Single of the Day: Justin Bieber – Love Yourself

By - 2 years ago in Single of The Day

Gotta love Justin Bieber and his new album “Purpose”. Lebih-lebih dengan kehadiran ‘Love Yourself’ yang sudah menjadi lagu no.1 ketiga Justin Bieber dari album tersebut. Ini prestasi yang luar biasa, mengingat sebelumnya tak satupun lagu Bieber berhasil menjadi juara di chart Inggirs dan Amerika Serikat. Termasuk megahit ‘Baby’ yang ternyata hanya sanggup menembus ke Top 3 di UK dan Top 5 di US.

Apa yang membuat “Purpose” sedemikian istimewa adalah persiapannya yang enggak main-main. Bieber dibackup dengan para penulis lagu dan produser yang namanya tengah berkibar di blantika musik pop dunia saat ini. Tapi tak berhenti sampai disana saja, karena para produser itu seperti bertindak out of the box untuk album Bieber yang satu ini. Contoh pertama adalah Skrillex yang dengan tekun memintai keunikan dalam ‘Sorry’, sampai-sampai ia juga memainkan gitar khusus untuk Bieber dalam pengakustikan lagu tersebut. Contoh selanjutnya adalah Benny Blanco, yang diseret ke ranah akustik untuk ‘Love Yourself’. Ini merupakan playing field-nya Ed Sheeran, co-writer lagu bersama Bieber dan Benny.

Out of the box sih out of the box ya. Tapi bukan berarti main-main sehingga poin tinggi di urusan eksperimental dan poin jeblok di hasil. Single ini, dalam kesan kesederhanaan di musiknya, justru kaya akan feel. Liriknya dalam, yang kalau kata Bieber sendiri bisa ngena ke siapa aja. Di samping itu, kompleksitas terjalin saat terompet mulai unjuk gigi di bagian bridge. Jadi jangan terkecoh dengan keluguan alunan musik yang kita dengar, karena sejatinya yang terjadi lebih dari sekedar itu.

It’s a ballad that everyone can enjoy. Job welldone, sir! And you deserve massive airplay for this one!


Lyrics:
All the times that you rain on my parade
And all the clubs you get in using my name
You think you broke my heart
Ohhh girl for goodness sake
You think I’m crying
Oh my ohhh, well I ain’t!

And I didn’t wanna write a song
‘Cause I didn’t want anyone thinking I still care, I don’t
But, you still hit my phone up
And baby I be moving on

And I think you should be somethin’ I don’t wanna hold back
Maybe you should know that
My mama don’t like you and she like’s everyone
And I never like to admit that I was wrong
And I’ve been so caught up in my job
Didn’t see what’s going on
But now I know
I’m better sleeping on my own

‘Cause if you like the way you look that much
Ohhhh baby you should go and love yourself
And if you think that I’m still holdin’ on to somethin’
You should go and love yourself

When you told me that you hated my friends
The only problem was with you and not them
And every time you told me my opinion was wrong
And tried to make me forget where I came from

And I didn’t wanna write a song
Cause I didn’t want anyone thinking I still care, I don’t
But, you still hit my phone up
And baby I be moving on
And I think you should be somethin’ I don’t wanna hold back
Maybe you should know that
My mama don’t like you and she like’s everyone
And I never like to admit that I was wrong
And I’ve been so caught up in my job, didn’t see what’s going on
And now I know, I’m better sleeping on my own

‘Cause if you like the way you look that much
Oh baby you should go and love yourself
And if you think that I’m still holdin’ on to somethin’
You should go and love yourself

For all the times that you made me feel small
I fell in love now I fear nothin’ at all
I never felt so low when I was vulnerable
Was I a fool to let you break down my walls?

‘Cause if you like the way you look that much
Ohhhh baby you should go and love yourself
And if you think that I’m still holdin’ on to somethin’
You should go and love yourself

‘Cause if you like the way you look that much
Ohhhh baby you should go and love yourself
And if you think that I’m still holdin’ on to somethin’
You should go and love yourself

Tinggal di Dunia Pop dan Dunia Disney!
