Justin Bieber vs. One Direction: Who Has the Better “I Would” Song?

by: on | in Music | 80 Comments



Justin Bieber‘s acoustic BELIEVE album is set to hit shelves on January 29, but it actually leaked just a couple of days ago. One song that has people talking is his brand new track, “I Would.” Though it’s a rather upbeat tune, some are pegging this as a break-up song that was written specifically about Selena Gomez.

It’s not officially confirmed, but with lyrics such as “We be living the American dream/and I know it’s never gonna be that easy/but I know that he wanted us to try,” and “Anytime you ask me why I’m smiling/say that I’m satisfied/You got your flaws and so do I,” it’s hard to ignore the possibility.

However, while most people are busy analyzing the lyrics to see if it is in fact a Jelena break-up song, the first thing we thought when we heard about “I Would” is the fact that One Direction has a song with the same name on the band’s Take Me Home album! Both songs are upbeat, but definitely have their differences.

Justin’s “I Would” seems to be more about someone he already had some kind of relationship with, while 1D’s “I Would” is more about unrequited love. “Would he say he’s in L-O-V-E?/Well, if it was me then I would (I would)/Would he hold you when you’re feeling low?/Baby, you should know that I would (I would)”

We love both the Biebs and 1D, but we can’t help comparing the two songs, so we thought we’d get you guys in one the fun too! Which “I Would” song do you like better? JB’s? Or 1D’s? Take a listen to both below, then cast your vote in our poll!
