There’s probably no better way to win back your first love than by showing off your bowling skills, your celebrity pals and your dance moves. At least that’s what [artist id="3187077"]Justin Bieber[/artist] attempts to do in his just-released “Baby” video , which premiered online on Friday (February 19).
With a cameo by fellow Canadian [artist id="2545682"]Drake[/artist] and Ludacris, who also raps on the track , the video is a sugary-sweet story of the 15-year-old Bieber trying to win back a girl who is clearly reluctant to give him another chance. What did he do wrong? Perhaps we’ll never know, but during the clip we see him doing everything he possibly can to win her back.
MTV News was on set with Bieber earlier this month, and the young superstar explained the story. “It starts off, I really like this girl, but we didn’t [get] along; we couldn’t be together,” he said. “Basically I want her back and [I'm] kind of going through the whole thing. I’m chasing her around, trying to get her, and she’s kind of playing hard to get, but I’m persistent. I keep going.”
Does he bowl a good game? Check. Does he dance for her? Check. Does he goof around with both Drake and Luda? Double check. Ludacris told MTV News that the video is meant to be a 2010 version of Michael Jackson’s “The Way You Make Me Feel,” and the choreography does use a few of Jackson’s less-suggestive moves.
Although most of the video takes place in the bowling alley, there are also scenes of Bieber in other settings, hanging out with Luda, doing the moonwalk, messing with his hair and mugging for the camera. Regardless of his lady’s apparent frustration with him, Bieber eventually wins her over. The video concludes with the pair walking off into the night holding hands.
