“When he [Blanco] and [Finneas] showed me this song to be honest it was hard to listen to considering how tough it was to get through some of these chapters,” Bieber wrote of the song. “I went into the studio and sang through it which wasn’t easy but started to really see the importance of telling this story! It made me realise we all feel lonely at times! Being someone in my position I believe it is powerful to express vulnerability and that’s why I believe this song is so powerful!”
Justin Bieber and benny blanco bare it all in the acoustic video for “Lonely,” which came out Tuesday (Oct. 27). Blanco plays on a Wurlitzer electronic piano for the stirring ballad, with Bieber singing the emotional lyrics in a sparse recording studio.
When Blanco and Finneas showed Bieber this song, it was difficult for him to hear considering how difficult it was to get through some of these chapters.
Bieber walked into the studio and sang, which wasn’t easy for him, but he began to really see the importance of telling that story. It made him realize that we all feel lonely sometimes. Being someone in his position, he believed that it is powerful to express vulnerability and that is why he believed that this song is so powerful.
The album received a two-star review from NME, saying that “Bieber’s weak comeback results in a collection of adored songs that lack innovation or substance.”
“Lonely” is Blanco’s first single of the year. Last year he released music with Juice WRLD, Selena Gomez, J Balvin and Calvin Harris, among others. His only LP, “Friends Keep Secrets”, was released in 2018.

There’s a lot to discuss on the U.K. singles chart this week, but perhaps the most notable achievement on the tally this time around is Justin Bieber scoring his milestone fiftieth top 40 hit with another instant smash.
