Song of the Day #2,597: ‘Where Are U Now’ – Skrillex & Diplo w/ Justin Bieber

justin_bieberWiz Khalifa’s ‘See You Again,’ another track with a claim on the Song of the Summer title, sits at #11 on Billboard’s Hot 100. This song has had a hell of a run, especially considering Furious 7, in which it first appeared, was released in early April.

That said, I don’t know if a Song of the Summer should be a somber remembrance of a man who died too young. Songs of the Summer should be happy, IMHO, which is why my vote remains ‘Shut Up and Dance.’

At #12, we have DJs Skrillex and Diplo attempting to resurrect the career of asshat Justin Bieber.

I haven’t heard ‘Where Are U Now’ yet but I already dislike it. That’s how toxic the Bieber name has become. Let’s see if actually listening to it makes a difference.

Nope. The best is fine but it’s not enough to overcome the unsettling vibe of Bieber trying to repair his image through whispery high vocals and puppy dog eyes.

[Intro: Justin Bieber]
I need you the, I need you, I need you the, I need you
I need y-y-y-y-y, I need you the, I need you, I need you the
I need you, I need y-y-y-y-you the m-m-m
I need you the most

[Verse 1: Justin Bieber]
I gave you the key when the door wasn’t open, just admit it
See, I gave you faith, turned your doubt into hoping, can’t deny it
Now I’m all alone and my joys turned to moping
Tell me, where are you now that I need you?
Where are you now?
Where are you now that I need ya?
Couldn’t find you anywhere
When you broke down I didn’t leave ya
I was by your side
So where are you now that I need ya?
Where are you now that I need ya?

[Bridge: Justin Bieber]
Where are you now that I need ya?
Where are you now that I need ya?
Where are you now that I need ya?

[Verse 2: Justin Bieber]
I gave you attention when nobody else was payin’
I gave you the shirt off my back, what you sayin’?
To keep you warm
I showed you the game everybody else was playin’, that’s for sure
And I was on my knees when nobody else was prayin’, oh Lord

[Hook: Justin Bieber]
Where are you now that I need ya?
Where are you now that I need ya?
Where are you now that I need ya?
I need you, I need you, I need you, I need you
I need you, I need you, I need you, I need you
I need you the most

[Bridge]
Where are you now that I need ya?
Where are you now that I need ya?
Where are you now that I need ya?

    We just heard the Biebs perform this on the VMAs, where he broke down crying at the end, apparently because he was overwhelmed by the warm reception he received. Clearly, he has a long way to go to become a respectable human being again, rather than the obnoxious characature he has become. He’s young though and to borrow from Swift’s description of Kanye West, “still an innocent.” Of course, judging by Kanye’s rambling narcissistic VMA speech, he still hasn’t matured, so who knows if the Biebs will.
