Justin Bieber's Stuck In Love on 'Hold Tight' Track: Listen
"Got me stuck like crazy glue," Biebs laments on his latest R&B jam.
Justin Bieber's "Music Mondays" roll on with "Hold Tight," the third and perhaps the most emotionally bare entry in the weekly release series, on Monday (Oct. 21). Fans of "Heartbreaker" and "All That Matters" are in for a slinky, subtly devastating treat.
On "Hold Tight," Bieber sorrowfully delivers each syllable with the very real chance of devolving into an awe-inspiring howl; thankfully, he never gets that fully haunted by the memories of a kiss he cannot escape. "Something like a zip-lock/But a lip lock/Want you wrapped around me like a wrist watch," Bieber seethes, as souped-up beats blink and fade around his pain.

Last week, Bieber's manager, Scooter Braun, told Billboard that his ongoing "Music Mondays" songs were created while the pop superstar was "going through a tough time" on the road on his Believe tour earlier this year. "If you listen to the lyrics in these songs -- 'Heartbreaker,' 'All That Matters' -- he's pouring his heart out," says Braun, adding later, "I think, right now, he's in the best place he's been in a long time. He's so incredibly grateful to see the reaction from people to this music."
"Music Mondays" will continue through mid-December, and be punctuated by the Christmas Day release of Bieber's second feature film, "Believe 3D." "Heartbreaker," which was released two weeks ago to kick off the 10-week release series, zipped to No. 13 on last week's Hot 100 chart.
