So I’m feeling kind of conflicted now. I waited with much excitement & expectation for this album to drop today & to proclaim my unabashedly (but really kind of embarrassingly) complete conversion to Bieber fan-dom lol. From the lead single & the other leaked songs that I’ve heard, I thought it was going to be such a great hit that surprised me with his little hints of mature R&B swag. I am sadly a little disappointed 😦
BUT, there are still some songs that I do really enjoy on this album! Favorites = “Catching Feelings,” “Right Here” (this is a GREAT one – featuring Drake! :D), “Die In Your Arms” (really cute song!), & of course the lead single “Boyfriend” (video below, aka NSync’s “Girlfriend” reloaded).
Album available below, I guess I just expected more 😦
But he’s still so cute! And I definitely do still love how his voice is maturing 🙂 Looks like this won’t be enough to compel me to see him live, but maybe on the next album!
However, the Biebs still has potential in my book. There are some previous songs of his (“Never Say Never,” “Pray,” “Somebody to Love,” “All I Want For Christmas Is You (SuperFestive!)” w/Mariah, “U Smile” which I think Gavin DeGraw needs to do a cover of + the acoustic version which is great & I appreciate the slightly deeper vocals!!, etc.) that I really like 🙂
In the meantime, I can just continue to enjoy this premiere performance of “Boyfriend” on The Voice which I LOVED…
I really like his voice & the live version of this song. Until next time Biebs!!
