Justin Bieber Gets Emotional On His Uplifting New Track “Pray”

Blossoming author and aspiring rapper (oh, and worldwide pop phenomenon) is readying the release of his contribution to Black Friday, his new album My Worlds Acoustic (out November 26). Although the 10-track LP is mostly made up of acoustic tracks from Justin’s My World and My World 2.0, we get a brand new, inspirational tune, “Pray”. Hey, this is a holiday release after all, and what are the holidays for than a perfect time to record a moving, poignant ballad about how there’s suffering in the world? Prepare for your heartstrings to be tugged by listening to “Pray” below.

Justin Bieber — “Pray”

Justin Bieber – Pray by smitty-kz

“I just can’t sleep tonight, knowing that things ain’t right,” sings a heartfelt Bieber on the inspirational track. “It’s in the papers, it’s on the TV, it’s everywhere that I go / Children are crying, soldiers are dying, some people don’t have a home.”

Doesn’t that just bring a salty tear to your ducts, folks? And is it just us, or is our lil Bieb’s voice is getting deeper? By this time next week he should sound like Rick Ross.

Justin Bieber tells MTV that he made an acoustic album to prove to all his haters that he can really sing.”Kind of stripping [my songs] down and having it kind of really mellow and being able to hear my voice is why I wanted to do it.”

    Erm… this isn’t “acoustic.” It’s just a slightly less busy, yet still fully produced studio track. Just because it doesn’t include the full-on bells & whistles of his other tracks doesn’t make it “stripped down” and certainly doesn’t make it “acoustic.” I mean… the song starts out with vocal effects. lol.

    The song itself is alright. Not particularly memorable for me and, while it’s great that Idolator think it’s heart-tugging or tear-inducing, I’m not really getting that, personally. I’m not harshing on the concept of inspirational songs–I love me some inspirational songs. But this just isn’t doing anything for me.

    The other songs on the album are all acoustic just him and guitar. But if u read, it said this one song isnt acoustic, they just threw it in there. they never said this particular song was acustic…I love the song tho lol

    Actually, it says that the album is mostly made up of acoustic tracks from his previous two albums, but also includes “Pray.” It doesn’t say that “Pray” isn’t acoustic, just that “Pray” isn’t on My World or My World 2. The album is called “My Worlds Acoustic,” so it seems a little silly to throw in a non-acoustic track. Throwing in a new track… I get that… so long as it’s acoustic, given that’s the entire purpose of the album. But we’ll have to see how non-acoustic the rest of the tracks are, and whether his producer thinks “acoustic” just means slower with less beats.

      My brain hurts reading that, lol. But yeah – a little odd to throw in a non-acoustic track on an acoustic album, no?

  • LMG

    Acoustic or not, I like it. But do agree with it being on here like this. Perhaps he found this song and liked it so much that he wanted to get it out to everyone and this was the quickest he could do that? OR, he really didn’t know the meaning of acoustic? But no, with a BFF like Usher, he HAS to know so maybe it is the first one?
