Some Peoplе Come In Your Life For A Reason: #Jedward’s John Grimes Releases Stunning Instagram Exclusive Cover Of Justin Bieber’s ‘Lifetime’

If you’ve listened to John Grimes’ acoustic covers over the years, you may have noticed that he’s covered Justin Bieber’s songs more than any other artist, with him appearing 3 times in the past year alone. We’re certainly not complaining; Justin’s songs fit well lyrically, and sonically they suit John’s vocals perfectly. So tonight, we were very pleased when John uploaded a new cover to the Jepicpics Instagram account, and it was another Bieber song – this time his new single, ‘Lifetime’, from his ‘Justice’ album.

If you’ve been living under a rock then you’ll probably not have noticed that Jedward have been in the news a lot. If it’s not for their music, and their incredible banger of an album, ‘Voice Of A Rebel’, with their 22 self-written and produced songs, it’s for their astute political commentary on social media, and, more recently, the shaving of their trademark quiff hairstyles, in order to raise money for the Irish Cancer Society.

‘A Fortnite To Remember: Is Gaming the New Pop Music?

With the music industry being more fragmented than ever, youth culture has focused on an industry that is arguably more unified, the gaming industry. While 2020 was a year of uncertainty, the 12 months where we saw the coronavirus was also where video gaming became the pop culture phenomenon of all time, even overtaking music. But is this really the case? While only now we’ve seen prominent musicians connecting with their fans on a more personal level via social media, this something that gamers have been doing for a long time on platforms like Twitch. Why is gaming actually the new pop music?

‘Fast Car’: John Grimes Of Jedward Puts His Own Stamp On The Tracy Chapman Classic With Acoustic Guitar Cover

You’ll know the song, even if you don’t know who originally sang it. A fast song about getting away from it all, ‘Fast Car’ was written by Tracy Chapman and released way back in 1988. Since then it’s been covered no fewer than 15 times, by artists such as Birdy, Boyce Avenue, Justin Bieber, Jonas Blue, Sam Smith, Passenger…the list is seemingly endless, with each the track their own flavour. And now it’s John Grimes’s turn, with his acoustic guitar cover, which he’s released as an IGTV exclusive.

John Grimes Shows His Perspective On New Justin Bieber And Shawn Mendes Collab, ‘Monster’ With His Acoustic Guitar Cover

Fame at a young age can have a dramatic effect on a person, a fact to which Justin Bieber, and fellow Canadian and former child star, Shawn Mendes, can certainly attest. The pair last month released their collaborative single, ‘Monster’, in which they recount the roller coaster ride each has been through, the highs and lows of being hot and then not – and what it does to one’s mental health and well-being.

Got A Difficult Person To Buy For? Jedward Have The Christmas Present For You!

Somehow it’s already November, and if you’re like me, you’ve left it late to organise your Christmas presents. It’s been a hard year, and even if you can get out to the shops to buy gifts, the general vibe of 2020 has been one of not feeling up to it, motivated, or having the energy to think of what to get.

Thankfully, Jedward have it all under control! The acknowledged saviours of 2020 with their life affirming tweets, positive music, and random good vibes DMs, have come up with not just one, but TWO fantastic ways to spread the Christmas joy this year, at two different price points, so you can choose how much you want to spend (or if you’re like me, you’ve bought both for yourself!).
