Jack Ü’s “Where Are Ü Now” with Justin Bieber is a certified hit. In fact, it’s actually certified gold. But for every success, there’s another story behind the scenes.
In this case, the version of “Where Are Ü Now” before Jack Ü got their hands on it. Co-produced by Jason “Poo Bear” Boyd, the original was a soft and tender ballad, meant to showcase a different side of Bieber.
“This was the version that was cut before Diplo and Skrillex actually got a hold of it and put that incredible sound on it,” Poo Bear said on Dash Radio (via Just Jared). “It just went gold actually yesterday, congratulations Jack Ü & Justin. If I’m not mistaken, this version will go on his album.”
