Justin Bieber announced a few weeks ago that new music was coming, and we weren't disappointed when he dropped "Where Are U Now" with EDM powerhouses Diplo and Skrillex (collectively known as Jack U).
However, he hasn't done a full project since Journals
and I, for one, can't wait to see what he's got up his sleeve.
“I’m finishing up the album now, working with Kanye and Rick. I’m not rushing it, I’ll just wait until it’s totally done," he told USA Today recently
. "I don’t want to say ‘it’s different,’ because that’s what everyone says. But it is
different, it’s a grown-up version of Justin and I think people will be shocked.”
After I heard "Love Me Like You Do" a couple of years back, I'm not sure he'll ever shock me with his grown-up sound ever again. In fact, I'm all for it.
The 21-year-old added that he redid his album because past, er, experiences/run-ins with the law took him in a new direction.
“My whole direction has changed. What you are thinking about all the time is what you write, and now that I’m thinking about more positive things, it completely changes my music. I had to re-do my whole (new) album. It was done but it didn’t match up to where I am now and where my head’s at. I want to tell my story, but I also want to give people hope. I lost hope for a while, I was in a dark place, but it’s about getting out of that rut. It’s about knowing there’s sunshine on the other side," he said.
Excited to hear what he's been working on? Comment below.
