Bieber takes lead vocals on “Cold Water,” whose guitar-based instrumental makes the track decidedly more mellow than his last major guest feature on a Diplo tune, Jack Ü’s “Where Are Ü Now.”
“I won’t let go / I’ll be your lifeline tonight,” Bieber sings at the song’s chorus. “If you feel you’re sinking / I will jump right over / Into cold, cold water for you."
It’s definitely the least angsty song to come from Bieber in a minute. Maybe he’s finally used up that well of drama that powered last year’s singles like “Sorry” and “What Do You Mean?"
