Justin Bieber, ‘Christmas Love’ – Song Review
This winter, Beliebers everywhere will make their lists and check them twice, hoping their wish to have Justin Bieber as their very own 'Christmas Love' will come true. The Biebs is feeding into the heartache frenzy with yet another new holiday track from his 'Under the Mistletoe' album, which impacts on Tuesday, Nov. 1.
Like the other pop-infused tracks on the new Christmas record, 'Christmas Love' is warm and cozy -- perfect for a night by the fire with someone special. Unlike his other holiday songs, however, this toe-tappy Bieber tune feels a bit more grassroots, like the kind of carol you'd hear him sing on a street corner holding just a guitar (and perhaps wearing a Santa hat).
"Baby, I will not pout / I will not cry / 'Cause I've your love this Christmas time," Biebs starts in the song, making reference to the classic 'Santa Claus Is Coming to Town.' As the song progresses, the 17-year-old heart-throb continues with the witty lines, adding later, "Tell Santa I'm cool this year / My present is standing right here / Thank God above for my very own Christmas love."
But the Biebs doesn't let his followers enter the holiday season without a good piece of advice: "Every boy and every girl, stay close to the one you love," he sings, further reminding Beliebers that while their one-and-only is happily taken by Selena Gomez, he's still a good place to turn for a little holiday warmth. "Thank God above that you've got someone this year who can fill your heart with cheer."
