Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Justin Bieber once again talks about relationships in his single "Heartbreaker." In this clean post-breakup track, Bieber asks for a second chance, begging a girl not to be a "heartbreaker." With no iffy language or references to drugs, alcohol, or sex, this track is fine for young tweens and up.
What's the story?
HEARTBREAKER is Justin Bieber's first single from his "Music Mondays" project, wherein he will release a new single every Monday for 10 weeks leading up to a Christmas movie release. The song is a plea for a second chance, with Bieber crooning, "I still believe in love / I still believe in us."
Is it any good?
"Heartbreaker" shows Bieber trying on a smoother, more mature persona following his breakup from Selena Gomez and very public misbehavior. It's a decent track, with a moody, R&B beat, but there's nothing here that's very memorable.
