Hide your girlfriends, Justin Bieber released a new album. Nearly five years after the release of his album “Purpose”, Bieber dropped “Changes” on Feb. 14th, 2020. For the past five years Bieber has only graced the music industry with features on hit songs like “Despacito”, and “10,000 Hours”. While these songs flew to the top charts, according to Billboard.com, Bieber has not had one of his own songs on the Billboard Top Charts since December 5th, 2015. Since then Bieber has gotten engaged and then married to model, Hailey Baldwin and tried his best to stay out of the spotlight to the best of his ability. From the DUI, to his arrest in Ontario for assault, growing up in front of the world almost destroyed him. In 2019, he took a hiatus from music with the purpose of becoming a better husband to Baldwin, and to focus on the deep rooted issues in his life. The teen pop sensation has had a whirlwind past five years, and the distinct difference between “Purpose” and “Changes” demonstrates the change in his life very well. From the rebellious, teenage stage ending to the new settled and calm beginning the new Bieber has begun.
