Justin Bieber, "One Less Lonely Girl"

70 Billboard Rating

Justin Bieber continues to croon his way into the hearts of tween girls everywhere with his sugary second single, "One Less Lonely Girl." Much as he did on his debut single, "One Time," Bieber makes a strong case for why he's the next pop/R&B heartthrob. "I'm gonna put you first, I'll show you what you're worth/ If you let me inside your world," he sings. The stump speech is hard to resist, especially when set to an arrangement that follows the lineage of hit midtempo ballads "With You" and "Irreplaceable." Although the lyrics are rather generic, Bieber's smooth delivery is right on point, and his tender vocals blend well with the song's easy-flowing beat. With this latest effort, Bieber keeps building momentum for his Nov. 17 debut album-and young girls around the world couldn't be happier.-Crystal Bell
