Justin Bieber had announced that he would be starting ‘Music Mondays,’ releasing a new song every Monday, in what is expected to be a promotion for his upcoming album. Now the Canadian pop singer made good on his promise, releasing a new song called “Heartbreaker,” which will likely be his first single. According to huffingtonpost.com:
“After teasing his new single ‘Heartbreaker’ months ago, Justin Bieber finally released the track on Sunday night. The 19-year-old singer debuted the song at midnight as a part of the “Music Mondays” series he is putting on to release a new track each week. “Heartbreaker” is expected to serve as the lead single off of Bieber’s upcoming album. He has been referring to the project as his “music journals,” nodding to the personal nature of the songs.”
Although Bieber has been in the news recently more for tattoos and antics, he reminds his fans that he’s a pop singer with his new song that is presumed to be a reference to his ex-girlfriend, Selena Gomez. As reported by billboard.com:
“‘Don’t tell me I’m a heartbreaker/’Cuz girl, my heart’s breaking,’ Bieber sings on the hook, as chirps of ‘heartbreaker, heartbreaker’ fill the empty spaces around the vocal. A simple acoustic lick and snare taps set the scene for what amounts to Bieber’s most direct stab at adult R&B to date, complete with the spoken-word breakdown that one might find on a Boyz II Men song.”
“‘It’s a song for people going through a heartbreak — like I was when I wrote it,’ Bieber wrote of ‘Heartbreaker,’ which alludes to his break-up with Selena Gomez late last year, in the song’s iTunes description, which he then posted on Twitter. ‘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 give my fans some insight into my heart.'”
There’s no official release date on Bieber’s next project, but the ‘Music Mondays’ promo is promised to run for 10 consecutive weeks.
