Justin Bieber’s album Changes wasn’t the biggest hit in his discography. In fact, it sold considerably fewer copies than its predecessor, Purpose. Surprisingly, Bieber seems to be getting a lot of mileage out of Changes.

How is he doing this? Well, he’s been releasing EPs composed of songs from the album. The first was a collection of R&B-themed tracks called R&Bieber. His latest EP is a collection of the songs from Changes which his wife likes the most called Hailey’s Faves. Here’s a look at each of the songs from the EP.

5. ‘That’s What Love Is’

Here’s a perfect song for a wedding reception. In fact, it’s so perfect for a wedding reception that Bieber sang it at his wedding reception. The song has some appealingly 1990s-sounding Spanish guitar which sounds pretty nostalgic.

Bieber’s falsetto takes center stage near the end of the track. It’s a wonder he doesn’t use it more often when it sounds so delicate and haunting. This song discusses romance in a very mature, adult way, so it’s no wonder it has a special place in Mrs. Bieber’s heart.

4. ‘E.T.A.’

Here’s another track which sees Bieber incorporating more guitar into his music than usual. If Bieber keeps going in the musical direction of “That’s What Love” Is and “E.T.A.,” he could end up a soft rock superstar. He could give the soft rock genre a much-needed shot in the arm.

There’s nothing particularly romantic about an E.T.A. – except in Bieber’s hands. Here, Bieber makes the simple task of asking for an E.T.A. sound like a beautiful moment between man and wife. This track manages to capture romantic cloning in a strangely relatable way. At this point, Bieber might be able to sing a shopping list and make that sound romantic!

3. ‘Available’

Here Bieber delves into the electronic side of his sound with a beautiful synthesizer riff opening. Trap music can sometimes sound menacing, but “Available” proves it can sound pretty. Bieber’s more relaxed vocal performance makes the song sound comforting.

The lyrics also deal with the issue of couples being separated due to scheduling issues. That’s certainly something superstars like the Biebers have dealt with, but all couples deal with it at some point. I guess the Biebers aren’t so different from the rest of us after all!

2. ‘Changes’

If you’re going to name an album after one of its tracks, that track better not disappoint. “Changes” rises to the occasion. In the song, Bieber says he wants to be the best version of himself for his wife.

“Changes” also includes one of the most poignant lyrics on the album. On the track, Bieber sings “Though I’m going through changes/Don’t mean that I changed.” What a simple and effective way to discuss remaining who you are in the midst of upheaval.

1. ‘Intentions’ feat. Quavo

Minimalism is in style in pop music. Bieber gets on the bandwagon with intentions. The synth riff from this track is so lowkey but it still manages to mesmerize.

This list doesn’t include any features besides Quavo’s. On intentions, Quavo proves yet again his lyricism can work well on a pop song. His bars about commitment complement the rest of the album perfectly.
