Baby Music Video: A Blonde Bieber Tries to Win His Love Interest!
We do not know why it is the 2nd most disliked video. It stars Justin Bieber, Jasmine Villegas, and Ludacris. For us, its music video looks cool. Everything about it seems perfect. From Bieber’s dance moves to Jasmine’s style and attitude. In this video, you will get to see a young Bieber with blonde hair.
The video shows young Bieber and Jasmine. The action begins in a bowling arena. Bieber is seen chasing Jasmine, trying to win her. However, she seems not interested. Still, Bieber keeps on trying. In addition, Justin and Ludacris are seen dancing and doing the famous Moonwalk. You will also see a few dance-offs between Justin’s and Jasmine’s friends. Eventually, she smiles and he wins her. In the end, both are seen walking into a nightclub, hand in hand.
This garnered mixed reviews at a global level. Billboard shared, “Those dance moves he is showing off can only mean one thing: all over the world, tweens’ hearts are melting right now”.
Despite all the criticism, Baby’s music made a mark.
Baby is predominately an up-tempo with a backdrop that features a dance-infused beat. Moreover, it incorporates disco string and keyboard synths. Bieber’s strong R & B vocals aptly fit the beat. The song also has some elements of hip-hop and some major dance-pop. It also uses doo-wop music.
Andy Rosen at Rolling stones shared his thoughts on Baby’s music. He wrote, “Blends winks at fifties doo-wop with hip-hop chants”.
So, do you love or hate Baby?
