“The combination of Bieber’s moving falsetto and Skrillex and Diplo’s tangled knot of beats makes “Where Are Ü Now” a deserved (and much-needed) triumph”. Fans were invited to draw on the video stills, which were then reassembled to form the video. It has some mad animations, and Bieber’s face basically turns into a Jackson Pollock painting at one point. I’ll ignore for now the rumors that Skrillex has little-to-nothing to do artistically with the Jack Ü project, especially because, at least in this song, I’m pretty sure I’m vibing more to whatever Diplo brought to the table.
The most likely reason for that, is fans wanted to clearly see the kaleidoscopic, graffiti art and painted imagery that explodes throughout the highly anticipated video.
Justin Bieber is the featured actor in the video singing his parts as the various pieces of art and paint flash over his body and around him on the screen. “We walk a fine line by being “famous” and in the public eye but we are only here because of you, the fans”.
Justin Bieber in “Where Are Ü Now“. The track is the second cut from the Skrillex and Diplo Present Jack Ü album which was released in February. This morning, the long-awaited music video for the track premiered on Good Morning America, ABC News reported. Confidence is always key and something we should all get behind.
Jack U released a statement on their Facebook account describing how the song was written during a hard time in Bieber’s life, and how their fans have gotten them to where they are today.
