Billboard Singles Review: You Are Loved (Don't Give Up)
September 23, 2006
With a precious handful of artists that adult contemporary radio can call its own, Josh Groban's return is an event -- and he certainly doesn't disappoint with the first single from his upcoming third set, due Nov. 7. "You Are Loved (Don't Give Up)" is instantly recognizable, with Groban's robust vocal command and inspirational, orchestral template, but it also shows the young singer's desire to shake things up a tad. The song adds a little uptick in tempo to his elegant pop-classical signature, which works well to modernize his sound without alienating his dedicated minions. With adults showing muscle at retail these days, this sounds like a sure bet.
