About a month ago, Justin Bieber mentioned in an interview with 102.7 KIISFM that his hit single "Where Are Ü Now" with Skrillex and Diplo’s side project Jack Ü wasn’t always planned to be a collaboration. The song began as a simple piano and vocal ballad with Bieber’s heartfelt singing as the hero.

"The song was actually just me and a piano, and then skrillex came in and did his stuff, him and diplo came in and messed up the beat," Bieber joked.

Now, fans have the rare opportunity to hear Bieber's song in its original, pop form. Poo Bear, one of the producer’s on the track, recently premiered the original version of "Where Are Ü Now" on Dash Radio.

“This was the version that was cut before Diplo and Skrillex actually got a hold of it and put that incredible sound on it. If I’m not mistaken, this version will go on his album,” Poo Bear said.
