Single review: Justin Bieber - U Smile

Justin Bieber

Release date

13 September 2010

The style

Justin's new single has a steady beat and uplifting tune. It's similar to many of his other tracks, but it's up there as one of his favourites...

The words

Whenever you smile, I smile. That's the message in this song.

It's about young love and friendship and that he'll do anything for that special someone.

Will you still be humming it next week?

You'll certainly find yourself humming to the chorus, but whether this has the popularity of One Time is still to be seen.

Whatever happens, it's sure to be another hit with Bieber fans around the world.

Will it make the charts?

Of course! JB reckons it's one of the best tracks he's ever recorded - but you guys will be the judge of that!
