    Pass or Fail:


  • "Brown first revealed plans to collaborate with Bieber..." - Instead of "Bieber" make it "Justin Bieber"; wiki-link if necessary
  • "...which accompanied the release of his 3D documentary/concert film, Justin Bieber: Never Say Never." - This part is not necessary to this article
  • "...the chord progression of E♭–B♭–Cm–A♭ - Needs a period at the end of the sentence
  • "Furthermore, Charley Rogulewski called the song..." - Specify who Rogulewski is
  • "Jon Caramanica of The New York Times the song didn't compliment..." - Doesn't make sense
  • "On the week ending April 9, 2011, due to digital sales after the release of F.A.M.E., "Next 2 You" debuted on the US Billboard Hot 100 and the Canadian Hot 100." - Put date at the end of the sentence to make it more clear
  • "It spent one week on the chart.[17] although it has yet to be released as a single." - Fix grammar and put source at end of sentence
  • "...has been released on 17th June 2011 via VEVO." - Fix date format
  • The second part of the "Music video" section does not have any sources, making it violate WP:NOR
  • Music video synopsi do not need references, however as it was only premiered a few days ago I will expand and reference the section some more. Adabow (talk · contribs) 04:57, 24 June 2011 (UTC)
  • The article does not contain any images to illustrate the article
  • There are no free images able to illustrate components of the article. It does, however, contain a non-free audio snippet. Adabow (talk · contribs) 04:57, 24 June 2011 (UTC)


There are a lot of things that need to be fixed. Most of the mistakes are simple mistakes that can be fixed quickly. That is why I am putting the article on hold until the problems can be fixed for good article status. - Rp0211 (talk2me) 07:04, 23 June 2011 (UTC)

Candy seems busy IRL, so I have fixed the issues you pointed out. Please do not make a decision to list or fail the article yet, as the music video is new and the article needs some touching up in that section. Adabow (talk · contribs) 04:57, 24 June 2011 (UTC)
Most of the mistakes have been fixed. Because of the music video section, I am not passing this article quite yet. Be aware that because of the policy GAN#On_hold, I generally only have one week to pass or fail a good article nomination. Therefore, if all problems are not addressed during the seven days, the article may have to be failed in this nomination. - Rp0211 (talk2me) 06:25, 24 June 2011 (UTC)
How is it now? Adabow (talk · contribs) 08:34, 24 June 2011 (UTC)
With the errors being fixed in this article, I feel confident to pass this article. Please continue to expand the article and find more images if you can. - Rp0211 (talk2me) 22:24, 24 June 2011 (UTC)

Title not "Next to You"?[edit]

I'm perplexed by how the article is titled "Next 2 You" when the song is called "Next to You" on 1) the single cover on this very article, 2) the iTunes single, and 3) on the official website & YouTube page. Shouldn't we aim for official song titles? --PenaltyKillahJw21 16:38, 1 November 2011 (UTC)

You are right, it should be changed to "Next to You". Although the album mentions it as "Next 2 You". Will that be a problem? Oz talk 23:01, 1 November 2011 (UTC)
... Hmm, really? So does the album: [1] --PenaltyKillahJw21 14:07, 6 November 2011 (UTC)
