‘Tis the season for Christmas albums and Justin Bieber sure knows how to sell them. His holiday album Under the Mistletoe peaked at #1 on three album charts in all three countries in North America. Talk about international outreach. The lead-off single Mistletoe has received a lot of airplay but has failed to really chart well as a stand-alone track. Here’s hoping that his collaboration with Boyz II Men can help him climb some R&B charts leading up to December 25.
In the track titled Fa La La, the song really shows off Justin’s newly changed voice in a nice vocal blend with the trio that is Boyz II Men. The track was penned by Adonis Shropshire, Bernard Harvey and the Biebs himself. I personally like this track better than Mistletoe and I think that it has more of a long-lasting Christmas feel that could become one of those classics like the ones we listen to on replay from Britney Spears and Mariah Carey.
The video itself is pretty laid-back and stripped down. All in black and white, Justin along with the boys sing out the track with minimal effects or visuals. It’s a nice change for Justin to allow us to really enjoy the song and hear just how much his voice has changed. If you really like this track, you should go get the a cappella version on iTunes. Those harmonies they hit are ridiculous. Check out the Fa La La video below.
