Justin Bieber – Purpose (Album Review)

Justin Bieber - Purpose (Official Album Cover).png
Justin Bieber had one goal in mind when he created this album called ‘Purpose’, and that was to seek redemption for all the stupid s–t he was doing since his last album. As a result, Justin made a collection of songs that asked for the listeners forgiveness. I’m OK with this, because sometimes the best music is the ones that come from a emotional place.

TOP 5


 5. ALL IN IT (4.5/5)

Another feel good song for the Biebs! It sounds a lot like a song from the late 90’s/early 2000’s which is refreshing. The song is sappy, but in an inspirational way…..Sorta like a black pastor!

4. NO PRESSURE (4.7/5)

Is that you Big Sean? Didn’t your boy Biebs sleep with your girl? Not that I saw them in the bed together, but the way Biebs was sniffing her ear at that concert, he at least facebook poked her!

This song sounds a bit like Wale’s ‘Contemplate’, and J. Coles ‘Never Told’; it’s like a merry go round type beat. I know that comparison makes no sense, but it makes sense in my head damnit!

Putting no pressure on people you care about is the best sign of generosity, especially when you’re at Chipotle… You put pressure on them, and one side of your burrito is gonna have nothing but rice, and the other side is gonna have nothing but meat.

3. HIT THE GROUND (4.7/5)

This is a nice little vegan sounding song from the Biebs! It makes you feel good, and also makes you want to get acquainted with some hippie white girls at the weird white people club you decided to attend in the nowhereville of your town.

Aren’t you glad that this type of music is in the forefront? It’s high in quality, and there is several different elements to it.

2. WHERE ARE YOU NOW (5/5)

This song sounds like several other songs on this album, however, it has a little more umph to it, as Justin is allowed to play second fiddle to the instrumental (This means primarily adlib) Since this is the case, I would’ve loved Puff Daddy on this song instead of Justin! (I’m showing significant sarcasm)

I love the beat! There is just so much energy to it! It”s beautiful!

1. SORRY (5/5)

Doesn’t this sound like a Nigerian song to you? Like some P-Square or Wizkid? Maybe that’s why I love it so much. It almost feels like he’s saying Sorry on an island somewhere while drinking palm oil.

Doesn’t the songs on this album read like a big ass misunderstanding? First it’s “What do you mean?”, then it’s “Where are you now?”, and now it’s “Sorry”. Do like I do Justin, If there is any type of misunderstanding between you and your girl, tell her you’re going to the car real quick and don’t come back for two hours! When you come back, change the subject completely!


OVERALL RATING (8.6/10)

Overall, the album is pretty good! My only beef (well not beef, lets say gripe) with this album is that many of the songs sound too sappy for my liking! Though heartbreak does make for good music, too much of it could kind of be monotonous.

The techno/up tempo tracks are the lanes Justin Bieber should continue to take!
