Start Your Weekend Off Right With Justin Bieber’s New Album ‘Purpose’


Start Your Weekend Off Right With Justin Bieber’s New Album ‘Purpose’

Pop’s reformed bad boy Justin Bieber (that doesn’t even sound right, does it?) has just dropped his highly anticipated followup to 2012’s smash hit, Believe. JB’s fourth studio effort, Purpose, is a 19-track compilation of über infectious pop/R&B records with guest appearances from a number of his fellow chart-topping peers such as Travi$ Scott, Big Sean, Nas, Ariana Grande, Skrillex, Diplo and Ed Sheeran. According to Bieber, though – this album is more about making music his way:

“It’s hard to make meaningful songs that make you want to dance because it can come off cheesy. In the past I’ve recorded songs that I didn’t like, that I wouldn’t listen to, that the label was telling me to record. I’m self-expressing with this album — 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.”

While we’re currently on our third listen, you can stream Purpose in full via Spotify below.
