Justin Bieber, Usher + Pharrell Talk About Vocals on Christmas Album While in the Studio
Justin Bieber's 'Under the Mistletoe' is finally upon us, landing tomorrow, Nov. 1, like freshly fallen snow. In honor of this momentous holiday occasion, The Biebs released a TwitVid of him in the studio, with his mentor (and collaborator) Usher and producer Pharrell.
The dudes are in the studio, with a baseball capped Biebs leaning on the console. Usher is to one side with his feet up, and Pharrell to his other, topped by a quirky captain's hat. They all look chill, relaxed and easy going, happy that the finished product lands tomorrow.
However, there's a key moment in which Pharrell says he is impressed with The Biebs' vocals. If you've heard 'Under the Mistletoe' tracks -- and no doubt, you have, thanks to PopCrush's song reviews -- you'll instantly notice that the Biebs' vocals are lower than they were two years ago as his voice deepens with age. Usher, like a good papa bear, reminds his protégé that Pharrell's words are a huge compliment and that people are buzzing about how his voice has changed and has risen as he ages.
This is no ordinary holiday album. The Biebs is stepping into a whole new (my) world.
