Bieber’s rebirth

When Justin Bieber was introduced into the music scene as a YouTube pop star by R&B singer Usher in 2009, big things were definitely expected of the then 13-year old. He released his album My World and hit singles like “Baby” and “One Less Lonely Girl” became anthems amongst fans that would eventually term themselves Beliebers. It has been a rollercoaster ride for Bieber as is expected of an artiste who has achieved quite a lot at an incredibly young age. Hit tracks have been mixed with public misdemeanors, arrests, publicized on and off relationships and professional setbacks. All of that and more seemed to be finally laid to rest with the release of his Purpose album. Purpose was an album that Bieber had to make at the time he made it as he was at the verge of being written off as another wasted talent. His reputation had to be fixed somehow and Purpose was meant to do that job. For the album to serve its purpose though (no pun intended), Bieber had to be humble and grow up. Def Jam Recordings and School Boy Records officially released purpose on November 13, 2015. The 18-track album marks Bieber’s first big project since 2012's Believe and is all about an entirely new sound. It can best be described as a mix of dance-pop and EDM music as well as including slight influences of tropical house in some tracks and live instruments such as acoustic guitars in a few others. It was an album Bieber claimed was created over a period of two years, in which he struggled to find a musical direction as he had to record, scrap and re-record quite a number of its tracks. The album featured heavy production from Skrillex and Diplo whom he had earlier worked with on hit single “Where Are You Now.” Purpose had guest features that included marquee names like Travis Scott, Nas, Halsey as well as Big Sean. Bieber’s intention with purpose was to create an album that could encourage people through uplifting messages and he did that to full effect, further displaying his new-found maturity. The album made a solid debut on its release, storming to the number one spot on the US Billboard 200. Prior to the album’s release, singles like “Sorry”, “What Do You Mean”, “Love Yourself” and “Company” had already been released to generally positive reviews. Purpose went on to nick Grammy nominations for Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album at the 59th Grammy Awards, while "Love Yourself" got nominated for Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance.

About

Purpose is the fourth studio album by Canadian singer Justin Bieber. It was released on November 13, 2015 by Def Jam Recordings and School Boy Records. It serves as the follow-up to Bieber's third studio album Believe (2012), and it was developed after the release of his compilation Journals (2013), which saw him musically in a more R&B direction. The album was created over a period of two years, in which Bieber struggled to find a musical direction for recording, scrapping each of the tracks on the album many times. Bieber has stated that the sound and the lyrical content of the album were heavily inspired by Chris Brown's 2012 album Fortune.
