Justin Bieber's all grow'd up, but he's still not cussing. JB just remixed Drake's song, "Trust Issues" and while Drake thinks Bieber's remix is "incredible" he wishes he didn't censor all the curse words.
Drake's original song is very dirty and filled with expletives but Justin decided to remix the song and take his stab at covering the track.
"I was excited when I heard he remixed it, because there was like a gang of swearing in that song. I was like, 'Oh, we're about to hear the transformation of Bieber.'" says Drake.
Well, he must of been disappointed because 17-year-old JB took out all the cursing and changed the more racier lyrics. The song, "Trust Issues" is what I think the hip-hop community is referring to as a "rap ballad".
Drake talks about Justin's remix, "I wish he would've left all the cuss words in it. I feel like that would've been so G, if he would've done all the swearing," Drake told MTV News at Lil Wayne's album release party.
Justin changed lyrics like, "f-ck it, I'm on one" to "You know I'm on one." He also changed a lyric that referred to b-tches and drinking because we know Justin engages in none of those things.
Drake sings in the original, "You know what I'm sippin'/I teach you how to mix it/But you're the only one, 'cause I don't trust these b-tches."
But since those lyrics are about teaching b-tches how to make mixed drinks, Justin changed it to the middle school talent show appropriate version of "You just need to listen/Teach you how to fix it/'Cause you're the only one, because I don't trust these women."
Now the lyrics are about listening, trust and how to mend a relationship.
Despite cleaning up a much edgier song I kind of like this new hardcore Bieber. I will be the first person to admit that Justin Bieber is a squirrel who wears skinny jeans, but ever since Bieber starting rapping I've become a Belieber. Yes, I said it! I've been wanting to get that off my chest for a while now. Phew. I don't have to turn down the volume when I drive slow and listen to Bieber in my car.
However, there's definitely some reverse auto-tune going on here to make Bieber's baby voice sound more mature and by mature, I mean he now sounds like a robot that smoked cigs for all his life. Auto-tune can make Ke$ha's voice sounds like singing, but it can't make Bieber sound more gangster.
Even with the changes, Drake loves what Bieber did with the song, "He's a talented kid...from Canada, so to hear him even remix that song is crazy. That's incredible."
