justin bieber was reportedly supposed to record ‘for you’
The ‘Baby’ hitmaker was apparently the first choice for the Fifty Shades Freed single…
We’re only 10 days into the year and we’re already pretty certain that ‘For You’ will be one of our Top 10 songs of 2018. The Rita Ora and Liam Payne collaboration for Fifty Shades Freed is a musical triumph and it looks set to dominate the charts all year.
However, it could have sounded very different. Justin Bieber was the original choice to record it.
NO. WE’RE NOT JOKING. WE COULD HAVE HEARD JUSTIN’S VOCALS ON ‘FOR YOU’.
Speaking with the Daily Star, a source revealed: “Originally Universal Pictures wanted Justin Bieber to sing a song on the soundtrack, either with or without Rita. He’s the biggest male pop star in the world and so that’s what they aimed for.” Interesting.
The possibility of a Justin/Rita duet is amazing and Justin would sound great on ‘For You’.
The sourced then added: “They had the world’s biggest female pop star in Taylor Swift do the last film, so they were keen for something a bit different because Zayn Malik sang that with her and he comes from One Direction as well [as Liam Payne].”
That seems to make to sense but we’re glad that Liam ended up on the single in the end.
He’s so talented and his vocals compliment Rita’s perfectly on the cinematic new single.
Perhaps Justin and Rita could collaborate on a different song?
Imagine if the two of them recorded a duet for their albums.
