Review: Anna McCarthy
The highly anticipated comeback of the Biebs welcomes Purpose, his first studio album since 2012.
The album presents a variety of catchy hooks and funky beats, thanks to collection of producers who worked with the 21 year old Canadian, varying from Skrillex to Ed Sheeran, to executive producers such as Kanye West and music legend Rick Rubin. Justin Bieber has grown up, and the album projects both musical diversity and songs inspired by his own personal experiences.
While the singer writes of his intimate realisations he had discovered whilst growing up – see Life Is Worth Living for further details – there is of course a cluster of post-Selena songs, with lyrics shifting from the romance of Trust (and we both adore one another/you’re a dream come true) to the slightly less charming and more sensual No Sense, a track that presents a particular mature JB with the lyric (all I want to do is you/I mean that so literally). From the R&B jams of The Feeling (featuring the Alternative Pop Princess Halsey) and groovy rhythm of Company, to EDM bangers like Children (choon and a half) and hit single Sorry, Bieber has finally presented an album that show his artistic ability that both beliebers and haters can finally get on board with.
