If you thought Justin Bieber‘s “Yummy” was missing that special dash of down-home cooking then JB’s got just the dish for you. The Changes singer dropped the country-fried remix of his hit single on Wednesday morning (Feb. 19), roping in Florida Georgia Line‘s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley to give the song some southern swing.
In addition to tasty banjo and pedal steel over the pop trap beats of the song that peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, the trio tricked up the lyrics and Bieber adds a distintctive twang to his vocals to fit in with his country compatriots. Following a brief intro from Hubbard and Kelley, Bieber’s first run through the chrous is essentially unchanged — save for the giddy-up in the music — but the first verse gets a definitive makeover.
“Bona fide stallion/ In no stable, no you stay on the run/ Ain’t on the side, you’re number one/ Yeah, every time I come around you get ‘er done,” Bieber drawls, adding some lyrics about riding horses and watching sunsets in the pre-chorus.
Things get even more rustic in the FGL verse. “I been up in Waffle House, but you my Chik-fil-A/ And I been into waffle fries since our first date/ Ain’t got time for playin’, I’ma clean your whole plate (Girl, I’ma lick it up)/ Woo, yes, yummy, let me take ya to the country/ We can call it home cookin’, I’m your chicken, you my dumpling,” they sing over the track’s laid-back bounce.
Bieber earned his first No. 1 on the Country Airplay charts in January when he collaborated with Dan + Shay on “10,000 Hours,” which topped four charts at once adn this week tops the multi-metric Hot Country Songs chart for a 19th week, the fourth-longest command in the chart’s history. He also recently released a “Yummy” remix with Summer Walker.
