Carly Rae Jepsen and Justin Bieber are label-mates, so it’s only fitting that their upcoming duet should be a friendship ballad. Of the song, ‘Beautiful’, which will be on her debut album ‘Kiss’, Jepsen says, It's kind of like a friendship ballad, it's kind of charming and it's sweet and a little bit of a different flavour to what I have on my album too. So I will say charming, friendly and hopefully feel-good, I think it's like a feel-good song for sure."
On terms of what it was like to work with Bieber, Jepsen says "He was just a regular guy, so nice, so talented but at the same time really humble about it and played me some songs from his record Believe and one of the tunes was the song Beautiful and he'd written it with a good friend and producer that we both know, named Tony Gad. I remember just thinking 'wow, this is such a different flavour that I'd ever think of doing, it's really cool' and he asked me if I'd like to sing on it. Of course, I was very excited to do that, and we did it that night. I was going to go to bed but they were like 'why don't you just jump into the studio tonight and finish the song right now?' So, fifteen minutes later I was in the vocal booth."
Jepsen adds that Bieber has been a great supporter of her career, and that she couldn’t have asked for a bigger gift than Justin going to Canada and supporting her work.
