The two artists talk mentorship and collaboration an exclusive scene from Kids Are Growing Up: A Story About a Kid Named Laroi, out Feb. 29 on Prime Video


Three years ago, the Kid LAROI notched the biggest hit of his career as “Stay” reached explosive levels of success. Now nearing three billion streams on Spotify, the single found him pleading for forgiveness in a relationship while wrestling with wasted nights, time, and potential. Conversely, Justin Bieber‘s guest appearance was a hopeful embrace of the love that healing opened him up to experiencing.

In an exclusive clip from Laroi’s forthcoming documentary Kids Are Growing Up: A Story About a Kid Named Laroi, premiering via Prime Video on Feb. 29, the 20-year-old rapper and singer notes the ways in which Bieber’s optimism has permeated their interactions both in and out of the studio. “He’s just a really special human being. He has no ego when it comes to supporting me,” Laroi tells Rolling Stone. “Not everyone’s like him. He’s very giving and he wants to offer everything that he has to help me.”
