JB’s man voice
I was in makeup just now which is around the corner from the MTV Canada offices. A song started playing. And our makeup artist, Natalie, who is all about the hiphop and R&B was like…
Who is that? Drake? What?
I laughed. So hard. Because I’d just heard it an hour ago. It’s Justin Bieber’s Heartbreaker, just released this morning as part of his #MusicMondays – a new song every week for 10 weeks.
Nat didn’t recognise it as JB because, well, he’s got his new man voice on. It’s definitely deeper. And he drawls and slurs now. Like he’s half asleep all the time.
Here. Listen. If you want to skip the singing parts, just start at 2:35 and hear it. If for no reason than you need a laugh this morning. I promise you, you’ll get one.
He no longer puts a “t” at the end of the word “but”. It comes out like “buhhh”.
Wrote JB about his Heartbreaker:
"It's a song for people going through heartbreak—like I was when I wrote it. It means so much to me to be able to share what I was, and still am, going through, with my fans. I'm very proud of this song and I hope it gives my fans some insight into my heart."
Yes. And Selena Gomez too. During that talky-talky part, he sounds like he wants to go for it with her, again.
“I still believe in us.”
Oh My God.
