Justin Bieber, Kendall Jenner, Ariana Grande & Pals Lip-Sync Jepsen's 'I Really Like You'

Yas! Justin Bieber, Kendall Jenner, Ariana Grande & Pals Lip-Sync In ‘I Really Like You’ Video

Justin Bieber is helping out Carly Rae Jepsen once more. In a just-dropped video set to Jepsen’s recent single, “I Really Like You,” the mostly shirtless heartthrob lip-syncs while goofing around with help from Kendall Jenner, Ariana Grande, Rixton, Lance Bass, South Korea’s CL, and more.

On Tuesday, the Biebs posted the star-power-meets-madcap clip to YouTube, with a brief description that read, “Decided to make a fun cover with a bunch of friends of Carly’s new song ‘I Really Like You,’ ” adding, “Love this song. everyone make their own.”

Within an hour, Billboard reported “I Really Like You” had soared to No 1. on their Twitter-centric Trending 140 chart. Which is terrific news for Carly and Justin — who may have a stake in his fellow Canadian’s success — and mutual manager Scooter Braun, who makes an appearance in the spot-the-famous-face fest.

Bieber did the same thing for Jepsen’s breakout slayer “Call Me Maybe” in 2012, with the assistance of then-girlfriend Selena Gomez and Ashley Tisdale in more innocent times.

That lip-sync extravaganza went on to become an iconic video. Will the same viral magic happen with Bieber and friends’ “I Really Like You”?

Possibly.

In this new video — which appears to have been partly filmed during Justin’s drama-filled visit to Coachella this past weekend with Kendall and pals, and also backstage at Ariana’s recent Honeymoon tour show in Los Angeles — the group dance in synchronized moves, jump around, pull funny faces, ride Segways, and generally have fun.

The lip-sync lineup also includes Ariana’s brother, Frankie; Justin’s dad, Jeremy; pal, Ryan Butler; videographer Alfredo Flores, Rixton, CL, Gigi Hadid’s step-father, legendary music producer David Foster; Viner Matthew Espinosa, Justin’s cute new puppy Esther, Empire’s Bryshere Gray, The Voice candidate Kimberly Nichole, and the designer Jeremy Scott.

Obviously, Esther.

The Biebs mouthing “I’m pregnant.” To which, Kendall responds “OK.”

Yes, the whole thing is more self-aware than 2012’s “Call Me Maybe,” and the landscape for Bieber has changed vastly since then.

But, at least for the few minutes that it holds your attention, the pop culture joy that is “I Really Like You” version 2.0 is here for all of us to enjoy. Thank you, Justin Bieber.
