Justin Bieber Details The Perils Of Being A Child Star In Powerful New Single ‘Lonely’

Benny Blanco is back! As the world-famous songwriter and record producer embarks on his new musical era, the star has tapped Justin Bieber for a brand-new single titled ‘Lonely’. The track was produced by Blanco alongside the hottest producer in the world right now, FINNEAS, and shines a light on the fact that everyone gets lonely sometimes – even superstars like Justin Bieber.

The single, written by all three involved, is a deep look at Justin’s life in the spotlight. The accompanying clip finds actor Jacob Tremblay portraying the pop star during his ‘My World’ – complete with the side-swept hair and iconic purple hoodie, giving a peek behind the curtain of overnight childhood fame.

“benny and Finneas are both extraordinary writers, and it’s been amazing collaborating with them on ‘Lonely,’” says Bieber. “To be honest, the finished song is tough for me to listen to, considering how hard it was to get through some of those chapters. Hopefully telling this story will encourage others to vocalize what they are going through.”

Benny adds that “[Justin] was real nervous. He was like, ‘S—. Should I be putting this out into the world?’ Because he’s like, ‘People know me for this thing and it’s like I’ve never been this raw’. He’s raw on this song. This song brought us so much closer together. And it was just he’s really opening up on this and he’s super vulnerable.”

“We were just talking about we all play this Superman every day,” he continued. “I’m sure you do for your family, for your friends, and everyone’s counting on you for so many things. You do a lot of stuff for a lot of people and sometimes you get f—ed up. I know for sure it doesn’t matter. You do. I do. We all do. And why do you have to be this superhero? Why can’t you be like one of your kids for a second and be like, ‘I don’t want to do. I just want to cry. I just want to be sad.’ There’s this weird stigma and this thing where men are supposed to be this. And it’s like, ‘No, I want to be vulnerable. I want to cry. I want to have a good cry.'”
