  • Lyrics
  • The sixth promotional single from Justin's #MusicMondays series finds the Canadian Pop star trying to explain to his love interest that he's not the bad guy that so many people say he is. He croons on the ballad's chorus regarding the haters who try to bring him down.

    "They try to get at me
    Behind your back
    Tryin' to tell me that I'm just like the others
    But I ain't all bad."

    Like the other songs from Justin's #MusicMondays series, the single comes with a simple graphic image on its cover; in this instance it is a sad face emoticon.
  • The song was released just a week after Justin was allegedly spotted exiting a Brazilian brothel coupled with a unsuccessful attempt by police from the same country to question him about defacing a public building with graffiti. Though it could be argued the two instances highlighted the singer's message, they didn't exactly help his cause.
