Very few artists in the industry have had a career like that of Justin Bieber, which is exactly why the Canadian star is capable of putting out just about anything, and still receiving a massive outpouring of love from his fans – tonight’s single, “I Feel Funny” is proof of that.
If you listen to the track without understanding the backstory, you may wonder what Bieber had in mind while he was putting together the one-minute and 15-second long title. Luckily, over on the Lyrical Lemonade YouTube page, Cole Bennett broke things down for us in the music video’s description.
“Justin randomly texted me this song one day and said, ‘Should we do a visual to this? Song straight to number 1,'” he wrote. “We joked around about doing a video for it but never did. A few weeks later we were doing a pickup day for a video we had recently shot but never finished, (‘Honest’).”
“We had a bit of time switching over from scene to scene. So, I went into his trailer and said “Remember that song you sent me? Let’s shoot a video for it on my phone in between takes of the actual video… The rest was history. Enjoy.”
