After everyone in the industry roasted him, Justin Bieber is ready to move on and get serious about finishing his upcoming album. The Biebs spoke with USA Today and said that people will be shocked by his new musical direction. Bieber claimed that his next body of work will reflect the changes he’s made over the years and that we’ll be hearing a more “grown up Justin.”
“My whole direction has changed,” said Bieber. “What you are thinking about all the time is what you write, and now that I’m thinking about more positive things, it completely changes my music. I had to re-do my whole [new] album. It was done, but it didn’t match up to where I am now and where my head’s at. I want to tell my story, but I also want to give people hope. I lost hope for a while. I was in a dark place, but it’s about getting out of that rut. It’s about knowing there’s sunshine on the other side.”
Bieber also confirmed that he’s been in the studio with Kanye West and the legendary Rick Rubin. Bieber and West aren’t total strangers since Yeezus remixed the Canadian singer’s 2010 single “Runaway Love” along with Raekwon. However, it will be interesting to hear what Rick Rubin and Bieber come up with. Will you listen to Bieber with the production of these talented producers? Let us know in the comments below.
