Justin Bieber struggled to record his holiday duet with Mariah Carey – because adulthood has robbed him of his high notes, reported contactmusic.com
Justin Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun has revealed Justin’s voice broke just before he hit the studio with Mariah Carey to re-record her festive hit “All I Want For Christmas.”
Listen: All I want for Christmas is you Justin ft. Mariah.
Scooter admits Justin voice’s tone is not as high as it used to be. He tells Billboard.com, “Vocally, his balls have dropped… A year ago that (singing with Carey) would have been no problem.”
And Island Def Jam president Steve Bartels is convinced fans will notice the more adult sound to Bieber’s voice on his new holiday album, Under The Mistletoe, which is released in the U.S. on Tuesday (November 1, 2011).
Steve adds, “The album really shows his growth as a young man, and his voice has just blossomed.”
