What’s the likelihood Justin Bieber’s upcoming single “Recovery” will be an uptempo?
Yesterday the 19-year-old revealed the fourth single in his 10-week Music Mondays series (Young Money rapper Tyga’s “Wait For A Minute” is technically a feature), along with aptly medical purple and white artwork.
So far the Canadian’s, cathartic R&B Journals have delivered lush anguish in “Heartbreaker,” lean longing in “All That Matters,” and balls-out explicitness in “Hold Tight.” All three have mostly been interpreted through a Selena Gomez-lens after Bieber’s admission that “Heartbreaker” referred to one of his own breakups.
“[It’s] A song for people going through a heartbreak—like I was when I wrote it. It means so much to me to be able to share what I was, and still am going through, with my fans. I’m very proud of this song and I hope it gives my fans some insight into my heart,” he wrote.
Justin’s explanations for “Hold Tight” changed three times, with the first talking about “the one you can’t shake… You just want to hold on as tight as you can (sic),” to the last which said his Journals were bringing fans into his “most intimate moments.”
