What’s happening folks? JC here for Tystenac’s Dragon Fire Music Reviews! This week’s song, as you can see from the title, is “What Do You Mean” by the Biebs himself.
Before we get to that though, let’s start with the rules. I grade based on past music of an artist (even though I shouldn’t), lyrical content, style, and sound of the song. I will review the third highest song on the Billboard Hot 100 chart each week until I start getting requests, whether they be old or new. My grading system will be as follows: “Bruh what was that?,” “Not hittin' my playlist but okay,” “It’ll get a replay,” and the forth and highest rating, “That’s Dragon Fire y’all!” These ratings will be based on my opinion or the opinion of other Tystenac writers, but tweet us @TUTystenac with the hashtag #DFJC to tell us your thoughts on the song. You can also tweet suggestions for the next review.
Now for the actual review.
When going into this song, I was ready to tear it to shreds. Justin Bieber at number three after everything he has done and the crap songs he has produced over the course of his career. There’s no way.
But honestly, as much as I don’t like the guy for getting girls to fall for him with crappy songs and dancing that makes Carlton Banks look good, this song wasn’t that bad. The pacing of the song was good. Not to heavy or fast like most pop songs today. The beat and tune actually had me tapping my fingers on my laptop as I listened. The lyrics seem to examine what the girl (or guy) in a relationship wants when they act decisive, which I happen to like. There’s no cursing, there’s no mention of sex. This song is actually genuine and covers a good topic. The style is hard for me to roll with, especially from Bieber. Ever since his voice changed, it has been hard for him to pick songs that make his voice sound good, and this barely makes it.
So with the first review drawing to a close, it is time for final thoughts. This song has enough has enough appeal for me to like it and not put in my ear plugs as I usually do for the usual Bieber crap. I say this song is "Not hittin' my playlist but okay." I’m not a big fan of Bieber, but it’s a good song.
Catch you guys next week. Hopefully you guys suggest something so I don’t have to review a song by The Weeknd.
