Published Jun 29, 2015Skrillex and Diplo have seen their Jack Ü project take off via house-leaning pop singles like the Justin Bieber-assisted "Where Are Ü Now." In addition to providing the vocals, Bieber is now appearing in the video for the high-energy heart-tugger, which you can see online now.
As you'll find down below, the video has the Beebs pouring his heart out over a girl that apparently up and ran out on him, laying out his confusion over the situation with lines like "where are you now that I need you?" Even more confusing? The Canadian pop singer's body has apparently also become the world's most malleable canvas, as the video splashes paint and scribbles lines atop the guy throughout the vid.
Here's Jack Ü's statement on the artistic proceedings:
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. 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. 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.
