Justin Bieber and David Guetta have teamed up on the track “2U” and its accompanying visuals, which feature Victoria’s Secret Angels lip syncing to the song.
Bieber caused a social media stir when he tweeted the following six names: Elsa, Jasmine, Sara, Romee, Stella and Martha. Victoria’s Secret fans caught on, clarifying that these are all first names of Victoria’s Secret Angels, but it was still unclear why Bieber had tweeted them in the first place.
Things came to light when Bieber shared teaser videos featuring models Romee Strijd, Sara Sampaio and Martha Hunt lip syncing to the new song. The featured models also shared the videos to their platforms.
“Justin has such a unique voice and I have so much respect for his talent but also for his choices,” Guetta said in a statement. “He took some risks reinventing himself lately in such a cool amazing creative way. I’m very proud to finally share a record with him. I feel like ’2U’ is an incredible combination of emotion energy with a huge melody combined with edgy sounds.”
In the video, models Elsa Hosk, Jasmine Tookes, Sara Sampaio, Romee Strijd, Stella Maxwell and Martha Hunt sport Victoria’s Secret designs as they dance and lip sync to “2U.” Ed Razek, chief marketing officer of L Brands and executive producer of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, is listed as executive producer of the music video.
