In a good way.


Justin Bieber is a smooth talker on brooding b-side “Long Way Home.”

Singing with an islander twang in his voice, Bieber shows us he’s capable of more than whiny heartbreak songs in “Long Way Home.” The Biebs references Poo Bear in the song, so it’s safe to say the American songwriter/producer crafted the lowkey track (Bieber stated in the past PB is one of the greatest songwriters of all time). The two collaborated on most of the Purpose tracks (“Where Are Ü Now,” “What Do You Mean?,” “Mark My Words,” “Company,” “No Pressure,” “Life Is Worth Living,” “Children” and “Purpose”).

In “Long Way Home,” Bieber’s autontuned voice drifts along to a haunting beat and dreary background vocals. Giving me T-Pain vibes.

“I just want to know if you here / And every time I’m with you, girl I wanna kiss you,” Bieber sings. “Have a feelin’, like there / And I just, wanna go down, wanna go down.”
