Friday, Justin Bieber released Chances, his fifth studio album and the first since Purpose in 2015.
Needless to say, interest in it is explosive. The two teaser singles have both been massive hits for him. Simultaneous with the 17-track album’s release, all tickets for his lengthy 45-date tour went on sale.
Below, his interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe. It’s a remarkable conversation that finds the 25-year-old candid about his past, the significance of Jesus in his life today, how his wife Haley has turned his life around, what it’s like to live a life where people have told him he is “awesome” since his discovery in his teens, and how trust, acceptance and his relationship with his father have started to become staples in a life that has had its stormy weather. Towards the end of the interview, he discusses his own personal pain and the suffering of the many in this world. He comes close to shedding tears. Not the usual celebrity interview, but then Justin has forever proven himself to be anything but ordinary when it comes to sharing his life with fans.
That’s What Love Is
