I picked this song because I use to like it alot, and it has a lot of meaning. The first verse of Major Lazer's song, Justin begins singing "Everybody gets high sometimes, you know- What else can we do when we're feeling low?" This line probably is referring to drug use because Bieber is assuming his friend needs some cheering up and that he understands that she would get high when she is "feeling low."
Ed Sheeran is listed co-writer and marks the second time that Sheeran has worked with Bieber and the first being "Love Yourself." "And if you feel you're sinking, I will jump right over- Into cold,cold water for you" This meaning that they are trying to portray is that if someone fell overboard into water that he would help them. I think this song can really relate to a lot of people that are struggling. I never really listened to Justin Bieber as a kid but I never realized how much people can relate to them.
I never really liked Justin Bieber because I kinda thought that his songs were about all these things I didn't really understand as a kid. Now that I am older I kinda understand what he is trying to say. Basically Bieber is trying to tell us that he will do anything to keep her safe, even if they aren't together, they are just the closest friends.
