With this year's VMA's trending worldwide again, whether it is in regards to; Miley v Nicki, Yeezy 2020, Macklemore's new track “Downtown” or once again T. Swift killing it in the awards! The one thing that is on everyone's mind is that JB is back! And after a rollercoaster year he was back on the stage performing "Where Are Ü Now" and the much anticipated song "What do you mean?".....WOW! Now honestly I will say that I have never been a big fan of the Biebs, however he's got a new belieber after that emotional performance! Not only are the songs "catchy" and have a great beat to them, you can also tell that he is on a new path with his music career! Plus his new music video has shown that the once high pitch, bowl hair cut youtube star has definitely grown up!

Now what’s a 21 yr old’s opinion mean, nothing! But while I was working the day after the VMA’s, a man covered in tattoos from head to toe and looked like he could out bench Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, turned to me and asked “Is this the new Justin Bieber song, how good is it!” Now again what’s one scary looking man’s opinion mean, a lot more!

Where now for Justin? Personally I believe he should stick with EDM (Electronic Dance Music, for all you young beliebers). With his friendship group having a huge impact on the EDM world from Skrillex to Diplo just to name a few. Justin has a chance to grow his fan base by attracting the “18+” crowd and yes performing at the VMA’s is a big thing, but imagine performing every year at some of the biggest music festivals in the world; Coachella, Glastonbury, Tomorrowland and Ultra.

At the end of the day, Justin is back with some great songs and only time will tell which way his music goes.


Should JB stick with EDM?
