Song of the Day #4,255: ‘Yummy’ – Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber claims the 14th spot on this week’s Billboard Hot 100 with ‘Yummy,’ the first single from his upcoming album Changes. It has been five years since Bieber’s last album, the well-received Purpose, so expectations are high.

If ‘Yummy’ is any indication, we shouldn’t get too excited. This is a repetitive and nonsensical song, and another disappointing entry in one of the bleakest ‘What the Kids are Listening To’ segments.

So far, only the women — Dua Lipa and Billie Eilish — have prevented this from being a total bust.

Let’s see if we can at least finish strong tomorrow.

[Chorus]
Yeah, you got that yummy-yum
That yummy-yum, that yummy-yummy
Yeah, you got that yummy-yum
That yummy-yum, that yummy-yummy
Say the word, on my way
Yeah, babe, yeah, babe, yeah, babe
Any night, any day
Say the word, on my way
Yeah, babe, yeah, babe, yeah, babe
In the mornin’ or the late
Say the word, on my way

[Verse 1]
Bona fide stallion
Ain’t in no stable, no, you stay on the run
Ain’t on the side, you’re number one
Yeah, every time I come around, you get it done

[Pre-Chorus]
Fifty-fifty, love the way you split it
Hundred racks, help me spend it, babe
Light a match, get litty, babe
That jet set, watch the sunset kinda, yeah, yeah
Rollin’ eyes back in my head, make my toes curl, yeah, yeah

[Chorus]
Yeah, you got that yummy-yum
That yummy-yum, that yummy-yummy
Yeah, you got that yummy-yum
That yummy-yum, that yummy-yummy
Say the word, on my way
Yeah, babe, yeah, babe, yeah, babe
Any night, any day
Say the word, on my way
Yeah, babe, yeah, babe, yeah, babe
In the mornin’ or the late
Say the word, on my way

[Verse 2]
Standin’ up, keep me on the rise
Lost control of myself, I’m compromised
You’re incriminating, no disguise
And you ain’t never runnin’ low on supplies

[Pre-Chorus]
Fifty-fifty, love the way you split it
Hundred racks, help me spend it, babe
Light a match, get litty, babe
That jet set, watch the sunset kinda, yeah, yeah
Rollin’ eyes back in my head, make my toes curl, yeah, yeah

[Chorus]
Yeah, you got that yummy-yum
That yummy-yum, that yummy-yummy (You stay flexin’ on me)
Yeah, you got that yummy-yum (Yeah, yeah)
That yummy-yum, that yummy-yummy
Say the word, on my way
Yeah, babe, yeah, babe, yeah, babe (Yeah, babe)
Any night, any day
Say the word, on my way
Yeah, babe, yeah, babe, yeah, babe (Yeah, babe)
In the mornin’ or the late
Say the word, on my way

[Bridge]
Hop in the Lambo’, I’m on my way
Drew House slippers on with a smile on my face
I’m elated that you are my lady
You got the yum, yum, yum, yum
You got the yum, yum-yum, woah
Woah-ooh

[Chorus]
Yeah, you got that yummy-yum
That yummy-yum, that yummy-yummy
Yeah, you got that yummy-yum
That yummy-yum, that yummy-yummy
Say the word, on my way
Yeah, babe, yeah, babe, yeah, babe (Yeah, babe)
Any night, any day
Say the word, on my way
Yeah, babe, yeah, babe, yeah, babe (Yeah, babe)
In the mornin’ or the late
Say the word, on my way

    Aw, don’t be too hard on the Biebs! This song may be vapid and repetitive, but it’s certainly catchier than most of the other songs in the top 20.
