On Wednesday, Justin Bieber tweeted a link to a special Grammy video in which the 16-year-old pop star talks about the first song he ever performed, his musical inspirations and musical journey as a whole.
The video begins with Justin performing an acoustic cover of 'Fast Car' by Tracy Chapman, and we know for sure that a certain special someone approves. On January 30, Selena Gomez sent out a simple tweet, name-checking the '80s song.
"Fast Car - Tracy Chapman," she wrote. Two days later, Justin posted a link to the video in which he's filmed singing that same song. Coincidence? We think not.
But JB may also have chosen to cover the smash single because Tracy won Best New Artist in 1989, the same category that Justin is nominated in this year. 'Fast Car' was a huge hit, and also scored her a Grammy for Song of the Year.
The clip also shows Justin talking about his musical and personal influences, including his mom, Michael Jackson, Prince and Usher. He also calls out Ozzy Osbourne as an inspiration, and offers the camera a little smirk after he says it. Could this be a nod to his upcoming Super Bowl commercial with the heralded hard rocker?
Watch the video and see for yourself. The 53rd Annual Grammy Awards will air on Sunday, February 13 at 8 p.m. on CBS.
