Song of the Day - Boyfriend - Justin Bieber
If you'd have told me a month ago that I'd have Justin Bieber on my blog not once, but twice in one month, I'd have thought you were crazy. I mean, yeah he's cutesy and talented, but the whole teeny bopper thing just kinda turns me off. (Bad memories of a Debbie Gibson concert at Jones Beach with about 15,000 teenage girls in 1988 might just have something to do with it.)
I gotta say, though, every once in awhile the bubble gum pop just gets to me, and that's just what happened when I posted Carly Rae Jepson's "Call Me Maybe" video a few weeks ago, which features Justin. Since putting that one up, I've actually downloaded it to iTunes and have caught myself listening to several times since then.
Anyway, back to this one. Of course, coverage was all over the place when this was released on Monday and I gave it a quick listen just to see what it was about, and you know what? I kind of liked it! It's definitely a maturer sound than the things I've heard from the kid, and it's pretty good at that.
"Boyfriend" has a nice, snappy track and Justin's vocals are a little R&B in the verses and downright poppy-catchy in the chorus. It's an interesting song that's now got me eager to see what Mr. Bieber's gonna come out with next.
