Album news aside, Justin Bieber recently paid tribute to his senior Lil Wayne by covering his ballad "How to Love". According to his manager Scooter Braun, Bieber "produced and played everything live" in the remix. He dedicated the cover song as a birthday gift for the Young Money rapper who turned 29 last Tuesday, September 27.
Beside singing Weezy's verses, Bieber also adds some rapping, "I just want to take my time/ I just want to my thing/ Maybe we press rewind/ Maybe I buy that ring/ We could grow old together/ Just share our souls together/ Find how to love, kiss and hug/ How to roll together."
