Justin calls on Lil Uzi Vert, DaBaby, Jaden, and Quavo for “Justice (Triple Chucks Deluxe).”
3. THERE SHE GO
I saw a Justin Bieber and Lil Uzi Vert collaboration coming from a mile away (I swear).
Do you know what I love about Justin Bieber? He doesn’t change who he is, even when he does collaborations with other artists. With that being said, “There She Go” is your stereotypical Justin pop banger that features a beat that you can hopscotch to, infectious melodies, feel-good vibes, and PG lyrics. The only thing that is unique about the song is that it features a pretty vulnerable verse by emo trap superstar Lil Uzi Vert!
2. I CAN’T BE MYSELF
I’m old enough to remember when Justin Bieber and Jaden linked up for “Never Say Never” in 2010. Eleven years later, they decided to reunite, and ironically, what they provide us with is a track that sounds like it was made in the late 60s.
You’re going to want to frolic through a sunflower garden while you listen to “I Can’t Be Myself.” The song features an instrumental that oozes feel-good vibes, captivating melodies, and adorable lyrics (The two musicians talk about being the best versions of themselves when their significant others are by their sides). Justin and Jaden Smith are on the same page so much in this song, I almost can’t tell who is who…
1. KNOW NO BETTER
If you would’ve told me that DaBaby would be on a Justin Bieber song two years ago, I would’ve told you that you needed the slap of a lifetime (Sometimes, a good slap knocks sense into folks).
You probably thought that Justin Bieber’s heartwarming style would not blend with DaBaby’s grungy style, right? Well, on “Know No Better,” the two make quite the tandem! In the song, Justin and DaBaby hit us with vocal performances that are soothing (Yes, DaBaby actually sings a little in the song), Justin hits us with lyrics that will let you know that romance isn’t dead, and DaBaby hits us with a sly rap verse that gives the smooth song the kick it needs.

6. NAME (4/5)
Justin Bieber should’ve called this deluxe version of Justice “Justice (The rap version).” Four out of the six songs on it feature superstar rappers. Do you know what I find interesting, though? Justin never really enters the worlds of his guests; he forces his guests to enter his world (That’s definitely bold).
Unlike a good chunk of the deluxe albums that release, this particular one is a perfect extension of its daddy. Justice (Triple Chucks Deluxe) features nothing but joyous pop tracks that are jam-packed with feel-good vibes and lyrics. Some will say that Justin played it safe with this deluxe, but I say he smartly stayed true to a sound that is supposedly working for him.
