Is it possible for Sean Kingston to churn out a song without the word shorty in it? If so, “Eenie Meenie”—the Jamaican singer’s new duet with French fry Justin Bieber, which contains the poetic refrain “shorty is an eenie, meenie, miney, moe lover”—isn’t going to prove it. The counting rhyme jam premiered this morning on Ryan Seacrest’s KIIS-FM Los Angeles morning show and is slated to appear on Bieber’s My World 2.0 as well as Kingston’s upcoming third album.
After the jump: hear “Eenie Meenie” and watch Bieber bossing Sean Kingston around in the studio for not getting his “shorties” right—the jerk.
Here’s “Eenie Meenie”:
That loud thud you just heard? Oh, that was simply Shakespeare slamming into the side of his coffin. Below is footage of Sean and Justin in the studio together working on another song:
Man, who knew the Bieb was such a ball-busting perfectionist. Granted, getting the timbre of “shorty” and “roll” just right is serious stuff—when you’re 16.
Then again, Kingston pretty much hammered the last nail in the new Sugababes new album with that godawful song “Miss Everything.” Slap him around some more, Justin!
