Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande are getting together for a good cause. The singers announced Friday (May 1) that they are dropping the joint single “Stuck with U” to benefit the First Responders Children’s Foundation. The song will be released on May 8 and is available for pre-order here now.
According to a release announcing the track, it is the first of a compilation of singles benefitting charitable organizations from the singers’ manager Scooter Braun’s SB Projects that will be released over the course of the year.
All net proceeds from streams and sales of “Stuck with U” 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 serving on the front lines during the global pandemic.
“I’m so excited to announce that my friend Justin Bieber and I have partnered with SB Projects and First Responders Children’s Foundation on this little project here,” said Grande in a statement. “We’re very excited about this for so many reasons. We hope we make a big difference with this and we hope it uplifts you and makes you feel happy and that you love it as much as we do. We’ve had a really great time working on this and we’re so excited for you to hear it.”
Bieber added, “more than ever we are seeing the selfless, tireless and amazing work that doctors, nurses and healthcare providers give to the world every day. It is our hope we can lend our voices to raise awareness and give much-needed support for them and their families. It’s my honor to come together with my friend Ariana and our SB Projects family to try and do some good.”
Braun said the project is aimed at showing gratitude to the men and women on the front lines who are working to keep people safe and healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic. “They are the everyday heroes and now more than ever they and their families deserve our support,” said Braun. “I’m grateful to Justin, Ariana, Def Jam and Republic Records, Universal Music Group, our amazing SB Projects team, our digital streaming partners and all those involved in making this happen. We all look forward to continuing our tradition of charitable releases over the next year.”
“On behalf of First Responders Children’s Foundation, I would like to thank Scooter Braun and the entire SB Projects family for bringing all of us together and providing critical support for first responders and their families, and to Ms. Grande and Mr. Bieber for using the power of their music to lift the spirits of first responders responding to this crisis,” said Jillian Crane, president of First Responders Children’s Foundation.
Grande and Bieber previously teamed up for “What Do You Mean (Remix)” in 2015.
