Justin Bieber’s collaboration with Big Sean, ‘As Long As You Love Me’, was released yesterday and now we get to hear his work with another Urban artist. Nicki Minaj scored a guest verse on Bieber’s ‘Beauty & A Beat’, which appears on the latter’s ‘Believe’ album.
Produced by Max Martin, ‘Beauty & A Beat’ is just one of the highly anticipated tracks on ‘Believe’, which will be released on June 19th. Yet, does the tune match the hype? Listen to ‘Beauty & A Beat’ below and decide for yourself:
Bieber really sounds most comfortable on Dance-themed tracks like ‘Beauty & A Beat’. The added vocal production melds perfectly with all the other effects and he isn’t forced to try singing unnecessary runs that depict exactly how weak he is as a vocalist. I won’t bother to review Minaj’s verse because she basically repeated the same rhymes for all her recent songs.
