but we are so happy it came about. Halsey and Justin’s voices mesh so well together and this song is still on our playlists to this day.
‘Never Say Never’ featuring Jaden Smith
Seventh on the list is the 2010 release of ‘Never Say Never’ featuring Jaden Smith. When this song came out, it was used as the theme song for the remake of The Karate Kid, where Jaden was the film’s star. The song was also featured in Justin’s documentary, Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, where shots of him and Jaden performing at Madison Square Garden are shown.
‘Baby’ featuring Ludacris
We couldn’t finish this list off without mentioning the iconic ‘Baby’ featuring Ludacris. If you remember, this was one of the first hit singles we ever heard from Justin. The song debuted at number 5 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart and although critics will say this is one of his worst songs, we don’t believe that. At the time the song was released, Justin was gearing towards a young female audience and this song is catchy and does well with that type of fandom.
