簡介

兩位加拿大萬人迷唱作男神Shawn Mendes及Justin Bieber,無可抵抗的俊朗外表,天賦的音樂才華,他們均曾奪得MTV歐洲音樂大獎的「最佳加拿大藝人獎」。這兩位加拿大之最的男歌手,攜手創作及獻唱歌曲〈Monster〉,他們更於歌曲推出前30分鐘,舉行了視像對話直播,分享新歌〈Monster〉的創作理念。他們回答粉絲的提問,在差不多有一整年的社交隔離下,兩位歌手肩並肩現身實在難得,更可見二人極度重視此合作!

〈Monster〉表面的意思是他們最大的敵人心魔就是自己,細看之下是暗指傳媒的窮追不捨和惡意的報導,令他們於事業、個人及感情的成長都受到監視,不能有任何出錯,歌曲延續了Justin 的歌曲〈Lonely〉,自出道受盡傳媒的壓力的控訴。MV同時推出,二人在空無一物的白色建築物頂唱出〈Monster〉,抒發傳媒的追捧把他們推上頂峰,但於高處實在毫無意義,人們只希望見到他們於該處掉下來「粉身碎骨」。他們宣布將於11月23日舉行的AMA頒獎禮上一同首次演出〈Monster〉。

Shawn Mendes售出超過2000萬張專輯,1.75億首單曲,歌曲並積累了超過310串流量和80億次YouTube觀看次數。第四張個人唱片《Wonder》,繼之前三張冠軍大碟將於今年12月4日推出。Shawn Mendes的首部紀錄片《Shawn Mendes: In Wonder》(《Shawn Mendes︰真誠有共鳴》) 於11月23日在Netflix上映,由Shawn、他的經理人Andrew Gertler等人製作,由音樂錄影帶金牌導演Grant Singer (Sam Smith、The Weeknd、Lorde)執導,毫不隱藏Shawn過去幾年的音樂心路歷程以及全球巡迴演出之旅,還有女友Camila Cabello於他事業及成長上的重要性,影片更被選為TIFF多倫多國際電影節的重頭推薦。

Justin Bieber的Spotify 擁有每月6100萬人訂閱,坐擁世界第一流量的歌手。今年5月疫情爆發最嚴峻時,Justin Bieber與Ariana Grande推出甜蜜抗疫歌〈Stuck with U〉,歌曲空降Billboard Hot 100冠軍,更贏得MTV Video Music Awards特別為現時世界狀況增設的「Best Music Video From Home」獎。隨後的5個月內,他再發布兩首作品,〈Holy〉歌頌對自己信仰的信念;〈Lonely〉則是情緒大爆發,寫多年來風光背後的壓力及孤單。Justin今年還翻唱Brenda Lee的經典聖誕歌〈Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree〉。Justin將角逐今年AMA共4個獎項,包括「Artist of the Year」、「Favorite Male Artist - Pop/Rock」、「Collaboration of the Year」及「Favorite Country Song」。

歌詞

You put me on a pedestal and tell me I'm the best
Raise me up into the sky until I'm short of breath (Yeah)
Fill me up with confidence, I say what's in my chest
Spill my words and tear me down until there's nothing left
Rearrange the pieces just to fit me with the rest, yeah

But what if I, what if I trip?
What if I, what if I fall?
Then am I the monster?
Just let me know
And what if I, what if I sin?
And what if I, what if I break? Yeah
Then am I the monster? Yeah
Just let me know, yeah

I was fifteen when the world put me on a pedestal
I had big dreams of doin' shows and making memories
Made some bad moves tryna act cool, upset by their jealously
Lifting me up (Lifting me up), lifting me up (Yeah)
And tearing me down (Down), tearing me down (Down, down)
I'll take responsibility for everything I've done (Yeah)
Holding it against me (Yeah) like you're the holy one (Yeah)

I had a chip on my shoulder, had to let it go
'Cause unforgiveness keeps them in control
I came in with good intentions then I let it go
And now I really wanna know

But what if I, what if I trip? (Oh)
What if I, what if I fall? (I fall)
Then am I the monster? (Am I the monster?)
Just let me know (Let me know)
And what if I, what if I sin? (Oh)
And what if I, what if I break?
Then am I the monster? (Am I the monster?)
Just let me know (Oh, please just let me know, yeah)

La-da-da-duh-duh (But what if I fall?)
La-da-da-duh-duh-duh-na
La-da-da-da-duh-duh
La-da-da-duh-duh-duh-na
La-da-da-duh-duh (Please don't let me fall)
La-da-da-duh-duh-duh-na
La-da-da-da-duh-duh (Oh, please don't let me fall)
La-da-da-duh-duh-duh-na
