Thanks to the collab, which is obviously already doing well on streaming platforms, many fans outside the country are also showing their love for Canada.
"Canada for the win from your favorite American," another Twitter user wrote.
Prior to the song's release, Bieber and Mendes joined forces for an YouTube Live where they discussed growing up in the limelight, and joked about the time Bieber didn't know who Mendes was.
They also announced that they'll be performing at the American Music Awards together.
