Justin Bieber has made more headlines this year for his indiscretions than he has for his music, but that doesn't mean his upward-climbing sonic maturity fell completely by the wayside. With his #MusicMondays singles release program, his given listeners a view into the R&B refinement that's dictating his sound. While there have been a handful of songs to note (the Craig David-sampling "Recovery" and "Wait a Minute" featuring Tyga are also good) "Hold Tight" is the standout. His desire is palpable, particularly when he sings, "missing you is like adrenaline... I'm a fan and you're the rock star." As he says, "visualize a monster," take note: if Bieber continues like this, his superstardom might get downright scary. —Claire Lobenfeld
