After years of hiatus, Justin Bieber is finally back with some new music for his fans. And he’s already teased them with an upcoming pop song titled, ‘La Bomba’, which just so happens to be a bilingual single. This is how the 25-year-old Canadian musician recorded it despite not being able to speak Spanish.
What Singers Do Best
In an episode of ‘Justin Bieber: Seasons’, a docuseries he made with the video platform Youtube, he reveals that he’s just good at imitating just like other singers. ‘I can hear it and then repeat it’, Bieber said. He even practices goes the extra mile to get things right by practicing his Spanish pronunciation in the recording studio.
The first four episodes of his Youtube series is reportedly already available for viewing. ‘Seasons’ has 10 parts in total.
With a Little Help
The video also showed Bieber being helped by Josh Gudwin, a mixer, and producer, in vocalizing the words to the song. The singer didn’t shy away from asking questions, especially when going through some of the more difficult phrases in ‘La Bomba’. Likewise, Gudwin didn’t seem to hesitate in correcting Bieber and suggesting better ways for him to sing the lyrics.
It’s worth noting though that this isn’t the pop singer’s first foray into singing in Spanish. Just a couple of years back he sang feature on a remix of the no.1 hit ‘Despacito’. According to the song’s original artist Luis Fonsi, it was Bieber who wanted the remix after he heard the song while at a club. The Puerto Rican singer also lauded him for wanting to appeal to the Latin community and even get the pronunciation of the song’s lyrics right.
The artists comeback will culminate in the upcoming album ‘Changes’, which will be released on Valentine’s Day this year. His last full-length album is ‘Purpose’, released in 2015. It still remains unconfirmed whether the song ‘La Bomba’ will be included in it. A concert tour for the album has been announced though.
