Why we think you'll like it
Like Justin Timberlake before him, former teen star Justin Bieber is transitioning into manhood with the surgical aid of producers drawn from pop’s more nocturnal and urban realms. Nearly three years in the making, Purpose fully repositions the troubled child star as a breathy R&B loverman, his edge whetted further since Journals, his previous R&B-flavoured compilation offering (2013). One ear is cocked hard to the sophisticated confessionals of fellow Canadians Drake and the Weeknd, the other to the dancefloor.
It sounds just great, this late-night, soul-searching session in Bieber’s boudoir. If only the man himself were worth our ear time. What Do You Mean? is a song about a young guy’s huffy bewilderment at receiving mixed messages. And yet, Bieber mixes his own. From Sorry on in, Purpose sets out its stall as a giant apology – to his ex, Selena Gomez, and to his public, for various well-documented misdemeanours. Emotional intelligence is doled out by the ladleful. The title track thanks a lover for giving Bieber purpose.
