"2U" is a song by French DJ and record producer David Guetta, featuring vocals from Canadian pop singer Justin Bieber[1][2] Written by Bieber, Poo Bear, Cesqeaux and its producer Guetta and Giorgio Tuinfort, it was released on 9 June 2017 by What a Music, as the lead single from Guetta's upcoming seventh studio album, 7 (2018).[3]

Background[edit]

"2U" is the third collaborative single for Bieber in 2017 following "I'm the One" and "Despacito", both of which topped the US Billboard Hot 100 and other national charts.[4][5]

A thirteen-second teaser was revealed by Victoria's Secret's models Elsa Hosk, Jasmine Tookes, Romee Strijd and Sara Sampaio.[6][7][8][9] The cover art was revealed by Guetta on 8 June 2017.[10] Guetta told MTV that the song was "just very romantic".[11]

Music video[edit]

Guetta announced that there would be two music videos for the single; the Victoria Secret version and another version which he calls "not branded".[12] The first version features Victoria Secret's models Sara Sampaio, Romee Strijd, Elsa Hosk, Jasmine Tookes, Stella Maxwell and Martha Hunt lip-syncing the song while on-set of a photo shoot for the lingerie brand.[13] The second music video was released on 29 September 2017 on YouTube.
