Justin’s song ‘Holy’ featuring the American rapper is a gospel pop song and was released on September 18, 2020. The track instantly debuted at the top of the iTunes charts and in order to promote the song, Justin and Chance had also joined hands to giveaway a total of $250,000 to the fans going through hard times, somewhere relating to the concept of the song.
In the official music video, the 27-year-old Canadian pop icon plays the role of a worker who loses his job in the midst of the pandemic, but he keeps himself strong with the help of love and spirituality. The chorus of the song goes like, “The way you hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me/feels so holy, holy, holy, holy, holy.” Chance raps on the same theme with lyrics like, “I know I ain’t leaving you, like I know he ain’t leaving us/I know we believe in God and I know God believe in us.”
