The Biebs is Back

After 4 years, a breakup, a marriage, and multiple new lamborghinis, the King has finally made his return to the music world. On December 24, the Biebs announced that he would be dropping his first single, titled “Yummy” off of his fifth studio album on January 3, 2020 – along with a 10-part YouTube docuseries titled “Justin Bieber: Seasons” set to premiere January 27. The trailer features Bieber’s 2017 breakdown that caused him to cancel the last leg of his sold-out Purpose world tour, his recent marriage to supermodel Hailey Baldwin, as well as behind the scenes of recording his long-awaited album (that has taken 4 years to make). While this is Justin’s first docuseries, it is not his first dabble in the film industry with films such as “Never Say Never” (2011) and “Believe” (2013) detailing the making of Justin’s studio albums “My World 2.0” and “Believe”, as well as his rise to stardom and how it affected his teenage and adult years. While the upcoming docuseries features the making and promotion of a new album just as the movies “Never Say Never” and “Believe” did, it is a vastly different work of film than these previous documentaries. As Justin has semi-successfully avoided the limelight since around 2016, the public wants to know what’s been up. As the scheduled release of the 10-part series takes place in a week, we can expect that his album will be released shortly after. Tour dates are already out for the Justin Bieber 2020 Tour, but it is unclear when they will be on sale (however we can assume it will be shortly after his new album is released). Throughout his break, he has discussed the subject of mental health multiple times over social media –  as he wrote on Instagram in March that he was prioritizing his own mental health and personal relationships before the making of new music, as he said “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”. He is trying to deliver the astounding album he has promised for nearly five years, and among the announcement of his mental health battle along with his diagnosis of Lyme disease, we can only expect stellar music to come from Justin to reflect his immense struggles and growth since the release of his last album.
