YMMV / Justin Bieber

Go To

  • Cult Classic: Journals was not a commercial success at all, but many fans enjoy it for showing a Contemporary R&B side of Bieber that wouldn't get explored until Changes.
  • Narm:
    • "Yummy" is supposed to be a sensual track to show his new, mature self, but it becomes hilarious thanks to the chorus, "Yeah, you got that yummy, yummy, yummy, yummy, yummy, yummy yum", which makes him sound more like a little kid than adult showing his love for his wife.

    • "Holy", another song dedicated to Hailey (and God), comes as more laughable than love-inspiring thanks to Bieber's vocals coming off as less soulful and more deadpan and several out-there lyrics, such as "On God! Running to the alter like a trackstar!".
  • Win Back the Crowd: After spending most of 2013 and 2014 without hits, he managed to win back many of his former teenage fans in 2015 with two top-10 hits. The first hit was "Where Are U Now", an EDM track by Skrillex and Diplo (under the alias Jack U) that featured Bieber on lead vocals. The second and most career-reviving song was "What Do You Mean". It got surprisingly good reviews from Bieber's haters and debuted at #1 on the Hot 100, and his next two hits "Sorry" and "Love Yourself" also hit the top. His album Purpose was widely hailed as his best work ever, and debuted at #1 by selling a career-high 500,000 copies.

How well does it match the trope?
