Justin Bieber Releases "Somebody to Love" Single
"Somebody to Love" is a song performed by Canadian recording artist Justin Bieber.
The song serves as the second single from his album, My World 2.0. It was written by Bieber, Heather Bright, and The Stereotypes, and produced by The Stereotypes. The song features background vocals from Bieber's mentor Usher. The song is an upbeat dance song, with R&B tones with influences of eurodisco. It Impacted U.S. mainstream and rhythmic radio on April 20, 2010.
Produced by R & B trio Stereotypes (who've previously lorded over tracks by Ne-Yo, Danity Kane and Mary J. Blige, among others), "Somebody to Love" is, contrary to the hit-making team's moniker, fairly automated (and Auto-Tuned) stuff. The formula that has worked so well for Stereotypes during the last half-decade---a propuslive double-time disco beat awash in mild trance---is instantly recognizable as Teen Beat phenom Bieber coos, "For you I'd write a symphony." Or, as the case, may be, have a middle-aged man write him subliminally flirtatious couplets about the simple desires of teenage romance.
