Justin Bieber reveals his true feelings for ex Selena Gomez in new acoustic track “Nothing Like Us.”
After sources close to Bieber revealed to Ryan how the emotional song originated, Ryan shared during “On Air with Ryan Seacrest“: “[Justin] played the song back for Scooter after he recorded it and Scooter said, ‘This is amazingly compelling and authentic and real and what you’re going through, we’ve got to put it on the acoustic album.’”
However, Justin was hesitant at first, saying, “I don’t want to do it…it’s too personal.”
However, as Ryan recounted, “a couple days went by and then eventually he decided it was so personal it should be on the album.”
Listen to the full song above and Ryan’s scoop below:
When you can strip back your songs to just an acoustic guitar and vocals, you’ve got some true timeless talent. That’s what Justin Bieber does on his impressive and irresistible Believe Acoustic record, transposing tracks from the blockbuster Believe into acoustic form.
Bieber’s voice and playing get the spotlight here, and he shines with legendary soul. Believe Acoustic not only illuminates his extensive natural gifts, but it also highlights the potency of his songs. “Boyfriend” becomes an acoustic R&B love letter that’s as infectious as ever even without the massive production. “As Long As You Love Me” could be played at weddings for the next century it’s so heartfelt in acoustic form. “Fall” boasts the kind of pensive folk and storytelling that only the best can pull off. Make no mistake about it, he’s the best right now.
The three songs recorded specifically for Believe Acoustic shimmer with undeniable power. “Yellow Raincoat” glistens like falling drops on a summer afternoon with pensive, poetic dreaminess. Meanwhile, “I Would” steps along with sunny flavor and smart lyrics. Then, there’s “Nothing Like Us”, which builds from a soft piano line into one of Bieber’s biggest melodies ever.
Believe Acoustic evinces just how dynamic and diverse Bieber as and it further solidifies him as a modern icon with a magical ability to make hearts flutter with a song. It’s one of the best pop releases and acoustic albums in recent memory and further reason why he’s the 21st century’s king.
If Justin Bieber’s “Believe Acoustic” reaches No. 1 on the Billboard 200, it will mark two historic achievements for the singer/songwriter.
First, he’ll be the only artist in history to have five No. 1 albums before turning 19. Presently, both he and Miley Cyrus are tied with four chart-toppers at such a young age. Cyrus, now 20, logged her so-far quartet of No. 1s between 2006 and 2009. Her last No. 1-the Hannah Montana: The Movie soundtrack-hit the top of the chart dated May 2, 2009, when she was 16 years and five months old.
Second, Bieber may become just the 10th act to score a No. 1 album in four consecutive years.
In 2010, he topped the list with My World 2.0 and followed that in 2011 with Never Say Never: The Remixes (EP) and Under the Mistletoe. Last year, he debuted at No. 1 with Believe.
Jay-Z has the longest streak of consecutive years with No. 1 albums-seven. Between 1998 and 2004, he tallied at least one chart-topper. In 2004, he doubled up, scoring leaders with both Unfinished Business (with R. Kelly) and MTV Ultimate Mash-Ups Presents: Collision Course (with Linkin Park).
Aside from Jay-Z, the other acts with No. 1 albums in four (or more) years in a row are: the Beatles (six years, 1965-70) Paul McCartney/Wings (five, 1973-77), Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass (four, 1965-68), Garth Brooks (four, 1991-94), Chicago (four, 1972-75), Elton John (four, 1972-75), the Rolling Stones (four, 1971-74) and Cyrus (four, 2006-09).
Bieber graces the cover of this week’s Billboard magazine in what is the lone major interview he’s done for the new album. Buy the issue here – also on the iPad – and return to Billboard.com on Monday to read the exclusive cover story and get a first listen of a track from the record.
It might be the Christmas holidays, but there’s no hanging about seeing how many Babybels you can fit in your gob for Justin Bieber, who’s instead spent his time off recording a couple of new tracks to add to the acoustic release of latest album Believe, due out in January.
Tweeting his followers to share the news, the Biebs said: “8 wasnt enough. had to write some more new ones. now im putting out 10 SONGS on#BELIEVEacoustic. Im telling u. PREORDER it now :)” [sic]
While we naturally assumed that this was meant as a confirmation that there will be 10 naked pictures on the cover art, El Biebo’s manager, Scooter Braun, went and crushed all our dreams by reiterating that they were definitely just talking about the music. At least there’s some new music instead.
“For those asking yes @justinbieber played guitar on the acoustic album. and yes there r now 10 song not 8 because he wrote 2 new ones 2nite,” he tweeted.
“No BS when i say we are all really happy with how #BELIEVEacoustic turned out. It all sounds new and organic. Think u will all love it.”
We all know how Justin Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun, felt about his most famous client getting snubbed at this year’s Grammys. But, on Friday (December 14), Bieber himself will share his reaction to the non-omination for the first time on the “Ellen DeGeneres Show,” and he’s not that happy either!
“I was looking forward to [possible Grammy noms], but I know it will happen one day,” Bieber said in an interview airing Friday, in which he admits that the shut-out of Believe was a “big bummer” for him.
But he’s clearly not letting it get him down, because in that same interview he confirmed the upcoming release of the acoustic album he hinted at last week in a series of tweets. And MTV News confirmed on Friday (December 14) that the EP will be titled Believe Acoustic and feature seven songs, plus a bonus track.
“It’s something the fans really like,” Bieber said about unplugged performances of songs including “Boyfriend” and “As Long As You Love Me,” which he’s been mixing into his sets all year. “Because I started out on YouTube just playing my guitar, just singing without all the production, so I like to just put out acoustic albums. I think it’s more intimate.”
Though he didn’t reveal a title or the track list for the disc he said will drop in January, MTV News has reached out to a spokesperson for Bieber’s label who confirmed the project’s title and release date. We’ll bring Beliebers more details as soon as they’re available.
“Been writing alot…new stuff…and yeah. the acoustic album, new arrangements, is happening… #withdankanter,” he tweeted last week. Hours later, he added, “blessed to do what we do everyday. i love music. thanks.”
He updated the progress on Thursday, tweeting, ”Back in the studio making sure I deliver for you,” with producer Dan Kanter adding, “So many songs to choose from. Which ones do you want to hear #acoustic???”
A short time later, Bieber showed his work, posting a picture on Instagram of his feet up on a studio console during a session for the stripped-down disc.
It’s not the first time Bieber will set the beats aside, as he released My Worlds Acoustic in 2010, which re-visited versions of some of his biggest tunes, including “Baby,” “One Less Lonely Girl” and the then-new track, “Pray.”
As for the Grammy brushoff, so far Bieber is used to keeping his seat on music’s biggest night, as he lost out to jazz singer/bassist Esperanza Spalding two years ago in his first bid for an award. Justin’s not sweating it, though, telling Ellen that there is plenty of time for him to get his Grammy gold in the future.
“I’m so young, I’m only 18,” he said. “I’m just blessed to be able to do what I love every day. And the AMAs was a lot of fun for me so…Hopefully, one day.” Bieber snagged three wins at last month’s American Music Awards, including Artist of the Year, Favorite Male Artist Pop/Rock and Favorite Album — Pop/Rock.
