Justin Bieber’s sixth studio album is arriving sooner than expected. The Grammy Award-winning musician announced today that Justice will be released on March 19 via RBMG and Def Jam Recordings.
The album will feature the previously released singles “Anyone,” “Lonely” with Benny Blanco, and “Holy” featuring Chance The Rapper.
“In a time when there’s so much wrong with this broken planet, we all crave healing – and justice – for humanity. In creating this album, my goal is to make music that will provide comfort; to make songs that people can relate to, and connect to, so they feel less alone. Suffering, injustice and pain can leave people feeling helpless,” Bieber said of the Justice.
“Music is a great way of reminding each other that we aren’t alone. Music can be a way to relate to one another and connect with one another. I know that I cannot simply solve injustice by making music, but I do know that if we all do our part by using our gifts to serve this planet, and each other, that we are that much closer to being united. 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.”
Justice follows the release of last year’s Changes. The album, which is nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album at the 2021 Grammy Awards, produced hits “Intentions” with Quavo (nominated for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance) and “Yummy” (nominated for Best Pop Solo Performance).
The album featured collaborations with Kehlani, Post Malone, Travis Scott, Clever, and Lil Dicky. It has since been certified platinum and was Bieber’s seventh No. 1 entry on the Billboard 200 albums chart.
Late last year, Bieber appeared alongside Shawn Mendes on the single “Monster” from the latter singer’s album Wonder.
More recently, the singer surprised fans when he appeared as a guest performer at Spotify’s Stream On launch event on February 22. Bieber performed a three-song set including “Holy,” “Lonely,” and “Anyone.”
