Shawn Mendes covers VMAN Magazine

On the his upcoming collaboration with Justin Bieber:
"Justin and I have never really had a relationship together, and I had this song called “Monster” that I wrote a long time ago. It’s about how society wants to put celebrities up on a pedestal, but as much as they want to do that, they want to celebrate the fall. It was a time when I was really afraid of my industry and afraid of my craft and afraid of everything. I didn’t have control. Everyone else had control over me. I think it just ended up becoming a metaphor for a bigger thing; that we all put pressure on each other as humans to be great, to be perfect. I called Justin and said, "I have this song and it means a lot to me. If it means something seriously to you and you want to put something very real on it, please be a part of this with me." And he did. Since then, we have become closer than ever. Sometimes I think that music comes along for a bigger reason, which, for me in this case is to create a song to inspire people, but to also create a friendship that was never there before."

Shawn also recently sat down for an in-depth interview with Zane Lowe to breakdown his upcoming album and discuss quarantine, self-reflection and how his relationship influenced the album.
