Drake Wishes Bieber Cursed On his Remix
R’n’B star Drake was convinced that teen superstar Justin
Bieber would show his "transformation" into a young man by keeping
all the curse words in when he showed his admiration for Drake's work
by releasing an unofficial cover of the track last month (August 2011). But
Bieber made sure his verse on the tune was suitable for his young fan-base by
changing Drake's references to his lovers as "b**ches" to the more
respectful "women". He also altered Drake's line, "F*** it, I'm
on one", to "You know I'm on one."
The pop star's move to censor the lyrics has left the
Forever rapper a little downbeat. He tells MTV News, "I wish he would've
left all the cuss words in it. I feel like that would've been so G [gangsta],
if he would've done all the swearing. I was excited when I heard he remixed it,
because there was like a gang of swearing in that song. I was like, 'Oh, we're
about to hear the transformation of Bieber.'"
Frankly, speaking from the point of view of so-called "b**ches",
we’re rather proud that Justin dissed Drake’s original. Well done, Biebs.
