Thanks to producers Mike Posner and MdL, Justin Bieber has released a new song. ‘Boyfriend’ is first single from the flat-voiced teenager’s upcoming ‘Believe’ album, which will also include contributions from Drake, Timbaland, Diplo and Danja.
Remember when Justin Timberlake basically stole his sound from R&B and Hip-Hop artists in his bid to score a hit? Well, Bieber did something similar with ‘Boyfriend’, minus the ability to sing.
Listen to Bieber’s ‘Boyfriend’ below:
‘Boyfriend’ would have been a much better song if Janet Jackson performed it under the title of ‘Girlfriend’. “Trent, how could you say that?!” Think about: Bieber copied her singing style and the tune is definitely in Jackson’s key.
Now, don’t be confused, ‘Boyfriend’ is a good record but it is obvious that Bieber’s people are simply trying to corner the Urban market by purchasing beats from the best producers on the R&B/Hip-Hop scene. However, just imagine how wonderful it would be if they gave similar treatment to an artist who had more talent.
