“I’ll be your lifeline tonight…I won’t let go.”
I won’t be letting go of this song any time soon.
Justin Bieber has been dominating the music scene lately, and I’m predicting that his latest, “Cold Water” with Major Lazer and MØ, is going to knock every potential summer song down a few notches…
It has the infectious island flavor that Major Lazer is well-known for and features a pulsing electronic beat, both of which are a surprising match for Justin’s soulful vocals.
Justin’s collaboration with Jack U last year was a hint at his versatility, but this is solid proof that he’s taken his pop roots as a foundation and fully grown into his sound–it’s more mature, a little daring, and a whole lot addicting.
MØ’s vocals are a complement to his as well–she sounds like a Tove Lo/Lana del Rey mixture–making the conclusion of the song an appealing web of harmonies.
