Justin Bieber’s first tweet for 2014 is a music video gift for his fans that mashes up two of his songs, “Hold Tight” and “One Less Lonely Girl.”
Apparently the 19-year-old isn’t wallowing in a dark room somewhere over the critical and commercial failure of his latest film, Believe, at the US box office.
“Some fun for you on New Years. Hold tight meets Ollg,” the teen singer tweeted on New Year’s Day before linking to the video.
The four minute visual mixes Justin’s explicit “Hold Tight” song from his new Journals album with Believe tour footage of female fans onstage, as Bieber serenades them with his 2009 hit “One Less Lonely Girl.”
Shorthanded to “OLLG” by fans, over time “One Less Lonely Girl” has morphed into something of a high-point at shows as it’s the moment one girl is chosen from the audience to share the stage with the heartthrob.
The moment takes on a whole new meaning as Justin embraces various pretty young things onstage to lyrics such as:
“Don’t let this go to your head But you’re the best I’ve ever had / Not to mention that thing is swollen…”
“You got me oh so in the trance, Something like a zip lock, but a lip lock / Want you wrapped around me like a wrist watch / Oh, so hard walking out / Got me stuck like crazy glue, ooh.”
However, it’s doubtful fans watching the video — which was put together by Bieber’s pal and videographer Alfredo Flores — will mind.
Despite the evident no-show of many Beliebers who couldn’t or didn’t make it to the 1,037 theaters showing Believe over Christmas, there will likely always be a die-hard contingent of fans who will idolize Bieber.
The Jon M. Chu-directed Believe opened to a paltry $1.25 million on Christmas Day before taking $4,881,936 at the box office in a week run, according to Box Office Mojo.
In comparison, Bieber’s first feature, Never Say Never, opened in almost three times as many theaters to $29.5 million, eventually banking $73 million domestic and close to $100 million worldwide. It remains the highest grossing concert-movie in the US.
Despite what must be a disappointment in the poor turn-out for Believe the singer appears to be putting it all behind him. After urging fans to see the film, he tweeted, “Going to be a great 2014.”
In other Bieber news, the brand-new puppy owner has been enjoying his Christmas break in his native Canada with his family, uploading one picture of himself by a snowmobile.
The singer was also spotted at the Blue Mountain ski-resort with friends and at a Toronto Maple Leafs game over the weekend.
After tweeting mixed messages that he was retiring on Christmas Eve, that statement was later denied by the star’s management.
“I’m going to take my time [next year] to really find my sound as an adult,” Bieber told USA TODAY via email last month. “That takes time and patience, and I’m grateful I have the ability to step back and focus on my creativity.”
