Justin Bieber drops new R&Bieber single 'Yummy' shortly after accepting goalie's shootout challenge
Justin Bieber has been a busy man these past few days. His new single 'Yummy' off his forthcoming 'R&Bieber' album has just dropped! You can listen to the brand-new single here. Recently, he also took on the public one-on-one challenge issued to him by the St. Louis Blues goalkeeper, Jordan Binnington.
It all started when the Blues' goalie Binnington issued a friendly shootout challenge to Justin Bieber on January 1 via Instagram, where he dared the 'Baby' singer to score on him at least once if he was given 10 breakaway chances to do so.
"10 breakaways me vs. you. You score one on me I'll dye my hair platinum blonde," read the goalie's tongue-in-cheek comment. Binnington’s post received more than 2,100 likes. Bieber, being a good sport that he is, decided to renegotiate Binnington's wager for even bigger stakes. "How bout 10 thousand dollars to charity I score and you donate to a charity of my choice and we film it," countered the 25-year-old singer.
This was clearly prompted by the fact that Justin had recently scored a backhand goal in a pickup hockey game with Maple Leaf players Auston Matthews, Mitch Marner and Tyson Barrie. Afterward, the Leafs winger Marner said that Bieber "was actually better than I thought" and noted he had pretty nifty stickwork and a good shot in his arsenal. Maybe that was what piqued Jordan Binnington's curiosity! The Stanley Cup-winning goalie is yet to respond to the fresh terms of the challenge, however.
Bieber also recently clarified that his forthcoming album is “not pop", but rather R&B influenced. When a Twitter account mentioned that Justin Bieber's upcoming fifth studio album was one of the most anticipated pop albums of 2020 (according to Forbes), Justin took it upon himself to clarify the new sound that he had embraced on his latest album.
He tweeted back a reply, saying "Not pop. r&bieber @poobear." As you recall, Bieber had earlier tried to trademark the phrase "R&Bieber" and also name-dropped his long-time collaborator, the producer Poo Bear, who helped co-wrote majority of the songs on Bieber's albums 'Journals' and 'Purpose'.
And after dropping teaser after teaser for his new single 'Yummy', his Beliebers were certainly primed and eager to hear the full song! You can listen to it here now!
