SINGLE REVIEW: Justin Bieber – What Do You Mean?
THE BIEBS IS BACK! So you can probably sense that I’m pretty excited, right? Well for good reason because Justin Bieber is finally back from his little hiatus and has unleashed a banger that is going to be played in every club and on every radio station for the next couple of months. “What Do You Mean” reveals a mature side to the singer ditching his heavy pop and RNB influences behind and stepping forward with an EDM track that is going to win over a new legion of fans. The song looks at when there is confusion in relationships where you have to clarify what is actually going on. “When you nod your head yes but you wanna say no, what do you mean? When you don’t want me to move but you tell me to go, what do you mean?”. His vocals have continued to improve and mature, while this song isn’t the most natural vocal delivery it shows a growth that is going to impress when he strips it down on the heart wrenching ballads that I’m sure the album will showcase. The beat and strong structure is very similar to his hit single with Skrillex and Diplo “Where Are You Now”, a bit too similar. The only criticism I have with this song is that if he continues to offer tracks like this it will become boring and will sadly impact his live show in a way he won’t want it to. This song does grow on you with each listen and creates so many great vibes that you will to dance and go out to a club once you hear it.
