Bieber remixes are easy to come by these days. It’s easy to see why. JB has finally taken a step towards maturing as an artist, so the world can take his music more seriously, where remixing a Justin song of old would have probably put you on the butt of a joke. Enter 4B and Jon Santana’s doozy rework of “What Do You Mean”. Stripping away the tropical elements of the original, the producers have instead utilized quick-hitting rimshots and an edgy bass riff to give the song a new hard and soft feel. Stream the chilled-out remix below and let us know what you think in the comments!
Well it had to be done sometime, right? Taking two of the summer’s biggest hits, Chicago-natives Flosstradamus may have just extended the playing runway of both Jack U’s “Where Are U Now” and Post Malone’s “White Iverson”. Somehow, someway, Posty sounds just right replacing Justin Bieber on the Skrillex and Diplo production.
Stream the mash up below, and sing along to the original’s lyrics below!
I don’t really have much to say about this video because every time I try to watch it I get distracted (read: disgusted) by Justin Bieber’s attempt at a mustache (read: overgrown peach fuzz) and his attire (read: a ladies’ t-shirt, cardigan and necklace), all of which just leaves me asking “but why?”
I am confident enough in my masculinity to say: This song is the shit. Biebs and Drizzy teamed up with producer-extraordinaire Hit-Boy to bring us some of that Late-90’s-Early-00’s-R’n’B that has been missing for way too long. If all is right with the world and the music gods are smiling on us, then Bieber will pick up right where Justin Timberlake left off and get some girls that are actually legal. Believe drops on June 19th.
Let’s be honest. Everyone has that ONE Justin Bieber song they like. Mine happens to be “U Smile.” Whether you hate the kid or not, someone has caught you at some point singing one of his tunes.
I happen to think Boyfriend is an okay song. His rapping is awful, but the bridge and chorus are great. Specifically the bridge because he channels his inner Justin Timberlake.
Anyways, this is an official remix as 2 Chainz, Asher Roth, and Mac gave The Biebs a remix treatment. In order of best verse: Asher > 2 Chainz > Mac. Not saying Mac’s verse was bad (I actually enjoyed it), but 2 Chainz is on a hot streak with his ad libs (TRUUUUUE), and Asher brings us back to middle school days.
