It has been about 4 months since the first release of Justin Bieber’s debut CD, My World. As he promised, the second part was released and I have to say, it was a bit disappointing. Not because I did not win the big golden ticket trip to the Bahamas (although that might have helped) but the amount of slow love songs are becoming too recurring from this sixteen-year-old boy. Don’t attack me ladies! He broke his own sales record, so it’s not like he is not pleasing his fans. I’m pretty sure all the ladies in the fan mosaic included bought a CD and there are definitely a lot of little pictures making up Bieber’s face!
At about 38 minutes, the 10-track follow up album has a common theme among them. All of them have something to do with love, whether it’s about getting the girl, falling for the girl, lips being the biggest weakness – this subject got repetitive fast. Bieber recruited 3 guests to help him emphasize his point: Ludacris, Jessica Jarrell, and Sean Kingston. Usher also provided some background vocals in “Somebody to Love” as that was discovered by Perez Hilton through his work in the music industry! Perez has wanted to sign Bieber ever since watching him perform on YouTube. As things didn’t work out, Perez still got to ‘make things happen’ as he believes this will be a big hit for Bieber. Even though it was one slow love song after another, Bieber’s vocals were impressive with hitting high notes, singing those ballads, and co-writing each song.
This album may take a while to get used to as there are not a lot of songs that are microphone singing and dancing in underwear worthy. It was a big change from the first album but you can tell that he worked really hard. Fans that love love songs will enjoy and those who were looking for a change throughout the album will be disappointed. I definitely can’t wait for another album release as I am more than ready to hear what else he has to talk about besides love. Am I asking too much from the fellah? Can you do that for me Justin?! Congrats on the second release and good luck to all the people trying to find the tickets! Time to learn all the songs as Bieber is embarking on North American tour this summer!Tweet
