The duet of the century day is here, sort of. A preview of Justin Bieber and Carly Rae Jepsen's "Beautiful" hit the web earlier this week, and now fans are noticing some curious echoes of another teen hit: One Direction's "What Makes You Beautiful."

Jepsen's upcoming album, Kiss is among the more anticipated releases headed to the market. A leaked preview revealed snippets that ranged from "Call Me Maybe"-like jingles to songs that recalled Katy Perry. There is at least one dance-ready tune as well.

"Beautiful" sounds like a Jason Mraz and Dashboard Confessional mash-up. Let's examine the lyrics. Here are Carly and Justin:

What makes you so beautiful is that you don't know how beautiful you are to me.

You're not trying to be perfect, nobody's perfect, but you are to me.

You try to take my breath away feel the words that I don't say.

And here, the One Direction boys:

You don't know you're beautiful,

If only you saw what I can see,

You'll understand why I want you so desperately,

Right now I'm looking at you and I can't believe,

You don't know,

Oh oh,

You don't know you're beautiful,

Oh oh,

That's what makes you beautiful
