Justin Bieber’s “Heartbreaker”: Hear The New Slow Jam

Justin Bieber followed through on his #MusicMondays promise, releasing new song “Heartbreaker” promptly at midnight this morning (October 7). And it’s straight-up baby-makin’ music, Bieber cooing over a slow beat built on an aqueous guitar line and simple snare cracks. It’s something that would sound perfect sandwiched between offerings from Babyface and Jodeci in the mid-90s — Bieber even resuscitates that era’s lost art of the spoken word interlude.

The coda, though, is all 2013, with the song warping into a hazy, bass-heavy lurch as Bieber’s falsetto fades out slathered in effects. The song was produced by Maejor Ali, T-Minus, and Chef Tone. Hear it below.

And after dropping the new single, Bieber promised “each week the songs get better.”

“Heartbreaker” is available now on iTunes.

    Damn, hate to say it but…this is what JT’s newest album should have sounded like…I really like it.

      Hate to say it, but during the last minute of the song, I was thinking the same thing re: Timberlake.

    Don’t like the song. Well… Only nine weeks to go…
