This time, the Bieber slander is tolerated.
I listened to Justin Bieber’s new single all of one time and that’s all I needed to hear to know that he could’ve done much better.
Don’t get me wrong. I’ve been a die-hard Belieber since 2008, but because I love the Biebs so much, I choose to hold him accountable for the trash he just released just like the rest of the Internet. Don’t believe me? #justinbieberisoverparty is trending worldwide on Twitter as I’m typing this.
On January 3, Justin Bieber came back to the music scene with his highly anticipated single, “Yummy.” Since the Purpose album (2015), I’ve desperately waited and waited for Bieber to release some more music so he could save the industry, only to be disappointed by this rushed and overly repetitive piece of mediocrity.
“Yeah, you got that yummy-yum
That yummy-yum, that yummy-yummy
Yeah, you got that yummy-yum
That yummy-yum, that yummy-yummy”
Bieber is way too talented, too old, and too creative to even make something like “Yummy.” The single would’ve been cute if it was summer, and all of his fans were 13-year-old die-hard fans, but he failed to remember that his fan base grew up with him. We didn’t need this song. This is not what we wanted.
I should hope that this is just a joke or a teaser and that he has much better music to be released on his highly anticipated album.
The song is so horrible and it shows. Bieber is practically begging his fans to use a VPN when streaming his song and purchasing the single more than once so that he can get the No.1 spot. Currently, Bieber’s lead single from his new, upcoming album falls in second place behind Roddy Rich’s “The Box.”
I would say stream “Yummy” to get Justin to the number one spot on the Billboard Hits, but that will be a hard pass.
Go stream Roddy Rich’s “The Box” instead. At least he put effort into his songs.
