Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez’s ‘Strong’ Collaboration Leaks Online

Selena Gomez on Justin Bieber
'I'll forever support him and love him'

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have released a song together, and it’s hot. 

The duet, believed to be called “Strong”, was released on Drake’s Beats 1 show, OVO Sound Radio, on Saturday (Oct. 17, 2015). The new track is about a long-distance relationship, and is rumoured to appear on Bieber’s new album Purpose, which is set for release on November 13.

Many Beliebers probably thought they were getting an exclusive first listen to one of his new songs, but little did they know that the song featured his ex-girlfriend. It is the first time the two have collaborated musically, despite having dated on and off since 2010.

Of course, Bieber and Gomez had a highly publicized split, so this duet is basically a breakup record. “There’s no sophistication in my lack of patience. I’m just wishing you were better at communication,” sings Gomez at the start. “As I sit here steady waiting, wishing that you would call my name.” From there, the song progresses into a literal back and forth between the two, trying to remain “strong” during tough times.

Unfortunately, some YouTube links and SoundCloud clips have already been taken down, but here are all the lyrics to the song just incase.

There’s no sophistication in my lack of patience
I’m just wishing you were better at communication
As I sit here steady waiting
Wishing that you would call my name in

Wishing I was better with the distance

It’s cause you’re the only one I’m really missing
Nobody else would be forgiving
Cause of all the love that you give me
All of the love that you give me
All of the love that you give me

Wishing I was better at this damn thing
Cause it’s just been too long and I can’t change
Wishing I was better at this damn thing
Cause it’s just been too long and I can’t change

Gotta be strong, strong, strong
Gotta be strong, strong, strong

What should I do? Should I go?
Who do I talk to? Nobody knows
Who knows the answer to all of my question
When will I get over this, over this

Wishing I was better with the distance

It’s cause you’re the only one I’m really missing
Nobody else would be forgiving
Cause of all that love that you give me
All of the love that you give me
All of the love that you give me
(Wishing I was better at this damn thing
Cause it’s just been too long and I can’t change)
Wishing I was better at this damn thing
Cause it’s just been too long and I can’t change

Gotta be strong, strong, strong
Gotta be strong, strong, strong
