Ever since we heard Justin Bieber’s new album, Believe, last week, we’re not ashamed to admit that we haven’t stopped listening. And even with YouTube, iTunes and every other way we listen to music today, there’s still nothing quite like getting your hands on the actual album of an artist you’re really into. The coveted first-song-chosen to play is a pivotal moment in any fan’s life, obviously. So, to celebrate the release of Believe today, we compiled a list of must-listen Believe songs.
Best Club Song– “She Don’t Like The Lights”
With the sound of camera flashes constantly in the background, you can’t help but imagine being chased by the paparazzi while listening to this song. While the beat starts off slow, we can totes picture a large crowd dancing as the song moves on and becomes more intense.
Most Likely to Be About Selena Gomez– “Fall”
It’s no secret that Selena constantly called Justin her best friend before they took their relationship to a more romantic level. So, with lyrics like “let me tell you a story about a girl and a boy. He fell in love with his best friend, when she’s around he feels nothing but joy,” it’s pretty obvious who Justin’s referring to. We can’t even lie– we wish someone (Justin) would sing a song like this to us. Sigh.
Best Song for a Dubstep Competition– “As Long As You Love Me” ft. Big Sean
When we first heard this song, there was no question that dubsteppers across the world will prob be using this one in the future. The heavy bass and drum-based background track enhances the hard-hitting track, not to mention gets stuck in our head like, immediately.
Most Likely to be Featured in a Nicholas Sparks Movie– “Be Alright”
Picture it with us–two love birds frollicking through a field (or perhaps a beach a la Miley & Liam in The Last Song).
Best Doesn’t-Sound-Like-Bieber Song– “Out of Town Girl”
We’re not 100 percent sure who this song sounds like, but we do know that if we weren’t told who was singing, we’d be seriously confused. On that note, however, we’re literally obsessed with whatever this song sounds like. So. Good.
Best Collab– “Beauty and the Beat” ft. Nicki Minaj
It was a given that we’d love any song featuring Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj, and this one does not disappoint. Believe has tons of collabs (all of which we also love), but Nicki is the queen and she deserves this trophy.
Most Likely to be Mistaken for Justin Timberlake– “Maria”
When discussing JB’s new music here at Teen (obv), there was one thing we all agreed on– JB is JT’s clone in this song. We’re not sure if it’s the pop-y beat or the super high falsettos, but something screams “twins.” Not only is “Maria” freakin’ amaze, it’s also a super ouch-worthy track to Mariah Yeater. Yep, we love the song and the dramz.
Best tribute to Old-School Music– “Die In Your Arms”
“DIYA” reminds us of old-school Motown-esque music that our parents would be proud to let us listen to. Maybe it’s the mid-song speaking or the funky piano background that takes us back, but whatever it is, it’s safe to say that we’re glad to go back.
