Ok, so I’m in the car and listening to the radio and that Drake song comes on, Hotline Bling. And I don’t normally dig Drake’s music so much, but I have to say, I’m liking this one. Maybe it’s the bossa nova organ in the background, or his weird Jamaican kind of accent, but this one I dig.
But that’s not the big surprise. I love bossa nova. No, the big surprise comes on the radio next.
The next song is a simple little ditty, male singer. Catchy. I like it. A lot. It seems familiar, but I can’t place it, because I don’t really listen to Justin Bieber.
Say what? Justin Bieber?
Yeah, that’s right. I found myself liking a Bieber song. Love Yourself. Honestly, it’s good.
Now I did read a headline somewhere that said Bieber’s new album has hit a deeper audience than his earlier work, especially among, ahem, older men. Any by that I presume they mean guys over 22. So it’s not like I’m alone in becoming a belieber late out of the gate. But still.
So hell. Now I have to go an listen to a bunch of Drake and Bieber to see if there’s more I like there.
Is it just one song, or have I caught the fever?
