Billie Eilish released a remix of her song “bad guy” featuring Justin Bieber, and for the young artist, the collaboration has been a long time coming.
Eilish has been a Belieber ever since she was a little girl, and when her music began to be discovered and she started to rise to fame, she simply wanted one thing: to meet her hero, Justin Bieber.
After Bieber followed Eilish on all social media, the two finally met in person in April 2019 at Coachella during Ariana Grande’s set. After the two met, Eilish’s dreams took a step further, and she wanted to collaborate with Bieber.
The artists released a remix to Eilish’s hit song, “bad guy” off her latest album, WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? The song features Bieber on a verse as well as some other vocals throughout the song. Eilish posted about the remix on social media, saying “anything is possible.”
Bieber also posted about the song on his social media, saying how proud he is of Eilish’s work.
However, after fans were through congratulating the singer on her collaboration with her hero, people started to get critical of the remix. The reactions to the song itself are very mixed between fans’ excitement for Eilish’s success and others criticism for the monotonous nature of Bieber’s role in the song.
