    Larnell who LJ affectionately calls Uncle Larnell Lewis is one of Justin's favorite drummers. It was amazing to see his performance live at the recording. LJ loves this song (as you can clearly tell) and plays along with Larnell trying his best to keep up! #babyboydrummer #5yrsold

    Justin renamed this song Corvette because he loves corvettes ????????‍♂️ So that's what he's singing in the beginning. This video is 3 parts adorable and 3 parts insane!
