Sorry, but a Justin Bieber and Colombian reggaeton singer J. Balvin Latin remix of “Sorry” makes absolute sense. Which is a good thing because “Sorry — Justin Bieber feat. J. Balvin” is here.
The team-up was teased by Justin and Jose on their social media accounts on Thursday night and really is — as Billboard put it — a perfect intersection between a “mainstream pop star[s] and Latin idol[s.]”
As announced, the remixed “Sorry” dropped onto iTunes and Spotify. Take a listen below.
We sort of saw this coming when the two Js met in Los Angeles back in July during the Special Olympics World Games Opening Ceremony and shared a memorable exchange in which Balvin taught his soon-to-be Canadian brother from another mother some Colombian slang. Fittingly, he taught him how to say the word "parcero" or "bro," though by now surely Bieber has added a few more choice words to his Spanish vocabulary.
