About Purpose

Purpose is the fourth studio album by Canadian singer, Justin Bieber. It was released on November 13, 2015 by Def Jam Recordings and School Boy Records. It serves as the follow-up to Bieber's third studio album Believe (2012), and it was developed after the release of his compilation Journals (2013), which saw him musically in a more R&B direction. The album was created over a period of two years, in which Bieber struggled to find a musical direction for recording, scrapping each of the tracks on the album many times. Bieber has stated that the sound and the lyrical content of the album were heavily inspired by Chris Brown's 2012 album Fortune. The album features guest vocals from Travis Scott, Big Sean, Halsey and Nas, with production help from the likes of Skrillex and Diplo. With the help of his personal friend and frequent musical collaborator Jason Boyd, Bieber started writing and recording with the idea of making an inspirational album that could encourage people through uplifting messages. This was during a period in his life of media scrutiny due to his involvement in various misdemeanours and his relationship with American actress, singer, and former girlfriend Selena Gomez.
