His comeback is already off to a strong start. The first single, “What Do You Mean?” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming his first song to top the chart.
Bieber has worked with Skrillex, Kanye West, and Rick Rubin on the follow-up to 2012’s Believe. “It’s really uplifting, clear, poppy, but cool,” he told Ryan Seacrest. “The sounds are super expensive. Skrillex is a genius. He’s super futuristic and I just love his sound. So to be able to incorporate that sound with what I’m doing has been super cool because it’s new and fresh. I feel like no one has done it before. I’m very excited.”
Purpose is set for a Nov. 13 release.
