Justin Bieber, Lil Wayne Look to Outer Space on ‘Backpack’


Justin Bieber‘s new album, ‘Journals,’ contains five unreleased tracks in addition to the 10 collected ‘#MusicMondays’ songs he’s been releasing as of late. The new tunes feature a high-caliber guest list, including the mid-tempo ‘Backpack,’ which features a verse from Lil Wayne.

‘Backpack’ features a slight switch-up from Bieber’s other romantic R&B tracks in the ‘#MusicMondays’ series. This time, the singer finds a love interest that’s landed from outer space. He isn’t just romancing the extraterrestrial, however. Bieber offers a bit of exposition that reveals, “They’re gonna try to take away the secrets of your planet’s life / I know you must be upset, you lost your family in a wreck.”

Lil Wayne is less sympathetic. While Bieber’s love interest is struggling, the rapper seems to be interested in giving himself props. “When I die they gonna name this planet after me / Wayne’s world,” he raps before the guitar solo kicks in.

The four other songs on ‘Journals’ feature Future, Big Sean and Diplo. The compilation effort is available now on iTunes.
