We may be in the middle of October, but that hasn’t stopped Pop upstart Justin Bieber from getting in the festive mood.
For today a track from his upcoming Christmas album surfaced online, ‘The Christmas Song‘ featuring long time friend and mentor Usher.
Though we’d like to say the standard of Bieber’s vocal came as a pleasant surprise, that would be a lie. It didn’t.
Subtly laced with auto tune in an attempt to give it some ‘bass’ , his delivery was mediocre at best. However, the two part harmony between he and Raymond does make for enjoyable listening as was the beautifully produced guitar solo.
All criticism aside, we commend Justin for branching out of his usual territory to deliver such well loved classics in his own way.
Though he lacks the vocal ability possessed by many of his male contemporaries, if the rest of the album is anything like this release it will be sure to prove his worth as the kind of entertainer who can tackle any genre of music with ease.
