Justin Bieber is back, and he wants to be your friend. At least that's the gist of the Purpose pop star's dancey new BloodPop collab "Friends," which dropped today (Aug 17).
Although the lyrics of the song find Bieber longing to maintain a friendship with an ex, the bouncy electronic beat of the track would fool anyone that it's actually as happy as it sounds. If anything, the upbeat energy of the track at least finds Bieber's plea "Can we be friends" to be more hopeful than desparing.
For the track, which is co-written by Julia Michaels and Justin Tranter, Bieber turns back to longtime collaborator BloodPop, who also produced several Purpose album tracks including smash hit "Sorry."
