Justin Bieber Praises Meghan Trainor’s “Mistletoe” Cover — WATCH VIDEO!
Justin Bieber and Meghan Trainor’s mutual appreciation is growing. More than a month after he recorded a remix of “All About That Bass,” Trainor has returned the sentiment by covering his song “Mistletoe.” Watch below!
Bieber released the holiday track back in 2011 as the least single from his Christmas album, Under The Mistletoe. The song peaked at number 11 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, but went all the way to number two on the U.S. Adult Contemporary chart, becoming a gold record in the States.
Now three years since the “Mistletoe” release, Trainor performed her own version of the song at a concert for 1LIVE radio in Germany. Bieber tweeted the video on Sunday, writing, “Nice job @Meghan_Trainor. #Mistletoe :)”
Trainor was similarly impressed by Bieber’s take on “All About That Bass.” As Gossip Cop reported in October, Maejor Ali initially released a solo remix, and then a second with Bieber. The producer explained to Billboard, “Not soon after [the first remix] went out Meghan heard it, then Justin heard it, and shortly after they asked me to pull my version down so that the collaboration could happen. And that’s the dopest part.”
For more holiday music from Trainor, fans can look to Epic Records’ I’ll Be Home For Christmas compilation, which features the rising star singing “I’ll Be Home,” along with songs from Fifth Harmony, Sara Bareilles, and more. Check out the “Mistletoe” video below, and tell us what you think!
