Justin Bieber sports dreadlocks in Skrillex's song, fans worry he will be 'dragged again’
Bieber was spotted in dreadlocks in the still which meant the MV was shot a few months ago. In May 2021 he was dragged for sporting the hairstyle
Just a week after hopping on Nigerian singer WizKid’s remix of his hit single ‘Essence’, Justin Bieber is gearing up for another hot collaboration. The Canadian pop star is now teaming up with his close friend Skrillex and crooner Don Toliver for a yet-untitled single. Announced by the renowned electronic music producer Skrillex on his Instagram account, Bieber too shared the post on his social media accounts.
However, before the fans could get excited for Bieber and Skrillex reuniting after a gap of seven years, a picture shared from the music video of the upcoming song has the 'Baby' hitmaker's followers worried for him. Bieber was spotted rocking the dreadlocks which meant the MV was shot a few months ago and since the 27-year-old crooner was slammed for his dreads earlier, fans did not want the singer to be dragged again into the controversy. Talking about Skrillex and Bieber’scollaboration, they first joined hands on the viral hit ‘Where Are U Now’ in 2015 that also featured Diplo in the mix.

Why fans got worried about Justin Bieber’s dreads?
The official still shared from the new song sees Skrillex, Justin Bieber and Don Toliver posing in front of a black vintage car. Bieber can be spotted in the middle donning a black printed hoodie with a pair of denim and sneakers. Fans also noticed the singer rocking his dreadlocks which was a cause for concern as the award-winning singer-songwriter had received a lot of flak for debuting his new look in May 2021. Another still was shared from the MV that shows the trio’s back to the camera.
Bieber was accused of cultural appropriation and White privilege and his loyal fans did not want this to be repeated again. Bieber had faced a similar situation when he debuted an almost same look in 2016. However, just like always, the ‘Lonely’ hitmaker did not pay attention to his controversies. For the unversed, the singer now sports a short hairstyle – very close to the buzz cut.
