A new cover of "As Long As You Love Me" by Justin Bieber is so good, it just might give you chills. While most Bieber covers are done by teens, older fans Michael Henry and Justin Robinett use their age to their advantage by adding a '90s hit song to the mix: a single of the same name by the Backstreet Boys.
Henry, who graduated from the Texas Tech University School of Law in May 2012, and Robinett, who graduated from South Plains College the same month with degrees in Sound Technology and Audio Engineering, posted the video clip to Robinett's YouTube account on Friday. Just three days later, the medley has attracted nearly 125,000 views and an outpour of positive comments.
"I get goosebumps every time I listen to you guys, anybody else with me?" one user commented.
The musical duo's efforts haven't gone unnoticed. The day the video was posted, the Backstreet Boys tweeted, "Love the new @justinbieber video. The song name is awesome too :) Found an amazing As Long As You Love Me mashup here: http://youtu.be/OfPtl5saFtw"
Justin Bieber retweeted the comment and agreed, "It is a great mashup."
When the music video for "As Long As You Love Me" came out last week, the Biebs stepped into more adult territory with his gritty performance. The new video is quite a departure from Bieber's formerly clean-cut style: He speeds through Los Angeles, makes out with his on-screen girlfriend in bed, and is brutally beat up.
