It’s about time fellow Canadians Bieber Fever and Drake joined their musical talents to create another hit track. The collab, “Right Here,” is as expected, nothing particularly worthy of getting your panties in a bunch. The track carries neither the heavy, sultry beats Drake is known for or the super addictive pop hooks of the Biebs.
However, it’s pretty decent over all – something of a subtle jam you’d put on as background music. The song floats on airy synths and scratches, Drake’s and Bieber’s voices blend seamlessly into one another. The overall theme of the song is, of course, typical Drizzy and Biebs. The latter spends the better half of the track attempting to convince the listener of why he’s the one, singing, “I would never ever put nobody else above you / I just wanna kiss you, baby/ I just wanna hug you till the end.” Drake’s mellow crooning wraps up everything neatly, his deeper tones anchoring the song.
Oh, and did we mention the new lyric video is a pretty impressive show of clay animation? Well, it is, and it should tide you over until the real deal is released.
