Preview Carly Rae Jepsen & Justin Bieber's Duet, "Beautiful"

Well this is... disappointing. Coming from Justin Bieber, the guy behind "Baby" and "Boyfriend," and Carly Rae Jepsen, the girl responsible for The Catchiest Song of All Time ("Call Me Maybe"), one would think their first duet would be a slam dunk. Unfortunately, that's not exactly the case.

In a 90-second preview clip of a song that's claiming to be Jepsen's upcoming duet with Bieber, "Beautiful," we're getting more John Mayer/singer-songwriter vibes than CHART-CLIMBING MEGA HIT vibes. We get that they were trying to do some sort of Colbie Caillat/Jason Mraz thing, but we wanted something more along the lines of Owl City's "Good Time."

Ah well. We're still pumped for Carly Rae's Kiss release on September 18. What about you guys? What do you think of "Beautiful"?
