Justin Bieber’s “Purpose” Review

November 13, 2015 brought Justin Bieber’s 4th studio album, Purpose, which is co-produced by Skrillex, BLOOD and several other producers. With this album, brought many chart toppers with songs like What Do You Mean?, Sorry, and collaboration with Skrillex and Diplo, Where Are Ü Now.

Purpose, was supposed to be Bieber’s comeback album, and in all honesty, I think that’s exactly what this is. This album gives listeners a point of view from JB’s life in the past few years. From his downward spiral, to on-again off-again relationship with Selena Gomez. It was questioned whether or not Bieber would even be able to make another hit album.

When this album first came out, I will admit, I was not sure if I wanted to listen to it. His last album wasn’t that great and any other songs he released in between were not that impressive. But it took me watching his live performance of Sorry on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, to give the album a shot. Just with the first song, I caught myself nodding along to the song and by the time the chorus rolled around I was already singing it, then I listened to the rest of the album and I was blown away. There are a couple songs I can do without, but I’ll get to that later. Overall, I think this album is what Justin Bieber needed for the ultimate comeback.

As far as a letter grade goes for this album, I will give it a B+.
