Pros: very good follow up cd
Cons: none that I can think of
Justin Bieber’s cd My World 2.0 is the follow up to his debut cd My World. This cd features the songs Baby, Somebody To Love, and Eenie Meenie.
I bought My World 2.0 because I was impressed with Justin Bieber’s debut cd so I wanted to hear the second one. I wondered if he would fall victim to the sophomore jinx even though this is technically part of his first cd. I wasn’t sure if he only had one good cd in him. It turned out that I was wrong. My World 2.0 is just as good as his My World cd.
My World 2.0 contains some very good songs. It’s similar to the style on his previous cd. He sang about relationships just as he did on his first cd. He has a balance of dance songs and ballads on this cd.
Justin worked with The Dream, C Tricky Stewart, Christina Milian, Brian Michael Cox, Adam Messinger, Benny Blanco, as well as others. Justin also co-wrote his songs. I respect the fact that he co-wrote more songs on this cd. Ludacris, Usher, Jessica Jarrell, and Sean Kingston make guest appearances on the cd.
Justin’s vocals are a little stronger on this cd. The cds were released close together, but I was able to tell the difference. He really gives these songs his all. I was impressed with his voice. I love how he holds notes in these songs. I always like listening to singers holding notes.
U Smile has a pop beat. The music is pretty good. The keyboard and drums are infectious. His tenor vocals work with the beat. I like how he belts towards the end of the song. I do think that he could have held a note, but I’m satisfied by his performance. Overboard (featuring Jessica Jarrell) has a pop beat. The music is very good. It reminds me of Beyonce’s Irreplaceable. I’m not familiar with Jessica Jarrell, but she has a very good voice. She sounds similar to Kristinia DeBarge and Jordin Sparks. Justin and Jessica’s voices blend well together. They sound similar in the background. I respect the fact that Justin and Jessica held notes towards the end of the song. Up has an r&b beat. I like the melancholy sound of the beat. It’s a different sound for Justin. He sings the song softly to match the music. He did sing a little loud in parts of the chorus and towards the end and it worked for me. I have no complaints. That Should Be Me has a pop beat. The music is pretty. I like how the keyboard, guitar, and violin dominate the music. Justin sings with a lot of passion and soul for someone so young. He takes some risks by holding multiple notes throughout the song. He didn’t hold the notes long, but I applaud him for trying to do it. I have no complaints about this beautiful song.
Baby (featuring Ludacris) has a pop beat. The keyboard and drums drive the music. The beat is amazing. I have to get up on the dance floor when I hear it. Justin and Ludacris seem like an unlikely pair, but it works. They work well together. I’m not surprised it was a hit for him because the song is good. Somebody To Love has a pop/dance beat. The music is incredibly catchy. The keyboard and drums are on point. The beat is perfect for dancing which I enjoy doing. Justin’s vocals are strong. I like how he belts the chorus. Usher provides ad libs and that helps the song stand out to me. I have no complaints. Stuck In The Moment has a pop beat. The drums drive the music. I like how Justin sings some of the lyrics with an echo. It makes the song sound different. I like how he sings in a higher octave when he sings the hook. I also like that he sings the lyrics in time with the drums. Runaway Love has a pop/r&b beat. The music is great. Everything about this song works for me. Justin has excellent timing on the song. He sings in time for each beat change. His tone is perfect for the music. I love singing this song with him. Never Let You Go has a pop/r&b beat. The music is great. Justin sings this in his upper register. He also uses a double. He sings one half in his upper register and the other in his lower register. He sings this with so much passion. I like how he sings ad libs while he sings the chorus. He also held little notes while he sang the chorus. I was very impressed. Eenie Meenie (featuring Sean Kingston) has a dance beat. The music is infectious and perfect for dancing. Sean Kingston and Justin Bieber are friends in real life so I guess that explains why they were able to work so well together. I wasn’t sure if this pairing or the song would work, but I’m happy to say that it worked. Hopefully they will work together again in the future.
Justin Bieber’s My World 2.0 is a very good follow up to his debut cd. I liked this cd just as much as his previous cd. There’s no filler and I could hear all of these songs on the radio. In my opinion, he didn’t fall victim to the sophomore jinx. I highly recommend it.
I give this cd 5 stars because it’s a very good cd.
