Justin Bieber – “Boyfriend”

My hate for Justin Bieber might be about to change. His new single Boyfriend, produced by Mike Posner, was released today and it’s surprisingly good. My iTunes now consists of two Justin Bieber songs, the other being Baby.

The sound of Boyfriend is really similar to a typical Justin Timberlake song except Justin Bieber can’t pull off the talking bits too well. The talking bits are probably the only thing I don’t like about Boyfriend. The production is a bit reminiscent of Timbaland’s work with Justin Timberlake which isn’t a bad thing. Bieber’s got a big hit on his hands because after the first listen, it’s ridiculously catchy and memorable.

If the rest of Justin’s upcoming album is anywhere near as good as Boyfriend, I’ll be interested to hear it, which is something I never thought I’d want to hear.

Boyfriend is out now on the US iTunes.
