Bieber and Blanco previously worked together on Usher’s ‘Somebody to Love’ remix as well as on Bieber’s 2015 hit ‘Love Yourself’, co-written by the pair with Ed Sheeran.
‘Lonely’ will be the follow-up to ‘Holy’ ft. Chance The Rapper. The much-anticipated track dropped last month and was accompanied by a Colin Tilley-directed short film.
The single also marked Bieber’s official return to pop just month’s after dropping his 8x global platinum single ‘Intentions’ ft. Quavo, which earned him his seventh No.1 on the Billboard Pop Songs chart.
