Justin Bieber and Carly Rae Jepsen’s Duet is Simply ‘Beautiful’ (AUDIO)
Bieber, 18, discovered Jepsen, 26, last year when he overheard her single, “Call Me Maybe,” while on a trip in his native Canada. And, well, the rest is history. After Bieber uploaded a video of him and his friends singing along to the song, “Call Me Maybe” became an overnight sensation — and it was recently dubbed the “Song of the Summer” by Billboard.
Now the Biebs and his protege are collaborating on a slow-tempo track, simply called “Beautiful.”
Bieber and Jepsen released a sneak preview of the duet on Wednesday. The sugary sweet track will appear on Jepsen’s upcoming album, Kiss.
“You’re not trying to be perfect, nobody’s perfect, but you are to me,” Jepsen croons. “What makes you so beautiful is that you don’t know how beautiful you are to me,” Bieber follows.
Jepsen’s forthcoming album, Kiss, is one of the most anticipated releases of fall, and it has many critics wondering if Jepsen can follow-up her massive U.S. debut. The album drops Sept. 18.
Meanwhile, Jepsen and her teenaged mentor are both up for Moonmen at the 2012 MTV VMAs Thursday night. Bieber is nominated for Male Video of the Year, while Jepsen will go head-to-head with One Direction for Best New Artist.
