Single by {{{Artist}}}

"2U" is a song by French DJ David Guetta and Canadian pop singer Justin Bieber[2] from Guetta's upcoming seventh studio album.[3] It was released on June 9, 2017.[4]

Background[edit | edit source]

"2U" is the third collaborative single for Bieber in 2017 following "I'm the One" and "Despacito", both of which topped the US Billboard Hot 100 and other national charts.[5][6]

A thirteen-second teaser was revealed by Victoria's Secret's models Elsa Hosk, Jasmine Tookes, Romee Strijd and Sara Sampaio.[7][8][9][10] The cover art was revealed by Guetta on June 8, 2017.[11] Guetta told MTV that the song was "just very romantic."[12]

Music video[edit | edit source]

Guetta announced that there will be two music videos for the single; the Victoria Secret version and another version which he calls "not branded".[13] The first version features Victoria Secret's models Sara Sampaio, Romee Strijd, Elsa Hosk, Jasmine Tookes, Stella Maxwell, and Martha Hunt lip-syncing the song while on-set of a photo shoot for the lingerie brand.[14]
