Justin Bieber has released an acoustic version of his song ‘Intentions,’ from his most recent album Changes. Originally featuring Quavo, the track is a love song to their partners — Hailey Bieber and Saweetie, respectively — and features plenty of compliments directed toward them. You can check the acoustic version of ‘Intentions’ out below.
“Shout-out to your mom and dad for makin’ you/Standin’ ovation, they did a great job raisin’ you,” Bieber sings over an acoustic guitar. “When I create, you’re my muse/That kind of smile that makes the news.” There’s no Quavo verse on this version, but Bieber makes up for it with plenty of guitar-strumming and vocal ad-libs.
Earlier this month, Bieber and Quavo performed ‘Intentions’ on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, bouncing around in a glowing box with several back-up dancers.
Bieber released the hotly-anticipated Changes this past February. Along with notching the top spot on the Billboard 200, the album also debuted at No.1 on Billboard Top R&B Albums chart, a first for the pop icon. It also reached No.1 in the UK and Canada, as well as hitting the top iTunes album in 85 countries. Bieber now holds the top spot across multiple genres, including No.1 R&B song for ‘Intentions’ featuring Quavo and No.1 Country song for ‘10,000 Hours’ with Dan + Shay.
The seventh album in the Grammy award- winning artist’s catalogue has already surpassed one million in the first week of global consumption, proving Changes was worth the wait. Over his 11-year career, Bieber has amassed over 50 billion streams worldwide and over 60 million album sales.
Bieber was originally scheduled to embark on a stadium tour in support of Changes, but the tour was downsized in certain venues due to concerns over the spread of coronavirus. It’s just one of the many live event series to be modified, postponed or cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. At the time of writing, the Changes Tour is still scheduled to kick off on its original date, 14 May, in Seattle, Washington, with Jaden Smith and Kehlani as supporting acts.
