Bieber’s New Album Climbs the Charts

Jamie Cohen, Reporter

Pop sensation Justin Bieber is climbing the charts while getting comfortable in that No. 2 spot behind British star, Adele, on itunes. With nearly three years in the making, “Purpose” finally hit the media on November 13th, leaving beliebers relieved that the wait that felt like a lifetime is over. Immediate reviews left Bieber trending all over twitter.

The Biebs kicks off his album with “Mark My Words” which sets the tone and theme for the rest of the album, with a simple, light beat. Skrillex, an EDM producer and DJ, was a co-producer on several tracks including “I’ll Show You,” “Children,” “What Do You Mean,” “Sorry,” and “Where are Ü Now.” The Ed Sheeran Co-written “Love Yourself” shows off the range of Biebers tone from a high falsetto to the more lower regions. Similarly Justin Bieber boasts his voice in “Life is Worth Living,” a piano melody that does not make you want to get up and dance, like the other tracks, but instead enjoy the soothing sound of his voice.

“Justin is really attracting fans with his new album, compared to last year when I was not a huge fan of his, now I jam out to Sorry before a big game, or a night out with my friends” Julia Fazio, a junior said about Bieber’s comeback.
Bieber will start off his 58-show world tour on March 9, 2016. The tour runs through July 18. If you’re thinking about coming out to one of his shows next year, on May 4 and 5 where he will be rocking the stage in Brooklyn, NY @ Barclays center, and closing his “Purpose” tour July 18 in New York City, NY @ Madison Square Garden.
