Justin Bieber’s ‘Peaches’ Lyrics & Meaning Explained

Justin Bieber’s “Peaches,” which also featured Giveon and Daniel Caesar, was the song of the summer in 2021. The quadruple Grammy-nominated number from the singer’s hit album Justice debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in March 2021.

There’s no denying that Justin’s wife, Hailey Baldwin, was the driving spark behind this song. But is the song more about staying in a romantic relationship than finding love? Let’s look at what the song really means.

Justin Bieber’s Verses

Simply put, “Peaches” is a love song. Bieber, Daniel Caesar, and Giveon each pour their thoughts about a long-term romance into verse. With lines like “There’s nothing like your touch / It’s the way you lift me up / And I’ll be right here with you ’til the end” in the beginning, Bieber establishes the song’s unmistakable air of romance.

Fans speculate that Bieber is alluding to his wedding vows to Baldwin in these lyrics. The couple tied the knot in 2018 when Justin was 24 and Hailey was 21. In 2021, the couple got matching peach tattoos, further confirming that the summer hit was inspired by their relationship.

Giveon and Daniel Caesar’s Verses

Relationships are also a significant theme when Giveon and Caesar come in. Caesar sings, “There’s no time, I wanna make more time / And give you my whole life,” expressing his desire to spend more time with his partner. Giveon, on the other hand, looks forward to a future with his soulmate and sings about his desire to forget the past.

The Chorus

The chorus is where he really gets personal, mixing in all sorts of parallels to his own life. This part of the song seems to trace Bieber’s life up until his relationship with Baldwin, as well as the happiness they found together.

“I get my peaches out in Georgia” most likely refers to how Justin began his musical career in Georgia. The following line, “I get my weed from California,” points to the fact that Justin and Hailey spend a lot of time in Los Angeles for work.

Finally, the line “I took my chick up to the North” nods to the fact that the pair currently resides in Ontario, Canada – Bieber’s country of birth. The final lyric of the chorus, “I get my light right from the source,” talks about the significance of faith (and his wife) in Bieber’s life.
