5 Reasons We Can’t Wait for ‘Believe Acoustic’ (VIDEO)

Biebs Goes Acoustic
The singer announces a new acoustic album.
 Justin Bieber is ready to bare it all — for his Believe Acoustic album, that is.

Just seven months after dropping his third studio album, Believe, teen pop phenom will storm the charts again when his brand-new acoustic collection hits shelves on Tuesday.

Along with slower-paced, stripping-down versions of nine hit songs from his No. 1 LP, Bieber’s much-anticipated album will also deliver three new tunes: “Yellow Raincoat,” “Nothing Like Us,” and “I Would.”

“my acoustic album will let u know how I feel about what is going on in my life instead of rumors guessing,” Bieber wrote on Twitter earlier this month, later adding that it’s “the most honest music i have ever written.”

Now less than 24 hours before Bieber officially debuts his new work, Celebuzz reminds Beliebers of five reasons they can’t wait to hit play on Believe Acoustic.

1. Bieber could break Billboard records.
If Believe Acoustic shoots up to No. 1 on the Billboard 200, Bieber will make history — twice over. Not only would be become the only artist to have five No. 1 albums before turning 19, but he could join the ranks as one of just 10 acts that have scored a chart-topping album in four consecutive years. “It shows that I’m still making good music and people are supporting me and I’m not going anywhere any time soon,” he told Billboard of Believe Acoustic possibly nabbed that No. 1 spot. “This is just an acoustic album of an album that I’ve already put out and it’s going to go No. 1. That shows people that I’m still here and that talent rises above everything else. There’s so much going on. Talent rises above all of that.”

2. Bieber gets philosophical.
On one of his new, mature-sounding, melancholy tracks, “Yellow Raincoat” — listen to the maybe-leaked track below — Bieber bemoans the pitfalls of fame. “The fame, and the money, and the girl will drive you crazy,” he sings over guitar strumming. “I put on my raincoat/ my yellow raincoat/ baby it’s keeping me dry.”

3. Bieber croons about — deep breath — Selena.
Produced and written solely by Bieber, “Nothing Like Us” is a piano-back ballad that reveals the heartbreak behind his split from longtime love, Selena Gomez. “I gave you everything, baby, everything I had to give/ Girl, why would you push me away?/ Lost in confusion, like an illusion/ You know I’m used to making your day/ But that is the past now, we didn’t last now / Guess that this is meant to be/ Tell me was it worth it? We were so perfect/ But baby I just want you to see.” The meaning to the track? “Because at the end of the day, there’s nothing like us, you know?” Bieber explained to Billboard. “That’s just it. It is what it is. People are going to relate to that.”

4. Brand-new Bieber collaborators.
In addition to laying down nine tracks with his longtime musical director and guitarist, Dan Kanter, Bieber teamed up with new talent on his acoustic album. For “I Would,” a last-minute, mid-tempo addition to the LP, the teen pop phenom worked with production duo Da Internz, whose resume includes Rihanna, Big Sean and Nas. And after a collaboration last year, Bieber also got back together with Tom Strahle — who has worked with Taylor Swift and Jessy J — for “Yellow Raincoat.”

5. There’s more where this came from.
Beliebers can rest easy knowing that Believe Acoustic isn’t the only new Bieber music on the way. “Either next album or for something to release through the Internet,” he told Billboard. “I have so much on my mind, I want to put it in my music. I know I just put out Believe, and this acoustic album, but I want to produce music.
