Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez collaborated on a duet which leaked over OVO Sound Radio over the weekend before being quickly deleted.
Ex-couple Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez took fans by surprise when a duet entitled "Strong," a song about their rocky relationship, played over Drake's OVO Sound Radio before it was suddenly taken off the air.
"You're the only one I'm really missing!" The duet goes. "What should I do? Should I go?/Who do I talk to? Nobody knows."
"Wishing I was better at this damn thing/Cause it's been too long and I can't change."
Their two voices could be heard lamenting relationship woes in the duet, both commending each other for their strong points and urging each other to stay strong.
It has yet to be confirmed whether the release of the song was deliberate, but after having been made briefly accessible for a short time only before it disappeared, it is still not clear whether the track was an actual collaboration for an album or something that both had recorded before they parted ways.
There have been reports the exes had been planning a collaboration for some time now as they believed it would be therapeutic in terms of achieving closure after their breakup.
While it is said they both recorded the tracks separately, both artists were closely involved with the duet's writing and composition, with the duet reportedly planned for months while both Bieber and Gomez were working on their own separate projects.
Bieber, 21, and Gomez, 23, dated for nearly four years from 2010 before confirming their breakup in January 2013.
One of the singles, "Good for You," from Gomez's new album "Revival" has reached fifth place on the Billboard Hot 100.
Bieber is currently working on his new album, "Purpose," which is scheduled to be released on November 13.
It has not been determined whether "Strong" was meant to be a promotion for each of their albums as a teaser to increase sales.
