Justin Bieber – I’ll Show You
Justin is trying really hard to get back into the public’s good books, and in his latest effort he is showing. The lyrics “Don’t forget that I’m human…Don’t forget that I’m real” reveal a vulnerable and innocent side to Biebs and the way he sings them makes you want to (consider) forgiving him for all of his nonsense.
Lianne La Havas – Green & Gold
This song resonates because of it’s message and Lianne’s soulful voice. Lianne is reminiscing on worrying as a child about her looks and what her life would become, and how now in contrast she is happy in who she is and in whatever the future holds for her; inspiring.
Kirk Franklin – Wanna Be Happy
Apart from Kirk trying to look (and act) like Jamal from Empire, the song and video are very powerful and Kirk hasn’t disappointed.
MNEK & Zara Larsson
Despite the slightly obvious (in my opinion) likeness to ‘Where Are You Now’ by Jack Ü featuring the Biebs, I am a huge fan of this song, especially the last minute or so where they both just go OFF with the vocals. I’m a hit and miss MNEK fan but this is definitely a hit.
