Justin Bieber Gets into the Dubstep Game With New Single "As Long As You Love Me"
The beginning of Bieberstep?
Justin Bieber and Big Sean walk into a room and say,"Let's make a dubstep track"--it sounds like the start to a bad joke, but unfortunately it's true. On the recently-released track "As Long As You Love Me," the Biebs attempts to woo little teen hearts with a slow-burning club music concoction that starts by repeating the phrase "As love as you love me" as if to romance you into submission before putting some serious bass in your face. The style of the song is actually more of a lovestep feel than anything, a hybrid genre well-suited for Weeknd-esque R&B crooners. The douche factor on the song doubles when rapper Big Sean makes a cameo and starts spitting rhymes than open with a line that pretty much sums up what all of us are thinking with this song: "I don't know if this makes sense, but...." For what it's worth, the slightly deeper-voiced Beiber vocals on this track make us wonder if the bass was the only thing that finally dropped.
