Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez’ new duet ‘Strong’ was only a surprise to their fans, as the sexy on-again, off-again couple had this epic shocker in plans for months! ‘Strong’ wasn’t just intended as a hot new track; it was a way to bring the exes closer together again.
“Strong” was the surprise of a lifetime for dedicated Jelena fans, but both Justin Bieber, 22, and Selena Gomez, 23, have had this track planned out for quite some time, according to one of our EXCLUSIVE sources. The sexy new song, which dropped on October 17, wasn’t just a treat for their fans; it was a way for Justin and Selena to work on their relationship together. Read on for more details!

“[Selena and Justin] didn’t record this together; they laid their tracks separately but were both very involved with the song’s creation and writing,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “They weren’t the main writers, but they will be credited as writers among others. This has been planned for months and they have been working on it at the same time they were working on their own albums.”
“They are still very tight and [Justin] felt that it would be very therapeutic if they worked together,” the source continued. “Their past could lead into some amazing future business decisions because they both know how each other tick.”
This is so exciting. Justin and Selena may have been pretending for months that they weren’t too fond of each other, but it was definitely a front for this epic surprise! “Strong” is a slow, sexy jam that broaches the subject of a complicated, brutal relationship. Both sides are just trying hard to give each other all the love they have (read the lyrics here), but they’re still messing up.
It’s clear why Justin thought this project would be therapeutic. They wouldn’t have to work in the studio together, but could put out something great that would prove they truly work as a great team! We expect there to be some more amazing Jelena music in the future!
