Justin Bieber and Shawn Mendes team up first time for the ‘Monster’ music video

Fans were given a gift in the form of Shawn Mendes and Justin Bieber's first musical collaboration: Monster. The song and music video dropped in tandem, marking the second single from Mendes' upcoming fourth studio album, Wonder. Ahead of the record's December release, the dueting Canadian stars gave fans something to talk about with the dark and moody visuals and lyrics about the overwhelming and potentially ravaging effects of fame and its impact on identity. For his part, Bieber reflected on his trajectory in the limelight. It's a fitting subject for the two performers as both men had meteoric rises to fame when they were still teenagers. In fact, Bieber was a significant inspiration to Mendes, though they are only four years apart in age. Back in October, the Señorita singer played coy about a possible collaboration with Bieber. However, he did say during an interview, "If I turned one down, that would be insane considering he's been one of my favourite artists since I was 9 years old." The only insane thing about it is that the music video has already amassed more than three million views in less than 24 hours.
