Michael Bublé, "Haven't Met You Yet "

65 Billboard Rating

The lead single from Michael Bublé's forthcoming album is a snappy number about the push-and-pull quest for love. "I'm not surprised, not everything lasts," Bublé sings. "I've broken my heart so many times, I've stopped keeping track." But the pessimism turns on a dime for the chorus, as Bublé assures himself that an ideal relationship is just around the corner-refreshingly, though, he still views it in very real terms: "You'll make me work, so we can work to work it out." Though the courtly trumpet that sounds off during the bridge is hokey, Bob Rock provides an overall buoyant production that complements Bublé's jazz-inflected vocals and phrasing. "Haven't Met You Yet" is already breaking chart records in Bublé's native Canada and is a solid return for the artist. --Monica Herrera
