Justin Bieber Stays in R&B Mode With ‘Hold Tight’
Justin Bieber is still keeping his Music Mondays going with the R&B-centered ode 'Hold Tight,' the third installment of the series.
Like the previously released songs, Bieber favors slower R&B rather than the pop prowess he originally made a career on. The Canadian crooner is once again in his feelings on a Monday. His lyrics and vocal performance suggest an intense yearning for his significant other.
Many believe his ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez is the focus of this song, which is a supportable inference with lyrics like, "Don’t let this go to your head / But you’re the best, I’ve ever had."
There's a production switch from the twangy guitars of 'All That Matters' to more nocturnal percussion, but the sobering tone is still the same.
Bieber is planning to release seven more tracks in his Music Monday series.
