Purpose is the fourth studio album by Canadian singer and songwriter 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 collection Journals (2013), which saw him in a more R&B direction. Working on the album over a period of two years, Bieber has struggled to find a musical direction for recording and scrapping each of these tracks many times.

  • Purpose is the fourth studio album by Canadian singer and songwriter 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 collection Journals (2013), which saw him in a more R&B direction. Working on the album over a period of two years, Bieber has struggled to find a musical direction for recording and scrapping each of these tracks many times. With the help of his personal friend and frequent collaborator Jason Boyd, Bieber started writing and recording with the idea of making an inspirational album that could encourage people through uplifting these messages during a period of all his media scrutiny and his involvement in various misdemeanours; as well as his relationship with his former girlfriend Selena Gomez. While working with producer Skrillex, who has also been working along with his then-partner Diplo into their project Jack Ü, releasing their top 10 single "Where Are Ü Now" (2015), featuring Bieber's vocals, Bieber found the record's sonic direction and worked with Skrillex on a handful of the album's songs. Purpose was described as a mix of dance-pop and EDM music as well as including influences of tropical house in some tracks and live instruments such as acoustic guitars in some others, while lyrically addressing subjects such as apologies and faith. The album received generally favorable reviews from most critics, who praised the consistent sound, noted his artistic growth and deemed it to be his best album to date. Other critics, however, criticized its lyrical content, noted that the album focused excessively on his requests for apologies, and found him tiring. The album debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200, selling 522,000 copies in its first week of release, giving Bieber the largest first-week sales of his career and his sixth number-one album in the United States. Elsewhere, it reached the top of the charts in other eleven countries. Four singles have been released from the album so far: "What Do You Mean?", "Sorry", "Love Yourself" and "Company". The first three singles reached number one on both the US Billboard Hot 100 and the UK Singles Chart, where the singer broke chart records, and in other countries. To promote the album, Bieber gave several televised interviews and performances, as well as releasing "dance videos" for all of the album's tracks in a project called "Purpose: The Movement". He also embarked on his Purpose World Tour in 2016. According to the IFPI, Purpose was the fourth best-selling album of 2015 with worldwide sales of 3.1 million copies. As of June 2016, it had sold 4.5 million copies globally. (en)
