Justin Bieber follows up his recent offerings "Heartbreaker" and "All That Matters" with "Hold Tight," the latest gift to fans from his Music Monday series. Like its predecessors, the new record sees Bieber overwhelmed with the struggles of love.
“I am a hopeless romantic so when I love someone, I never want to let them go,” states Bieber. “This song is about the rush you get when you have that feeling. No matter how hard you try, you can’t let that person go. You just want to hold on as tight as you can. I tried to capture that with this one.”
Justin wrote these tracks while on his "Believe Tour" and he's only releasing a select few for his Music Monday series. At first his manager, Scooter Braun, was unsure about releasing the records, but Usher gave him the reason why he should.
Scooter opened up to Billboard:
He wrote these songs on the road. He paid to bring his engineer out. He recorded some of these songs in bedrooms and hotel rooms, he got it done wherever he could do it, because every night he wanted to write and express himself. And like I said, he has the big, international dance records, but he was very insistent that that's not what this body of work is. Even myself, I had a moment there where I wasn't sure, should we be doing this? But both Justin and Usher really helped me understand it. Usher called me up and we were talking about it, and he said, 'Scooter, artists need to have an "artist" moment. Otherwise, we'll go crazy.' And I think this is Justin's moment of truly being an artist and sharing who he is.
