Valentine’s Day and chocolate. Crushes and Justin Bieber. Justin Bieber and boyfriend. “Boyfriend” and… “Girlfriend” by *NSYNC?
Some things go together. Some things don’t.
We’ll let you decide if these “Boyfriend” mashups work or if they totally stink.
5. What Makes You Beautiful/Boyfriend
First I’ll set your standards low, which is how they should probably be on Valentine’s Day anyway. (Exceeding the low expectations is better than crushing the high ones, am I right?!) This mashup is laughable. The person who mixed them clearly has no sense of rhythm. Also, it’s like they want One Direction to have swag, which, let’s be honest, we all know just isn’t possible.
4. Payphone Boyfriend
Aside from having to place a collect call to this boyfriend, the other disappointing part of this song is that it’s just The Biebs over the “Payphone” track, which, although nice, just isn’t enough for me.
Coming in at number 3 is this mashup based on the version Glee performed, and Glee knows their mashups. While we finally have two different songs tastefully mixed together, this one still seems to be missing something.
2. Boyfriend vs. Whistle
My runner up mixes two catchy songs to create an equally catchy mashup. Flo Rida’s “Whistle” matched with “Boyfriend”? Why yes, they work well.
1. Boyfriend Girlfriend
Finally, my favorite mashup has the best chemistry and seamless transitions. (If you’re wondering where The Biebs comes in it’s at 1:09.) This match just makes sense. The music videos themselves are even similar: babes, cars, popstars. Plus, we get Nelly. I mean really. Match made in heaven? I think so. You’ll thank me for this one.
