Two Canadian pop giants have announced that later this week their collaboration on the aptly titled “Monster” single, drops this Friday, November 20.
Shawn Mendes and Justin Bieber took to social media on Monday (Nov. 16) afternoon to announce that their duet will be released on Friday, Nov. 20.
They both shared the news with a short video clip, which features a few creepy dimly-lit outdoor scenes as ghoulish organ-synth sounds cut in and out in the background.
Here is the sample clip:
Toronto’s Mendes previously-released his single “Wonder,” which also serves as the title track to his upcoming album, set to be released just in time for Christmas on December 4 via Island Records.
“Monster,” which will also appear on the new Shawn Mendes album, Wonder, is available to pre-save here.
Wonder will be Mendes’ fourth album. The Canadian music giant released his debut studio album, Handwritten, in 2015, with the single “Stitches” reaching the Top 10 charts in the US and Canada. He then released two other albums: Illuminate (2016), with singles including “Treat YouBetter” and “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back,” and Shawn Mendes (2018), with the single “In My Blood.”
Mendes has won 13 SOCAN awards, 10 MTV Europe Music Awards, eight Juno Awards, eight iHeartRadio MMVAs, and two American Music Awards, and he has been nominated for three Grammy Awards.
