Jack Ü – Where Are Ü Now feat. Justin Bieber (The Knocks Bootleg)
It may still be spring, but The Knocks have already put their spin on three of summer’s biggest hits-to-be as part of their aptly named Summer Bootleg Series. First they touched up Carly Rae Jepsen’s Dev Hynes-assisted “All That,” and last week they made Post Malone’s “White Iverson” sparkle. On the third installment of the series, Ben and James take on a song that’s well on its way to being one of the summer’s big anthems: Jack Ü and Justin Bieber‘s “Where Are Ü Now.” They craft a glittery, glossy instrumental that suits Bieber’s voice perfectly; his vocals glide effortlessly over the track as though they were recorded for The Knocks’ funky new beat in the first place. Everything from the pan flutes to the percussion clicks together beautifully, and the bootleg is the best yet in an already enormously impressive series.
