The 21-year-old entertainer talked with the New York Times about how the track came together and how it started off as a ballad.
“Now, being 21 and going through some hardships, I think that you can hear that in my vocals, you can hear that through the emotion of my voice,” he said.
Justin also opened up about why he chose to work with the duo, also known as Jack U.
“I was like Diplo? Skrillex? I don’t really know if that’s where I want to go, and they did it, and I was just like, ‘Oh my gosh, this is blowing my mind,’” he said.
To watch the new video, head over to NYTimes.com.
The video comes with an explanation from Jack Ü about the inspiration for the footage.
“We are being overwhelmed, in a good way, by the success of ‘Where Are Ü Now’ with Justin Bieber, so with the video we wanted to just take it back to the beginning of the record & essentially create an ode to our fans,” the guys said in a statement.
“Doing what we do, it’s entirely all about the fans. We walk a fine line by being ‘famous’ and in the public eye but we are only here because of you, the fans,” they continued. “Justin wrote this record during a tough time in his life and it comes to us that sometimes, as artists, we are also just objects and we have to take that as much as we have to use that to create. We all do this for you, respect that you put us here and it’s Ü that made the video.”

“I’m actually not enemies with Zedd by any means. I just think that he came from such a cool place, and now he’s been pegged as a money-maker for a major label to do EDM, which to me isn’t even a genre. But they’ve pegged him for that, they’ve marketed him, even the fake relationship with Selena Gomez, all the things to sell records took away from the music,” the 36-year-old DJ shared to Radio.
Diplo added, “He’s an amazing producer and good songwriter. He’s got a really loud space right now in this culture, there are a lot of people paying attention to him, he can do this awesome music, and to just come out with something so flat and expected and easy for people… You only live once, you know what I’m saying?”
Diplo‘s comments come as a surprise since he and Zedd seemed like they were getting along just fine in February.
