Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon/Def Jam Recordings

Two of Canadian’s favorite popstars Shawn Mendes and Justin Bieber will be releasing their collaborative single, “Monster,” on November 20.

In support of his highly-anticipated album, Mendes is releasing ‘Monster, featuring Bieber, as the second official single from his upcoming fourth studio album, Wonder which is set to release on December 4.

Shawn Mendes and Justin Bieber both announced their forthcoming collaborative single via social media on November 16. They shared the news with a 13-second clip that features numerous dark outdoor scenes as soothing instrumental plays in the background. The title of the song, the popstars’ names, and the upcoming release date is also displayed in the video with bold white font.

The collaboration between the two stars may come as no surprise to their respective fans, as they have been seen hanging out much more recently. In January, Bieber claimed that Mendes was “another Canadian treasure” at his Changes album playback party. In July, Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun shared a video of Mendes, Bieber, and Tori Kelly riffing off around the piano together.

Just three days prior to the collab announcement, Mendes released the tracklist to his upcoming album, Wonder, on November 14. He wrote, “Monster (Shawn Mendes & ____)”, allowing fans to quickly start guessing who it might be. We now know that Justin Bieber will be the featured artist in what will for sure be a hit single.

In a statement describing the album Wonder, he said, “It really feels like a piece of me has been written down on paper and recorded into song. I tried to be as real and as honest as I’ve ever been. It’s a world and a journey and a dream and an album I’ve been wanting to make for a really long time. I absolutely love it. Thank you for being by my side for so many years. I love you all so much.”

Though we have a little longer to wait for the album Wonder and the collaborative single “Monster,” fans are already claiming it to be the collaboration of a lifetime.

Keep watching, and then re-watching, the teaser until Mendes and Bieber’s new single, Monster, is released on November 20.
