1. TRACK NAME: Boyfriend
SOUND/VERDICT: This one has garnered the Justin Timberlake comparisons in terms of the sound and Bieber’s falsetto singing (he reckons he actually sounds nothing like JT though). It’s a super hot bassy R&B number that was created with Cooler-Than-Me crooner Mike Posner. It positively oozes swagger and has some whisper/rapping bits that we adore. But hey, you knew that already because it’s his single that’s out in the UK at the moment.
LYRICS: ”If I was your boyfriend, never let you go / Keep you on my arm girl, you’d never be alone / I can be a gentleman, anything you want / If I was your boyfriend, I’d never let you go”

2. TRACK NAME: Die In Your Arms
JUSTIN SAID: “This was created with Rodney Jerkins (a guy who’s famed for making uber-brilliant R&B tunes with the likes of Mariah Carey, Boyz II Men, Michael Jackson and Destiny’s Child) and is old-school and new-school at the same time.”
SOUND/VERDICT: It’s a mid/up-tempo R&B track with slight swing/pop vibes. It contains piano lines that are easy on the ear and parts that make you want to clap your hands and snap yo’ fingers.
LYRICS: ”I could just die in your arms / every time you touch me it just feels so right… so baby baby baby please don’t stop girl…”

3. TRACK NAME: All Around the World
JUSTIN SAID: “Just play it!”
SOUND/VERDICT: The intro built up into an electronic club-tastic dancefloor-filler instrumental with a speaker-bumping bassline so grand and heavy it reaches a kind of Swedish-House-Mafia-level. Ludacris returns as a featured rapper.
LYRICS: ”You’re beautiful, you should know it… You’re crazy girl, you should know it… Baby what are you doing, where you at… DJ bring that back / All around the world, I want to be loved.”

4. TRACK NAME: Believe
JUSTIN SAID: ”This is a track I wrote for my fans and is about how they inspired me. Listen to the words… It means a lot. I wrote it on my birthday – it was midnight in the studio and Scooter [his manager] wanted to sing happy birthday to me but I was like ‘no, let me finish this song!’”
SOUND/VERDICT: Bordering into power-ballad territory, the album title track is very emotional lyrically and is accompanied by an epic piano line and even a gospel choir towards the end. We reckon it’ll definitely become a favourite of die-hard Beliebers.
LYRICS: ”There were nights when I doubted myself but you kept my heart from falling… Look at us now… Where would I be if you didn’t believe.”

5. TRACK NAME: Be Alright
JUSTIN SAID: He wrote this song on a plane, recorded it when he landed in Indonesia and filmed a little accompanying video on a beach in Bali.
SOUND/VERDICT: Changing up the pace completely, this track is just Justin and a guitar – chilled out, acoustic and minimal with a slightly deeper vocal.
LYRICS: ”All alone in my room, waiting for your call… For you I’d walk a thousand miles… Through the long nights and bright lights… Don’t you worry ‘cause everything’s gonna be alri-i-ight.”

6. TRACK NAME: Right Here
JUSTIN SAID: ”It’s not finished but it sounds good”. The final version will have Drake on it. It’s produced by Hit-Boy (who produced In Paris by Kanye/Jay-Z).
SOUND/VERDICT: Justin sounded pretty Drake-like himself on this Drake-like track that funnily enough is gonna feature Drake. We only got to hear the first verse but it’s a swaggerific slice of ballsy hip-hop-swaying R&B.

7. TRACK NAME: Thought Of You
JUSTIN SAID: It’s one of his favourite tracks on the album.
SOUND/VERDICT: Listening to this track we thought ‘this is some punchy, kooky but cool pop, a bit Diplo-like with its marching beat and all’ and lo and behold afterwards we were told it’s a Diplo production – massive win. Definitely reckon it’s a contender for a single release (we’d decided this before Biebs said it was one of his favourites btw).
LYRICS: ”Gonna take some time but I’ll figure it out / Why should we fight the feeling… ‘Cause I’m in love with the / [falsetto] Thought of you.”

8. TRACK NAME: As Long As You Love Me
JUSTIN SAID: ”This is a really good song!” There’s a rapper that’s supposed to feature on it but Justin didn’t want to tell us as it wasn’t confirmed and he wants to keep it a surprise for the fans when it comes out.
SOUND/VERDICT: Big and bassy with a slightly irregular beat, almost dubstep but not quite, the mid-section delves into fast clapping and winds up to big beats again before a sort of rap verse. Makes you want to nod your head to the beat. Made us think this is a Timbaland production.
LYRICS: ”As long as you love me / we could be starving, we could be homeless / we could be broke… I’ll be your platinum, I’ll be your silver, I’ll be your gold.”

Press Q&A

Justin on…

…being a good boyfriend – “It’s about being honest and patient with girls because they give you a headache!”

…rumours about collaborating with The Wanted or One Direction – “There’s nothing at the moment. It’s great that other young people are coming out and being successful.”

…his relationship with Carly Rae Jepsen being similar to Usher – “It’s a lot different – I’m not her mentor. She’s super talented and has been doing [music] for as long as I have. She’s a sweet girl and it’s cool she’s blowing up.”

…the biggest change in his career – “Travelling the world. I’d never been on a plane before all this happened – I have the fans to thank for that. I’ll be going on a world tour soon.”

…his recent Christmas album – “Under the Mistletoe was a transition album to get people used to hearing my new voice. On the new album there are so many different songs that I’m singing.”

…what he believes in – ”[In an English accent] I believe in myself, dreams, that I can do anything. I believe in so many things. I think that word is so powerful and I want to inspire everybody to believe.”
