Acquiring a lot of success at a very young age can take a toll on your mental health, as we’ve seen with many child stars. It looks like Justin Bieber is having his day as he struggles to make a successful return.
Bieber released his new song “Yummy” on Friday and admitted to his fans that he’s “desperate for that No. 1.” In a deleted post, the singer instructed fans to create a playlist with “Yummy” on repeat, and received tons of backlash for it.
Roddy Ricch’s Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial cut “The Box” is climbing Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, so it didn’t hurt him to give JB an extra push. “stream yummy by justin bieber,” the Compton rapper tweeted with the strong arm emoji.
It’s unclear what prompted Ricch’s co-sign but real n*ggas do real things.

Justin Bieber’s “Yummy” hasn’t even debuted on the charts yet. Maybe he should try coming up with an engaging social media challenge instead of asking his fans to transform into bots.
