Justin Bieber is a total dickhead and everyone knows it, but there’s another hard truth we’ve all had to confront lately: he makes really, really good music. From “Where Are U Now” to “What Do You Mean”, the Biebs has been killing it with catchy pop music, and now he’s gone and done it again with his new song, “Sorry”, and I don’t even know who I am anymore. I’m obsessed (with this song, NOT him).
The video is a bit of a hot mess and I’m assuming it’s not the real thing — the whole “white girls dancing in ways popularized by black girls even though there are no black girls in this video (though there are a few ethnically ambiguous girls, don’t worry)” thing has been done to death, but whatever. Ignoring all that, the choreography is pretty good and the song is REALLY good. That’s in large part due to Skrillex and Blood Diamonds, two producers/musicians who know EDM and apparently dance hall.
I can’t believe how much I’m looking forward to Justin’s album next month. I should be ashamed, and I kind of am, but I’m mostly just really excited.
