“2 Much” is the opening track of Justin Bieber’s 2021 album ‘Justice.’ The song sets the theme for the song with a famous quote from Martin Luther King Jr., regarding justice.
Justin Bieber released his sixth studio album ‘Justice’ on March 19, 2021. This is his follow-up project to the 2020 release ‘Changes.’ Announcing the new album, Justin Bieber said “This is me doing a small part. My part. I want to continue the conversation of what justice looks like so we can continue to heal.”
The intro to the song is the infamous quote by Martin Luther King Jr.; “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere,” an excerpt from his ‘Letter from Birmingham Jail.’ Justin Bieber does pay tribute to MLK Jr. once more on this album with “MLK Interlude.” Although, he highlights the ongoing conversation of ‘justice’ or rather the lack of it around the world, and in the USA specifically, this song takes a different path in the lyrics.

The lyrics of “2 Much” continue a similar theme of Justin Bieber’s since his marriage to Hailey Baldwin. He has released many songs on romance, and quite a bit of them about his partner in real life.
In the first and second verses of the song, Justin Bieber sings about how much he is in love with his wife. He knows he stares at her too much, but it feels never enough. To be fair, she is a sight to behold!
The chorus of the song has a clear reference to one of the most iconic love anthems of our time: “I Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing” by Aerosmith from 1997. The referenced lyrics are;
Don’t want to close my eyes
Don’t want to fall asleep
‘Cause I’d miss you babe
And I don’t want to miss a thing
Justin Bieber finds is very difficult to part with his lover even for a few seconds. We can only hope their love would only blossom further.
