The Biebs put a reggae spin on the hit while being backed by a live band at Marine Tavern in Laguna Beach, California.
Justin Bieber surprised the crowd with an impromptu mini concert when he made an appearance at a random California bar on Sunday night, December 13. The Canadian heartthrob joined the live band at Marine Tavern in Laguna Beach for a cover of Drake’s “Hotline Bling”.
A video for the performance, taken by someone in the audience, surfaced online on Monday. In the short clip, the Biebs wore a gray hoodie and a beanie of the same color as he put a reggae spin on Drizzy’s hit single. He also delivered a rendition of his own track “Sorry” during his surprise set.
Prior to performing the song live, Bieber sent the internet into a frenzy when dropped his “Hotline Bling” remix back in October. He may break into the song again at the upcoming concerts on his “Purpose” tour, which he will launch next year to support his chart-topping latest album of the same title.
The tour’s North American leg opens on March 9 in Seattle and includes stops in 57 other cities in the U.S. and Canada before wrapping up on July 18 in New York City.
