Sans a few features, Justin Bieber has largely been absent from the charts since wrapping up the campaign for his last studio album ‘Purpose.’
Naturally, his fervent fanbase have been thirsting for new music. However, in an open letter, the singer says he’s not ready to pour fresh material out…just yet.
A candid account of his road to personal peace awaits below…
Via Justin Bieber:
So I read a lot of messages saying you want an album .. I’ve toured my whole teenage life, and early 20s, I realized and as you guys probably saw I was unhappy last tour and I don’t deserve that and you don’t deserve that, you pay money to come and have a lively energetic fun light concert and I was unable emotionally to give you that near the end of the tour. I have been looking, seeking, trial and error as most of us do, I am now very focused on repairing some of the deep rooted issues that I have as most of us have, so that I don’t fall apart, so that I can sustain my marriage and be the father I want to be. Music is very important to me but Nothing comes before my family and my health. I will come with a kick ass album ASAP, my swag is undeniable and my drive is indescribable his love is supernatural his grace is that reliable…. the top is where I reside period whether I make music or not the king said so. 👑 but I will come with a vengeance believe that.. (grammar and punctuation will be terrible pretend it’s a text where u just don’t care).
Props to JB for being open about his hardships. Much like Big Sean‘s recent revelations, it’s great to see artists (especially male acts, who were once encouraged to bottle it up) be open about mental health and wellness.
In any case, though Justin’s music has rarely roused us like “that-that,” he clearly has a fandom that he does satisfy. So here’s wishing him the best ahead of his return.
