Up until now, Justin Bieber’s “Music Mondays” series has been kind of a bummer. For the most part, the nine songs he’s offered up have been about heartbreak, heartache and trying to bounce back. He started to switch it up last week with “Change Me,” which focused on the girl who could be the one that wrongs all his rights and, yes, changes him.
On the 10th and final offering, “Confident,” Bieber turns things completely around, finally getting out of his ballad rut with a midtempo burner featuring Chance the Rapper that is all about the after-party.
“She’s got a body like that/I ain’t never seen nothing like that/Like a fantasy in front of me,” Bieber sings over the track’s skittering, bass-thumping funk beat. “I think that something special is going down/That’s right I thinks she foreign/Think she foreign, got passports.”
It’s not long until things get heavy when his girl starts dancing and “sexual romancing,” proving that she’s both nasty and fancy, even leaving some lipstick on Justin’s satin sheets. In case he didn’t mention it before, she’s confident and Justin is most definitely down with it.
By the time Chance shows up in the third verse, we’ve got a pretty good handle on what makes this woman special. But in case it’s unclear he paints a vivid picture. Spoiler alert: she kind of sounds like Miley Cyrus.
“Tattoos, piercings and she just learned to twerk/She ain’t gotta heart or a ass, just her brains, gotta ask cause her ass on a learning curve,” he raps. “And she love to earn the verb, I mean burn the word/That’s only legal with a doctor’s note.”
Fans were quick to weigh in, with one, Nisa, admitting that the tune immediately got her body movin’.

The Music Mondays songs have been released in the lead-up to his next movie, “Believe,” which is out on Christmas Day . Directed by “Never Say Never” director Jon Chu, the film will follow Bieber as he tours the world, records new music and takes on his biggest critics.
To date, Bieber has only made one official video for the series, the steamy clip for “All That Matters.”
