Fifteen-year-old Canadian Justin Bieber is arguably well on his way to being the biggest teen pop sensation since the Jonas Brothers, and the title isn’t totally undeserved. Every song in My World, a compilation of Bieber’s eight singles, is pleasant enough to listen to. Bieber has a good voice and the age-appropriate material he’s been given has a nice pop vibe.
The problem with Justin Bieber is that he offers nothing new. Other than his young age and success story (his YouTube videos prompted a bidding war between Usher and Justin Timberlake), he’s unremarkable in the sea of pop artists recording today. His songs, while not bad, are forgettable and silly. Justin Bieber desperately needs to establish a unique personality and style if he wants his preteen fans to remember him when he’s a grown man and not a cute kid anymore.
Give these tracks a listen: “One Time,” “Bigger”
