It has been four years since Justin Bieber has released any new music. He's been featured on a couple of DJ Khalid's songs, but he hasn't put out new music himself. For the last four years, fans have been begging the Canadian to release new music, and a while back Justin revealed why he hasn't been writing or making music. He wanted to focus on his mental health first, but he finally gave us what we wanted. Justin Bieber's new song goes straight to number one in Canada!
It all started 10 days ago when Justin posted a photo with Ed Sheeran in front of a green screen with the caption "10". Fans already speculate everything in his life, but they knew this meant new music. The countdown kept going on and Justin finally revealed a few days back that his new song would be called I Don't Care with Ed Sheeran.
The song was released last night and immediately went to number one in Canada. The exact same thing happened when Avril Lavigne released new music for the first time in 6 years, so we're not surprised at all! If you listen to the song, you'll hear that Justin sings about his mental health.
Fans already think this song is about Hailey Baldwin, as some of the lyrics say, "'Cause I don't care when I'm with my baby, yeah / All the bad things disappear / And you're making me feel like maybe I am somebody / I can deal with the bad nights / When I'm with my baby, yeah". But the song does get a little sadder when Justin sings, "With all these people all around / I'm crippled with anxiety / But I'm told it's where we're s'posed to be".
Justin has been open about his struggles with anxiety and depression for the past couple of months. He wrote a long message about why he wasn't touring or making music in an Instagram post that said:
"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."
However, during a surprise Coachella performance with Ariana Grande, he teased "new album coming soon". If the new album is anything like this new song, then we'll absolutely love it. You can listen to his new song below, but we're patiently waiting for the music video!
