For any of you naysayers who don’t think Justin Bieber has any street cred, you’ll have 2 Chainz to contend with… and Mac Miller… and another one of Scooter Braun’s clients, Asher Roth. We’ll consider them his backup.
Some critics weren’t impressed with JB’s rapping skills but this version of his latest single “Boyfriend” wipes the track clear of those verses. In said version, the rappers talk about their love life in high school and Roth even touches on Jelena (a.k.a. Selena + Justin): “We could be like Selena and Biebs/ Wild and free, a couple disobedient teens/ Sneaking out to meet around like 2 o clock in the eve/ Paparazzi in the bar and we just hot in the beach.”
Apparently it’s THE song for artists to remix. We already heard The Ying Yang Twins put their special touch on the track after it drew comparisons to “Wait.”
Luckily the three rappers don’t touch JB’s smooth verses, but this way it’s a little more hardcore. Bieber tweeted: “WHAT?!??! my bro @asherroth just sent me a verse for the ?#BFREMIX? !! crazy! adding him to it! so dope. @2chainz @macmiller @asherroth ?#REMIX.” Hawt!”
