Justin Bieber might be in the middle of a media circus, considering his recent spat with a money-hungry paparazzo, but let’s forget about that for two seconds (preferably forever) and move on to the music because that’s what’s really important.
JB released “Die In Your Arms” and it’s COMPLETELY different than I imagined, but in a good way. A really good way. I imagined a gloomy 90s-esque ballad but this tune has a Jackson 5 soulfulness that I didn’t expect, even though Scooter Braun already made the comparison on Twitter. The track has a catchy opening and rhythmic finger snaps, while Bieber croons: “Ooh baby, I know loving you ain’t easy, sure is worth a try.”
His whole album is gearing up to be an essay about why the Biebs is the archetypal boyfriend, leading me to believe the album should be called Etiquette for Gentleman rather than Believe. Of course, this is the second single released from his upcoming LP Believe, out June 19. How does it compare to “Boyfriend?”
