Justin Bieber fans have plenty to grin about now that the teen superstar’s latest video is here. Bieber’s “U Smile” clip premiered on Thursday (September 30) and features the Canadian sensation indulging in something he probably doesn’t get a lot of these days: privacy.
The clip begins in black-and-white (and later incorporates scenes of color) as the “Somebody to Love” singer is approached by a crew of cheery tween fans who ask to snap a pic with the Biebs. The singer, of course, obliges and invites one of the lucky ladies out for a rendezvous later that evening. The two sneak into an empty theater and have lots of moments of PG intimacy, holding hands, horsing around on the theater’s seats, sliding down banisters and making each other giggle. They wrap up the date with a playful back-alley water fight and collapse into each other’s arms.
Bieber has said the video is about letting fans experience the ultimate fantasy for any hard-core Belieber: being Justin’s girlfriend.
“I took the opportunity 2 make a video 4 the fans, about a fan, and how we could fall IN LOVE,” he tweeted about the clip. “Love Grows. #LoveGrows.”
Hit visuals like “Baby” and “One Time” show off the teen idol’s footwork and peppy teenage swagger, but “U Smile” suggests a more mature Bieber, who appears to relish the quiet moments with his gal pal away from the nonstop fan hysteria. The clip also displays his skills as an instrumentalist, as he belts out the lyrics from behind a grand piano throughout much of the vid.
“It really is a throwback to the great records I listened to growing up,” Bieber tweeted about the track earlier this year. “I wrote it for all my fans who got me here.”
