Victoria’s Secret Angels Elsa Hosk, Martha Hunt, Stella Maxwell, Sara Sampaio, Romee Strijd and Jasmine Tookes star in Justin Bieber’s newest music video for “2U.” The VS models lip sync, pose and dance around to the singer’s latest single with David Guetta in the visuals.
Bieber dropped hints about the video after he tweeted the models’ names with no context. Soon after, the Angels started sharing clips on Instagram, teasing the video in full. Now that it’s finally here, it turns out the models are the only stars of video; Bieber doesn’t even appear in it at all.
While the theme of models lip syncing makes it seem like Bieber is trying to recreate George Michael’s iconic “Freedom! ’90” video, that’s probably not the case. Lip sync videos are somewhat of a tradition for Victoria’s Secret Angels. VS stars like Adriana Lima, Lais Ribeiro, Alessandra Ambrosio and Josphine Skriver have appeared in previous videos, where they’ve sung along to “24K Magic,” “Can’t Stop the Feeling” and “Shake It Off.” This new Bieber tune is a fitting addition their repertoire.
