I liked "Boyfriend" fine, thought it was a smart song and a definite move forward from My World. even if it was no "Eenie Meanie". I've seen him on stage three times since 2009 and I loved him every single time.
But let's be honest: 2.0? Acoustic? A Christmas album which got trounced by Michael Buble???
There is much riding on the new one, anything but complete chart domination will be viewed as a major disaster and so far? "Boyfriend"? Not world domination.
So Justin is bringing out the big guns: Kanye, Drake, Diplo, Usher and Timbaland… oh my!!! No Rihanna, but better, Taylor Swift!!! According to the New york daily News, ""It's crazy," Bieber, 18, said Thursday. "I mean I even wrote a song with Taylor Swift, so the whole album ranges differently."
Bieber is 18 going on 30, but that withstanding, he has handled worldwide fame with smarts to spare. Has there been a misstep si far? I haven't noticed it. Not only did he string his first album along for years and years, he also copped a hotter than hell rock star girlfriend. But now he gets to put all his swagger to use before The Wanted eat his lunch.
