The Biebs is back 3 years since his last album Believe, the pop sensation returns with his fourth album “Purpose” — and it’s said to be “his most personal album yet.” The 19-track deluxe edition re-introduces us to a now mature Bieber, age 21, who is no longer that little boy. He’s taking risks as he embarks on a new chapter in his career, he sings about the ups and downs of fame, relationships, and persecution by the media.
“I’m self-expressing with this album,” he told Billboard. “I can’t skip on the moments that were dark, the moments that were happy, the ex-girlfriend stuff. It makes it real, rather than ‘Let’s call up Max Martin to write you a hit song.’ I want my music to be inspiring.”
The album features many collaborators like Big Sean, Travis Scott, Nas, and Halsey, plus production from Skrillex, Mike Dean, Diplo, and Poo Bear. Ed Sheeran co-wrote “Love Yourself,” while Ariana Grande appears on an iTunes exclusive remix to “What Do You Mean?”
