VIDEOS: What If These Pop Stars Were Around In The 80s?


Published at 10:22am 20th June 2016.

What if Justin Bieber was around in the 80s?

Would it change the music industry forever?

I guess we will never know, but YouTube account ‘Tronicbox’ has made it possible to hear the synchs sounds of Bieber.

The 22 year old's two hit singles ‘What Do You Mean’ and ‘Love Yourself’ have been transformed into 80s tunes and can arguably now be enjoyed…

‘What Do You Mean It’s 1985?’ has been viewed more than 370 thousand times and people cannot get enough of the sweet ballad, made complete with a saxophone solo and synths sounds.

Both videos show Bieber sporting a mullet hairstyle and you cannot deny that the VHS style takes you back to the good old days.

You will be playing them all day - we sure will be...

If that is not enough to quench your 80s appetite, Tronicbox has also transformed Ariana Grande’s ‘One Last Time’ and Maroons 5’s ‘Sugar’.
