By now, it’s common knowledge that Billie Eilish has been a Belieber for years. Though once “just” a fan, Billie and Justin Bieber are now both super-stars — not to mention collaborators and friends (Justin even once slid into Billie’s DMs to respond to a message she sent him in 2014).
Still, once a Belieber, always a Belieber — a fact that Billie proved while appearing on James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke earlier this week. While driving with the comedian, Billie joined in on an acapella rendition of The Biebs’s iconic jam “Baby” (including Ludacris’s rap portion), and we have a feeling she probably could nail a cover of Justin’s other songs, too.
Billie also chatted with James about the night she and Justin met at Coachella 2019. “Well, if I could be honest with you, for like all Coachella weekend, I was like, 'Don’t surprise me with Justin Bieber. I can’t take it. I can’t have to do this show, and Justin Bieber is going to be there,’” the “Bad Guy” singer recounted, adding that she noticed Justin while rocking out at Ariana Grande’s concert. “Because I know what Bieber looks like, I know his body language, I know how he stands, I know where he wears his pants, so I look over and just was like—” For emphasis, Billie opened her eyes super-wide, which is probably how I’d look if I’d just spotted Justin, too.
But Justin apparently didn’t say a word to Billie. “And he just stood there,” she described. “He didn’t even come near me. He just stood five feet away from me, just perfectly still…. And he had the face mask so all I could see were his eyes. But they were his eyes.” Naturally, James then interjected “His ocean eyes.” (C’mon, you would have made that joke too.)
In addition to singing her rendition of “Baby,” Billie performed The Beatles’ “I Will,” along with several of her own jams like “All Good Girls Go to Hell” and “8.”
As for her friendship with Justin, the two released their “Bad Guy” remix earlier this summer, proving that they make a pretty good team. Here’s hoping that Billie and Justin collab again in the future — maybe with a remix of “Baby,” since it’s clear Billie knows all the words.
