Here’s the Passover-Justin Bieber Mashup You Didn’t Know You Needed

1 minute read

The Maccabeats, the all-male Jewish a cappella group, has released a Passover-themed mashup of Justin Bieber songs from his 2015 album Purpose.

In the parody of “Love Yourself”, the refrain “Oh, baby, you should go and love yourself” becomes “Pharaoh, you should let my people go.” The track “Sorry” is renamed “Story”; “Yeah we crossed the water but on dry ground / So let’s go celebrate Pesach now! / Story!” And “What Do You Mean?” becomes “Why Do We Lean?”, meant to be a rephrasing of one of the four introductory questions presented at a seder.

Formed in 2007 at Yeshiva University, the group got its big break on the Internet in 2010 with a Hanukkah parody of Taio Cruz’s “Dynamite.”

Passover begins the evening of April 22 and ends the evening of April 30.
