Billie Eilish Drops Justin Bieber Remix of ‘Bad Guy’ (Listen)Variety — Jem Aswad
Billie Eilishâs longstanding fandom for Justin Bieber is no secret: Sheâs spoken often of it and posted photos of the two of them after they met at the Coachella festival earlier this year. Eilish performed a barnstorming set that received a rapturous response from the crowd and made her the de facto Saturday night headliner.
The pairâs long-reported remix of her âBad Guyâ has finally dropped, and with single artwork thatâs even more awesome than the Coachella photos: Itâs an apparently pre-teen Eilish standing in front of her bedroom wall of photos of primetime pop star Bieber.
The remix of the song isnât drastically different musically, but thereâs quite a lot of Bieber’s Timberlake-esque, autotuned vocals added, making the song essentially into a duet.
âBad Guyâ is one of the lead tracks from Eilishâs debut albumÂ âWhen We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?,â which was one of Varietyâs âBest Albums of 2019 (So Far)â late last month.
She is on tour for most of the rest of 2019, and is playing a three-night stand this week in her hometown of Los Angeles. Variety caught the first show, at the Shine Auditorium, on Tuesday night (check out the review here).
