Hello. Perfect. Sorry.

This week, three major pop icons released new music videos with their current number one hits. They are completely different from one another but amazing in their own right. Obviously most of the publicity has been garnered by Adele since this is her first debut in just under 5 years. One Direction had the limelight last week and Justin Bieber's current single has been slightly out-shined but he dominated the media last month with "What Do You Mean".
Which hit this week is your favorite?


Why is this a fun tune? : It's very aux-cord worthy and you can totally see yourself dancing to this in the bar. It's catchy and very similar to previous songs debuted within his album. Bieber is back and stronger than ever. Maybe he's finally becoming a mature pop star and I think fans are starting to love that.
Who is this song about? : Selena Gomez, duh. Pretty much this entire album is an ode to her and their previous relationship. It's not completely obvious since he doesn't personally interject anything too flashy but it was his longest and most public relationship so it has to stand for something.
Should you hit the repeat button? : YES.


Why is this so gorgeous? : It's haunting. It's stunning. It's heart-breaking. The lovely tune turns the tables where it's actually Adele who broke someone else's heart. Recently many pop stars are no longer talking about heart break but more about apologizing, breaking other people's hearts, and learning to move on. However, Adele does it better than anyone else.
Who is this song about? : Not quite sure. She's in a happy place right now but it's a single that is a bipolar opposite of what you would have found in her album 21. She's sorry and she's going to sing her beautiful tune about it.
Should you hit the repeat button? : YES OVER AND OVER AGAIN.


Why is this song so clever? : It is an identical copy of Swift's "Style". If Taylor Swift is going to get away with writing a song about one of her ex-lovers, there's no reason why one of her ex-lovers can't write a song about her. There are many hints throughout the video that nod towards Swift and it's genius. If you play 'Style' and 'Perfect' overtop one another, you'll notice that they are practically indistinguishable.
Who is this song about? : Taylor Swift, DUH.
Should you hit the repeat button? : Yes, of course.
@TessStevens I completely agree. Bieber's is almost created to be successful at this point. It has a good enough beat to dance to. A good enough beat to nod your head in approval. And good enough to be better than anything else he's put out into the music world in awhile. It's a recipe for success. But Adele on the other hand is pure perfection. Can't. Get. Enough.
It's so funny, because all of this new Bieber stuff is actually pretty okay. Good producers often yeild good results. It's not like the kid isn't talented either. Good choices. That Adele track is MAJOR! Glad we're seeing some great new pop tracks to lead us into the winter.
