Earlier this week, Justin Bieber tweeted “Remix” and the Internet roared with wild guesses as to which artist and song the pop sensation could be remixing. When news broke that he’d be hopping on Billie Eilish‘s “bad guy,” those roars turned thunderous as the excitement was nearly too much to handle. The pair first met following Billie’s iconic Coachella 2019 performance and it appears as though she’s not the only fan. Today, Justin Bieber has delivered the song of the summer with his remix of Billie Eilish’s “bad guy.”
Bieber and Billie’s voices mesh together perfectly, as their silky, buttery verses slink over the dark, wonky beat. His suave R&B vocal prowess takes the effervescent pop hit to whole new heights. Bieber has been all over the map this year, with releases alongside Ed Sheeran, Gucci Mane, and Chris Brown, but his “bad guy” remix certainly takes the cake. On “bad guy,” Bieber delivers one of his best guest performances since his appearance on Travis Scott’s 2015 hit “Maria I’m Drunk.”
The kicker about this particular track is that it has immense potential to stop history in the making. With Billie’s original currently slotted at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts, Justin Bieber’s remix might be just the thing to push it over the edge and dethrone Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus’ “Old Town Road.” “OTR” has held the title of #1 song in the country for an almost record-breaking number of weeks, with the keyword being “almost.” Ironically, Lil Nas X and Cyrus dropped off another remix today, this time featuring Young Thug and Walmart yodeler Mason Ramsey. It’s going to be a battle for that #1 spot. Stream Billie Eilish and Justin Bieber’s “bad guy” remix below.
