DJ Khaled has released a new track, âNo Brainerâ, which features vocals from Chance The Rapper, Migosâs Quavo and one Justin Bieber. Itâs a partial reunion of the guest list that appeared on last yearâs âIâm The Oneâ â missing only Lil Wayne. But what people seem to be most interested in is what Bieberâs lyrics on the track may or may not have to say about Shawn Mendes.
Mendes, you see, is the ex-boyfriend of Bieberâs fiancĂ©e Hailey Baldwin. I mean, maybe. Mendes and Baldwinâs rumoured relationship was a hot topic in gossip columns and on social media, although they regularly maintained that they were just friends. Then last month Baldwin and Bieber officially got back together, having split up in 2016, promptly getting engaged.
Anyway, now Iâve infected your brain with all this nonsense too, hereâs the latest development. On this new DJ Khaled track, Bieber sings âYou stick out of the crowd, baby, itâs a no-brainer / It ainât that hard to choose / Him or me, be for real, baby, itâs a no-brainerâ.
So, obviously what heâs saying there is that Hailey Baldwin is so good looking that his decision to chose her as a potential mate is pretty simple. However, she has another suitor, and she must chose between the two of them. That said, Bieber is clearly the better option, so her decision, like his, should be taken in an instant in his favour.
Of course it might also be that the lyrics are super generic and donât really mean anything at all. I mean, they sort of relate back to the track âIâm The Oneâ, which came out over a year ago, and also sees Bieber pleading with a girl to select him over all others. So maybe itâs just a continuation of a theme deemed relatable to consumers.
But the possibility of it being a genuine dig at Mendes is a better story, I guess. And there are other lines that hint at animosity between the two singers. For example, âPop the top, drop-top, baby itâs a no-brainerâ is obviously a dig at Mendesâs famous clumsiness when opening jars.
Anyway, the track is taken from DJ Khaledâs new album âFather Of Asahdâ, which came out on Friday.Â Hereâs the video for âNo Brainerâ:
