Skrillex Guides Bieber Toward Trop House?

If there was ever a track that had infinite storylines, it would be Justin Bieber's new single below. Let's see...where do we start, the production by Skrillex is noteworthy because he's single-handedly provided Bieber a golden pathway toward EDM with Where Are U Now? and now What Do You Mean?. As a side note, this trending toward Trop House movement that Skrillex has been drifting toward of late is a nice revelation. I could have gone through a list of 30 DJs who could have produced the song below and Skrillex probably wouldn't have been on that list. That alone is a pretty awesome development.

I'm fascinated that Bieber, who seems to be nearly universally disliked for his entitled-ness, is starting to carve a different niche for himself and somehow finding a way to become more likable. I don't know how in the hell he found a way to collaborate with the widely respected Diplo and Skrillex, but whatever happened worked well enough the first time that it happened again. And I'll admit, I do like the track below even though my gut is still telling me I shouldn't support the Biebs. I'd liken it to your best friend becoming friends with a complete a-hole. You're gonna support your best friend no matter what, but this new friend he made is not someone you want to associate with. What do you do in the long run? Time will tell, but call me befuddled, flabergasted and just generally perturbed because I feel like I just tasted something I'm allergic to and actually liked it...#WhatDoYouMean
