Just today (November 2) Justin Bieber followed up “What Do You Mean” and “Sorry” with “I’ll Show You,” the third track off of his upcoming record Purpose. The Biebs took it down a notch with the balladic tune that tugs at our heartstrings.
At this time where Justin Bieber is the name on everyones lip thanks to his new, infectious sound — complete with the same killer vocals that we fell in love with — it’s hard to remember a time before Justin Bieber wasn’t in our lives.
The Canadian has been on our radar (and on our iPods) for five glorious years but it feels like we’ve been listening to him forever. Back in 2010 when “One Time” hit the airwaves (and Family Channel) people from everywhere were wondering where this swishy-haired blonde musician had come from.
In those five years we’ve seen the evolution of the 21-year-old both as an artist and as a person. We’ve been there for the ups and the downs; from “Baby” to “Sorry,” and everything in between.
With a new sound and a new inspiration bringing him back into the music world after a short (but painful) hiatus, JB has been working hard on “Purpose”. He teased us for weeks with the album title and artwork — which was basically fangirl torture. Recently, in a brilliant marketing move, he posted shots of the album’s songs in graffiti, which were created all over the world. Like the good Canadian boy he is, he made sure Toronto was on that list.
He’s got the talent, the drive and the charm that keeps us coming back for more. With the new single and the upcoming release of Purpose, it’s time that we send some love Justin’s way to thank him for his hard work and his new music.
Here are the 10 reasons why the Biebs give us Purpose:
1. How much he loves his fans
2. He’s giving us the Ed Sheeran collaboration we need in our lives
We neeeeed to know what the song’s called!
3. #Jelena’s friendship and support for one another
We love their friendship and the way they are there for one another.
4. Those dance moves
So. Much. Swagger.
5. We owe a debt of gratitude to Calvin Klein
6. He gave us his very own Christmas special
It really is the most wonderful time of the year.
7. His constant motivation to be his best self
We beleib in you, Justin!
8. He’s not afraid to be a little silly
Cute, talented AND a sense of humor? Sign us up!
9. There’s nothing like celebrating the holidays with JB
No need for flowers and chocolate, JB is all we need.
10. And there’s nothing hotter than a drummer
