"Yummy" as written by and Jason Boyd Justin Bieber....
Yeah, you got that yummy, yum
That yummy, yum
That yummy, yummy
Yeah, you got that yummy, yum
That yummy, yum
That yummy, yummy

Say the word, on my way
Yeah babe, yeah babe, yeah babe
Any night, any day
Say the word, on my way
Yeah babe, yeah babe, yeah babe
In the morning or late
Say the word, on my way

Bonafide stallion
You ain't in no stable, no, you stay on the run
Ain't on the side, you're number one
Yeah, every time I come around, you get it done

Fifty-fifty, love the way you split it
Hunnid racks, help me spend it, babe
Light a match, get litty, babe
That jet set, watch the sunset kinda, yeah, yeah
Rollin' eyes back in my head, make my toes curl, yeah, yeah

Yeah, you got that yummy, yum
That yummy, yum
That yummy, yummy
Yeah, you got that yummy, yum
That yummy, yum
That yummy, yummy

Say the word, on my way
Yeah babe, yeah babe, yeah babe
Any night, any day
Say the word, on my way
Yeah babe, yeah babe, yeah babe
In the morning or late
Say the word, on my way

Standing up, keep me on the rise
Lost control of myself, I'm compromised
You're incriminated, no disguise
And you ain't never running low on supplies

Fifty-fifty, love the way you split it
Hunnid racks, help me spend it, babe
Light a match, get litty, babe
That jet set, watch the sunset kinda, yeah, yeah
Rollin' eyes back in my head, make my toes curl, yeah, yeah

Yeah, you got that yummy, yum
That yummy, yum
That yummy, yummy (and you stay flexing on me)
Yeah, you got that yummy, yum
That yummy, yum (yeah)
That yummy, yummy

Say the word, on my way
Yeah babe, yeah babe, yeah babe (yeah babe)
Any night, any day
Say the word, on my way
Yeah babe, yeah babe, yeah babe (yeah babe)
In the morning or late
Say the word, on my way

Hop in the Lambo, I'm on my way
Drew House slippers on with a smile on my face
I'm elated that you are my lady
You got the yum, yum, yum, yum
You got the yum, yum, yum, whoa
Whoa-ooh

Yeah, you got that yummy, yum
That yummy, yum
That yummy, yummy
Yeah, you got that yummy, yum
That yummy, yum
That yummy, yummy

Say the word, on my way
Yeah babe, yeah babe, yeah babe (yeah babe)
Any night, any day
Say the word, on my way
Yeah babe, yeah babe, yeah babe (yeah babe)
In the morning or late
Say the word, on my way

    General CommentWhen I interpret Bieber’s new “Yummy” lyrics, I feel like I’ve honestly developed food poisoning from his spoiled, over-sexualized lyrics. He uses too much overt sex and lasciviousness to hint at his sexual relationship with his model wife, Hailey.

    For example, he proclaims,
    “Any night, any day
    Say the word, on my way
    Yeah babe, yeah babe, yeah babe
    In the mornin' or the late
    Say the word, on my way.”

    As far as the writing, I feel like it’s much too forced in the carnal and sexy attempts here. He really seems to lack creativity in this one as he calls himself as “stallion” of sex, as noted in:
    “Bona fide stallion
    Ain't in no stable, no, you stay on the run
    Ain't on the side, you're number one
    Yeah, every time I come around, you get it done (You get it done).”

    Perhaps this metaphor might appeal Kentucky Derby or equestrian fans, but it’s honestly not crossing the finish line for me aesthetically. Besides, it definitely confuses me, especially when he is allegedly so religiously devout.

    His lyrics in “Yummy” to me are more crummy and indicative of “Sex in the City” vibes than true artistry.

    General CommentEven though the song has received a lot of mixed reviews, this is what I think:
    For an Artiste who has songs topping the charts, Yummy seems a little bit under the belt.

    It seems to be the lyrics actually, not as catchy as I anticipated. It lacks the kind of appeal you expect once you hear the name "Justin Bieber". I prefer to listen to songs over and over so as to get a full grasp of what's actually on.

    As I listened again, I increasingly found the word "yummy" unattractive. The fact that it was repeated in the chorus just makes it worse. If Justin was trying to reach on to the ladies on this one, which I think is the deal, he didn't make a great word pick.

    Even though the song is doing pretty good on the charts, making the second spot in barely 2 weeks of release, it still has not satisfied the Hunger Justin has created in me while on his Solo vacation. This is not the worst song ever heard but it isn't on the A list either. It is a song that will rake massive online listens, but I think it is one that won't be etched on our memories for too long.

    General CommentWhat I love about this song is that it’s an upbeat smooth song that talks about how happy he is with his wife: “I am elated that you are my lady”. This new side to Bieber shows a more mature and happier person who is ready for this new chapter. He seems excited to share his luxurious adventures with his better half, including what seems to be a desire to split everything fifty-fifty.

    It’s a feel-good happy song about devotion. It’s one of those songs that makes me want to get up and dance with the man of my dreams. We can speculate all we want about what the song means or why he wrote certain words but ultimately, it’s a song that is meant to be fun. Its smooth beat gives us a gimps into what he has planned for this next album. Could it be more R&Bieber? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see!

    General CommentYummy has such a light, summery vibe, which I really like. Even if none of us can afford to fly around in a private jet, we can live vicariously through Justin and his wife Hailey, who was definitely his muse for this song. The song paints a picture of an extravagant life, with lyrics like “jet set, watch the sunset” making us all painfully aware of how cool Justin Bieber is. He sings “yeah you got that yummy yum” repeatedly throughout the song, as an ode to his wife Hailey. It’s a cute, fun song about enjoying life and enjoying the person you love, which I think a lot of people can resonate with.

    General CommentIt was a bold choice on Justin’s part to drop a summer anthem in the winter. He’s received some flack for that, and for the song itself, which is understandable. This is his first solo single since 2015, and it has received mixed reviews from his fans. A lot of people on Twitter weren’t happy with the song, saying it wasn’t the right vibe or that he seemed too desperate for people to listen and buy it. The lyrics can get a little repetitive and seem braggy, but a lot of successful pop music has the exact same ingredients.

    Justin’s promo choices may be what hurt the song’s reputation in the end, because he pushed it so heavily on social media. Although I understand some of the criticism for Yummy, I think overall it’s a solid song with a good beat and a melody that gets stuck in your head. One thing that can’t be denied about Yummy; it’s a classic example of a catchy, bubblegum pop song by an artist who’s an expert in the industry. And it’s definitely on my playlist.

    General CommentThe song is a tribute to none other than his newlywed wife, Hailey Bieber. He refers to her as a “bona fide stallion” that he hit up any day, any time.
    In the fourth verse, he sings:
    Fifty-fifty, love the way you split it
    Hundred racks, help me spend it, babe
    Light a match, get litty, babe
    That jet set, watch the sunset kinda, yeah, yeah
    Rollin' eyes back in my head, make my toes curl, yeah, yeah

    The verse clearly gives an in insight into Justin’s sex life and there is no other obvious way he could’ve written it.

    Before the bridge, he sings:

    Hop in the Lambo, I’m on my way
    Drew House slippers on with a smile on my face
    I’m elated that you are my lady
    You got the yum, yum, yum, yum
    You got the yum, yum-yum, woah
    Woah-ooh

    We see that Bieber creates product placement by mentioning his “Drew House” slippers – his own fashion line which features a smiley face logo and the word “Drew”, his middle name, on what is usually comfortable and loose-fitted clothing. After the product placement verse, Bieber returns to describing how essentially “yummy” Hailey Bieber is.

    General CommentGrowing up as a young girl as Justin Bieber took the world by storm with great pop music and that iconic hairstyle will always be a part of my childhood. Watching him grow as my friends and I did, and seeing his musical style change with that growth, has been really cool to see, too. It’s 2020 now, 12 years after the release of his first album, he’s a married man, and his musical style reflects his shift into adulthood.

    Bieber has now begun a new era, with his recent release of the song “Yummy.” While this has been met with mixed reviews, many people have been excited to see Bieber ready to release new music, and I for one am ready to see this next album experiment with a variety of new styles, tones, and genres as we see a new decade of Justin Bieber.
