What's the story?
The latest single off the hit album My World 2.0, "SOMEBODY TO LOVE" finds tween heartthrob Justin Bieber crooning once again about his ideal girl. As always, the Bieb keeps it very clean, with sweet, innocent lyrics that describe his desire to give everything he has to the girl of his dreams. For example, "For you I'd be runnin' a thousand miles just to get to where you are ... / I don’t need a whole lot but for you I'd rather give you the world / I just need somebody to love."
Is it any good?
"Somebody to Love" is among the better tunes on My World 2.0, doing a good job of showcasing Bieber's powerful pipes. Though the hook isn't much different than those on lots of previous Bieber songs, the prominent vocal performance will undoubtedly make this single another chart-topper for the singer.
