You know you’re doing something right when you contribute two tracks to Jay-Z and Kanye West‘s Watch The Throne album and have your own song covered by Justin Bieber IN THE SAME YEAR! Yeah, we’d venture to say this may be the best year of Frank Ocean‘s life.
We’ve been seriously digging on the sweet sounds of Frank Ocean for a while now, but perhaps one of our favorite tracks is Frank’s falsetto-laden “Thinking About You.” And I guess our taste matches Justin Bieber’s (OMG, #soulmates) since the Biebs recently put his own spin on the Ocean jam.
We’re continually surprised by how adult Justin’s voice sounds (read: if he wasn’t underage, we’d deem his vocal performance a “panty-dropper”). In his smooth, pop/R&B way Justin fantasizes about Selena Gomez delivers Frank’s sexy verse like a boss: “Do you not think so far ahead?/’Cause I’ve been thinking ’bout forever.” Justin’s BFF Jaden Smith pops up next, and he adds his own I’m-from-the-Smith-family-and-I-was-born-with mad-swag vibe to Justin’s gorgeous verse: “People say you really like me/And I hope it’s true/You my baby girl/And I hope you know it/A boy will tell you that he loves you/But a man will show it.”
So now both Jaden and Justin are all like, “I’m a tiny teenage man and can still take care of you”? Is it totally off if I’m a little into that?
