"Pray" (CD single)
What parents need to know
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that "Pray" is another exceptionally positive song by Justin Bieber that's filled with messages about appreciating what you have and trying to improve the situations of those who aren't as lucky. Save for one line about "soldiers dying," there's no swearing or adult content, making it a great choice for tweens.
What's the story?
"PRAY" is the only new single on the album My Worlds Acoustic by teen singing sensation Justin Bieber(the rest of the record includes acoustic versions of his previously released tunes). The song contains very positive messages about appreciating what you have,notingproblems and issues in the world around you, and taking action to improve them. Despite one line about "soldiers dying," the song is a great option for listeners of any age, with lots of encouraging lyrics like "I know there's sunshine behind that rain / I know there's good times behind that pain / Hey can you tell me how I can make a change / I close my eyes and I can see a better day."
Is it any good?
Bieber puts his golden pipes to good use in this positive song, backed by a mellow, piano-based beat. The simple arrangements aren't much different than those in many of his other songs, but the formula once again works well for Bieber in this radio-friendly single.
