Actor Morgan Freeman recently put his legendary voice to good use: by dramatically reading the lyrics to the Justin Bieber hit, “Love Yourself.”

Vanity Fair uploaded a video of Freeman’s reading earlier in the week, and it has already garnered more than 1 million views.

The smooth Freeman hardly broke character as he read lyrics such as, “My momma (don’t) like you, and she likes everyone.”

“I would literally love a YouTube channel of Morgan Freeman doing this with a bunch of different songs,” wrote one YouTube commenter.

Wrote another, “Morgan Freeman should read poetry as a full time job.”

And so on.

“Love Yourself” is currently No. 1 on the American Top 40 hits list. Bieber also has two other hits on the charts: “Sorry” (No. 5) and “What Do You Mean?” (No. 35).
