"Holy" is a song by Canadian singer Justin Bieber featuring American rapper Chance the Rapper. It was released alongside a music video on September 18, 2020. The single marks the pair's fourth collaborative single following "Confident" (2013) and featured appearances on "I'm the One" (2017) and "No Brainer" (2018). The song was written by Anthony M Jones, Chancelor Johnathon Bennett, Jon Bellion, Jorgen Odegard, Justin Bieber, Michael Pollack, Steven Franks & Tommy Lee Brown and was produced by Jorgen Odegard, Jon Bellion, Tom Brown, Steven Franks & Michael Pollack. It took off the day, it was released to radio and stations jumped on board, as "Holy" been given plenty of airplay across the Hit Network, Nova & KIIS network around Australia. "Holy" is This Week's
Hot Debut entering the Hot 100 at #25.

It was only earlier this year that Justin Bieber released his highly anticipated fifth studio album ‘Changes’. After being met with unfavourable reactions, and having to downsize from stadiums to arenas on his upcoming tour, he reentered the studio during lockdown to try reclaim his throne that was ready for habitation.

‘Holy’ is the beginning of a new chapter for the singer-songwriter, and hears him steering towards a more pop directed sound again while intertwining a gospel inspired foundation. It has this uplifting and hopeful feel to it that makes you want to uncontrollably smile while listening to it. But what it’s lacking is memorability. While you enjoy listening to it in the moment, it’s not one that you walk away thoroughly remembering or purposefully wanting to replay.

Reflecting on the power of love and the prescriptions that come from religion and outsiders, it’s all about defying against all the odds. But it’s a little too surface level with no real further depth to the concept. “I hear a lot about sinners. Don’t think that I’ll be a saint. But I might go down to the river” he sings during the first verse before singing in the chorus; “The way you hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me. Feels so holy, holy, holy, holy, holy”.

‘Holy’ is definitely better than every song on ‘Changes’ combined, but it lacks creating the same firework magic that ‘Purpose’ delivered.

"Don't You Worry Child" is the sixth single released by Swedish house music supergroup Swedish House Mafia. It is the last single from their second studio album, Until Now, featuring vocals from Swedish singer John Martin. In the United States, it is the act's second number-one single on Billboard's Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart, following "Save the World". It is the group's final single released before their disbandment in early 2013. It received a Grammy nomination for Best Dance Recording in the 2013 Grammy Awards, as did its predecessor, "Save the World", the previous year. In the United Kingdom, "Don't You Worry Child" made its debut at number one with first week sales of 135,000 copies. It sold 632,000 copies in the United Kingdom in 2012, the 13th best-selling single of that year. In the United States, the song became Swedish House Mafia's biggest hit, peaking at number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it their first and only top ten single. The song has sold over 3 million copies in the United States as of March 2014,[6] and over 5.5 million copies worldwide. Don't You Worry Child has regained heavy rotation on many Radio Stations and made some further impact, when added to some radio playlists in the past week,"Don't You Worry Child" is this Weeks Greatest Gainer moving up 39 places from #92 to #53.

 

What comes to mind first when you think of Sweden’s musical contributions to global pop culture? Perhaps ABBA’s infectiously singable anthems from the ’70s and early ’80s? Roxette? Ace of Base? Or maybe one of the many songs penned by über-producer Max Martin for the likes of Britney Spears, Katy Perry, P!nk or Kelly Clarkson?

 

Respectable answers, all.

 

If you happen to be an electronic dance music aficionado, however, another group likely popped into your mind first: Swedish House Mafia. This trio of DJs hailing from Stockholm (Axel “Axwell” Hedfors, Sebastian Ingrosso and Steve Angello) has wielded significant influence in the burgeoning EDM scene as it’s surged toward the musical mainstream over the last few years.

 

Now, with the help of guest vocalist John Martin, Swedish House Mafia has landed its first hit in the Top 10 of Billboard’s mainstream singles chart … just as the group has announced that after the current tour, its three members will go their separate ways. For those of us who hadn’t heard of Swedish House Mafia before now, then, our first exposure is likely to be our last.

 

And that’s not necessarily a good thing. Despite this group’s suspiciously thuggish sounding moniker, “Don’t You Worry Child” delivers a surprisingly optimistic note of spiritual encouragement. In a nutshell, the song involves a father’s admonition to his struggling son not to let anxiety get the best of him. Why not? Because God’s got everything under control.

 

The track begins with a young man’s recollection of the safety and security he felt in his father’s house while growing up. “There was a time,” Martin sings, “I used to look into my father’s eyes/In a happy home/I was a king, I had a golden throne.” Even though Dad has passed on (“Those days are gone/Now the memories are on the wall”), something substantive from that formative season still shapes and soothes (“I hear the songs from the places where I was born”).

 

One important lesson came in a moment of wounding, when the boy suffered his first romantic disappointment. “Upon the hill across the blue lake,” Martin tells us, “that’s where I had my first heartbreak.” But Dad was there for him in that critical moment, gently affirming (albeit subtly) the guiding hand of God: “Don’t you worry, don’t you worry, child/See, heaven’s got a plan for you.”

 

It’s a message—and a hopeful exhortation—that’s repeated again and again against the musical backdrop of lunging synthesizers and building drumbeats so characteristic of the EDM genre. And when the boy experiences another, similar rejection a few years later, Dad’s there again with the same message: “Don’t you worry, don’t you worry, child/See, heaven’s got a plan for you.”

 

As Swedish swan songs go, then, this one’s got to rank among the most poignantly positive as it recalls a father’s tender encouragement and a reminder to keep your eyes on the bigger, spiritual picture in life.
