Justin Bieber has really been pushing “Yummy,” and his efforts have paid off. The song is a hit, and he’s far from done with it. He previously released a remix of the song featuring Summer Walker, but now he has taken the track in a completely different direction with a new country remix featuring Florida Georgia Line.
FGL actually has a bit of a pre-existing connection with Bieber: Their 2016 single “H.O.L.Y.” nearly became a Bieber song before the group ended up recording it. The band’s Tyler Hubbard also confirmed in 2015 that he is a “belieber,” sharing a screenshot of Bieber’s song “Purpose” and writing on Instagram, “I’m officially a #belieber … This song is anointed. It’s cool watching a boy become a man. #music=healing.”
Meanwhile, Bieber is not a stranger to country music: “10,000 Hours,” his recent collaborative single with country duo Dan + Shay, was another chart success for Bieber. Coincidentally, the song also broke a chart record that was previously held by Florida Georgia Line.
