Song of the Day #4,702: ‘Peaches’ – Justin Bieber feat. Daniel Caesar and Giveon

In the #3 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 is Justin Bieber with ‘Peaches.’ This is the fifth single from his 2021 album Justice.

After five anticipatory single releases, ‘Peaches’ was dropped the same day as Justice and both the song and album debuted at #1. Bieber became the first male solo artist to debut at #1 on both the Hot 100 and Billboard 200 charts simultaneously.

For 70 years, no artist achieved that feat, but now it’s happened four times in less than a year. Korean pop band BTS did it in December with the song ‘Life Goes On’ and the album Be. And Taylor Swift — queen — pulled it off twice in six months with ‘Cardigan’/folklore and ‘Willow’/evermore.

Besides that bit of trivia, ‘Peaches’ is unremarkable. It’s heavily auto-tuned and repetitive and nothing I need to ever hear again.

[Chorus: Justin Bieber]
I got my peaches out in Georgia (Oh, yeah, shit)
I get my weed from California (That’s that shit)
I took my chick up to the North, yeah (Badass bitch)
I get my light right from the source, yeah (Yeah, that’s it)

[Verse 1: Justin Bieber]
And I say, oh (Oh)
The way I breathe you in (In)
It’s the texture of your skin
I wanna wrap my arms around you, baby
Never let you go, oh
And I say, oh
There’s nothing like your touch
It’s the way you lift me up, yeah
And I’ll be right here with you ’til the end of time

[Chorus: Justin Bieber]
I got my peaches out in Georgia (Oh, yeah, shit)
I get my weed from California (That’s that shit)
I took my chick up to the North, yeah (Badass bitch)
I get my light right from the source, yeah (Yeah, that’s it)

[Verse 2: Daniel Caesar]
You ain’t sure yet
But I’m for ya
All I can want, all I can wish for
Nights alone that we miss more
And days we save as souvenirs
There’s no time, I wanna make more time
And give you my whole life
I left my girl, I’m in Mallorca
Hate to leave her, call it torture
Remember when I couldn’t hold her
Left her baggage for Rimowa
[Chorus: Justin Bieber]
I got my peaches out in Georgia (Oh, yeah, shit)
I get my weed from California (That’s that shit)
I took my chick up to the North, yeah (Badass bitch)
I get my light right from the source, yeah (Yeah, that’s it)

[Verse 3: GIVĒON]
I get the feeling, so I’m sure (Sure)
Hand in my hand because I’m yours, I can’t
I can’t pretend, I can’t ignore, you’re right for me
Don’t think you wanna know just where I’ve been, oh
Done bein’ distracted
The one I need is right in my arms (Oh)
Your kisses taste the sweetest with mine
And I’ll be right here with you ’til the end of time

[Chorus: Justin Bieber]
I got my peaches out in Georgia (Oh, yeah, shit)
I get my weed from California (That’s that shit)
I took my chick up to the North, yeah (Badass bitch)
I get my light right from the source, yeah (Yeah, that’s it)
I got my peaches out in Georgia (Oh, yeah, shit)
I get my weed from California (That’s that shit)
I took my chick up to the North, yeah (Badass bitch)
(I get my light right from the source, yeah, yeah, that’s it)
I got my peaches out in Georgia (Oh, yeah, shit)
I get my weed from California (That’s that shit)
I took my chick up to the North, yeah (Badass bitch)
I get my light right from the source, yeah (Yeah, that’s it)
I got my peaches out in Georgia (Oh, yeah, shit)
I get my weed from California (That’s that shit)
I took my chick up to the North, yeah (Badass bitch)
I get my light right from the source, yeah (Yeah, that’s it)

    Isn’t Daniel Cesar an indie artist with a relatively small following? Curious how this collab came about…

    • The Cool Guy (Daniel) says:

      He’s not nearly as big as Justin Bieber, but he’s one of the best known R&B singers today. Justin’s always trying to chase that sound so it makes sense that he turned to two of the heaviest players in the genre right now!

  2. Dana Gallup says:

    This sounds like a Drake song, and I’m not a fan of Drake, so….

  3. The Cool Guy (Daniel) says:

    Let me start by saying I am a fan of this song. I do agree that the chorus repeats one time too many. I wish that Giveon’s part was longer, but he capitalizes on the half verse he’s given. Daniel Caeser’s smooth voice cuts through as always. Overall, despite the slightly repetitive/monotonous nature of this song there’s enough interesting melodic moments and moods through the featured artists that I feel it’s able to escape its repetitive chorus. I don’t love this song, but I like it very much and will definitely dance to it if it comes on!
