Anybody who doesn’t care much about the music of Justin Bieber should probably find a monastery to hide in for a few months, because the 17-year-old Canadian pop sensation is about to unleash an onslaught of new material.
The lead track from his forthcoming album Believe is expected to land in a few weeks, but until then, he has lent his pipes to “Live My Life,” the new single by Far East Movement. (The group’s new album Dirty Bass is due to hit stores soon.)
The track, produced by turned-to-11 disco maven RedOne, finds the men of Far East Movement tapping into the same club-friendly swagger that sent “Like a G6” to the top of the Billboard Hot 100.
Bieber doesn’t have to do a whole lot of heavy lifting on “Live My Life” (he just croons the hook), but it’s a good first dip into the waters of his new baritone.
While we’ve already heard a full album of his evolving voice, it’s harder to tell where it’s going when the focus is on Yuletide cheer. “Live My Life” is the first real commercial peek at what’s next; listen to it below.
