Another Monday, another track from Justin Bieber.
For the second week of his “Music Mondays” series, Bieber shows off his sexy side with his new slow jam, “All That Matters.” And like “Heartbreaker” before it, the Biebz wants to prove to the world that he’s not a little boy anymore.
With help from one guitar-driven sample that bides off Kendrick Lamar’s “Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe,” he attempts to win this special lady over with some rather kind words: “From the bottom of my heart, please believe/You’re all that matters to me/Worried about nobody else.” (Listen below.)
Bieber, sounding particularly head over heels in love on this one, keeps things simple. He attempts nothing flashy and just talks to her straight from the heart, or maybe another part of the anatomy, asking, “What’s a king bed without a queen?”
The pop star took to Twitter earlier this morning (October 14) to explain the song’s message. “The lyrics of this song are pretty self explanatory- when you fall in love with someone, that someone can make you feel whole. I feel like anyone who has been in love knows what I mean.”
Adding, “The song conveys that being in love is one of the greatest feelings on earth. Love is all that matters. But the void you feel when that love goes away is gut-wrenching.”
Selena Gomez certainly did a number on him, didn’t she?
The single is now available on iTunes.
