For the third installment of Music Mondays, the Biebs dropped another romantic song on Oct. 20 called “Hold Tight.” Is this another tune about Selena?
After following up “Heartbreaker” and “All That Matters” — two songs with overt themes of love — with “Hold Tight,” it’s clear that there was one thing and one thing only on Justin Bieber’s mind in the studio: romance, particularly with Selena Gomez.
Justin Bieber Releases ‘Hold Tight’
Justin dropped “Hold Tight” just before midnight on Oct. 20, the third installment in his Music Mondays series. And you don’t need to look any further than the title to figure out what it’s about. Is Justin saying he never wants to let go of Selena?
To fit with the romantic theme, the song’s music is smooth and cool, definitely fitting in with its predecessors, “Heartbreaker” and “All That Matters.” And the lyrics are all about showing a ton of affection.
After aggressively counting down the release time, Justin finally dropped the song with a flirtatious tweet:

Once again, Selena’s influence is totally apparent. Justin whispers “Happy birthday,” during the intro of the song, and we can’t help but flashback to July 27 when Justin romantically surprised the “Come & Get It” singer at her 21st birthday party.
Justin Bieber’s New Love Songs — About Selena Gomez?
Justin clearly had Selena on the brain when he was in the studio recording these songs. “Heartbreaker,” as Justin explained in his own words, was about going through the heartbreak of losing her; “All That Matters” was about loving her so much that he’d do anything for her; and now there’s “Hold Tight,” which seems to be about intimacy and never letting go of love.
We love that Justin’s Music Mondays songs have all fit a certain theme, and we love that he’s been able to capture his relationship with Selena so beautifully.
