As Justin Bieber gears up to release his new album Believe, he’s building the hype by dropping tracks left, right and center. We’ve already heard songs like Boyfriend and All Around The World, among others, and today he’s released two more tracks featuring rap stars Nicki Minaj and Drake.
The first one, Right Now, features Drake and it’s clear that the Canadian rapper’s influence is all over this one. It most definitely sounds like something from Drizzy’s workshop, with that slow beat and down tempo feel. I’m not a fan of it, at all. It’s boring to listen to and doesn’t sound at all like a Justin Bieber song.
The next track, Beauty and a Beat, is a bit better. It’s more upbeat and Nicki Minaj comes in with a solid verse. I can see it finding more success on airwaves than Right Now and it will also appeal more to Justin’s fans.
As I’ve mentioned before, I’m not exactly a fan of Justin Bieber but I do find his musical career rather interesting. He’s definitely trying to create a new image for himself with this upcoming album and these two new songs only serve to re-enforce that fact.
Be sure to pick up Believe on June 19th.
