‘Peaches,’ Justin Bieber feat. Daniel Caesar and Giveon

We got an early taste of “Peaches” last week when Justin Bieber sang it for NPR’s Tiny Desk series just days ahead of the release of Justice, his sixth studio album. While that Tiny Desk performance had Bieber singing solo, accompanying himself on keys and clad in a baggy T-shirt surely pulled from the bottom of his laundry bin, the version on the album and video is a polished amalgam of crisp production, well-cast collaborators and on-point fashion — Giveon’s powder-blue moto jacket is a huge fit — that’s destined for song-of-the-summer status.
