“If at first you don’t succeed…”
It appears Justin Bieber is still feeling the brunt of being shut-out from the latest list of Grammy nominations. For, the Pop pin-up’s team have commissioned a new acoustic take on his third studio album ‘Believe’.
Aptly christened ‘Believe Acoustic’, the re-tooled set arrives on January 29th.
Peep the tracklist below…

1. Boyfriend (Acoustic Version)
2. As Long As You Love Me (Acoustic Version)
3. Beauty And a Beat (Acoustic Version)

5. Take You (Acoustic Version)
6. Be Alright (Acoustic Version)
7. All Around the World (Acoustic Version)
8. Track 8 (Acoustic Version)
Phenomenons such as Justin aren’t accidental, they are crafted by clever and attentive teams – something Team Bieber clearly are given the swift cooking up of this project.
Yes, it appears bolted on. And, yes, it’s a transparent attempt at forcing a brand of “respect” which continues to elude Justin (despite of all of his success). However, should he actually deliver and not sound like puberty in motion (as he can at times), he could well nab nominations at the Grammy’s after next. Put simply, it’s a smart move.
Tidbit: Since going on sale in June, the original ‘Believe’ has sold 1,141,000 copies in the US.
