Yuna covers Justin Bieber's 'What Do You Mean'

As expected, the Malaysian singer's rendition of the poppy track is mellow and beautiful

Yuna recorded a cover of Justin Bieber's What Do You Mean and it has us feeling all kinds of warm and fuzzy. Where Justin's song is upbeat, Yuna's version is stripped down, with a hint of sadness.

"Couldn't sleep," she wrote in the caption of her recording on SoundCloud. "Messed around with my keyboard and recorded this quietly trying not to wake the neighbors up." We wouldn't mind being her neighbour if she keeps giving wonderful spins to mainstream music.

The former ELLE cover girl also covered Drake's Hotline Bling – again, the track is stripped down, a little echoey, and adds to what is turning into the perfect soundtrack for night owls. Now we're even more excited about that duet Yuna and Usher are working on.
