In a 12 second video which he posted on Twitter, Justin Bieber said:
“Hi, so I’ve got big news. You can finally go on iTunes to get my Preorder to my album or pre-order my album. But you wanna phrase it, it doesn’t matter. Now my point is, just get the preorder.”
He ended the video with a big smile on his face.
Those who will pre-order “Purpose” now will get an exclusive remix of “What Do You Mean” featuring Ariana Grande.
“Purpose” is considered the comeback album for Justin Bieber, whose last album “Journals” was released two years ago.
“Journals” was a compilation album and was made only as a digital download on iTunes.
For the past few years, Justin Bieber has been hounded by issues about his rowdy behavior on several instances. But this year, he has been trying to mend his badly battered image.
Fans were thrilled at the announcement and were delighted that the album is just $12.99.
They said that the pricing is very cheap, considering that the album has 19 tracks.
“Purpose” includes Justin Bieber’s latest hit single “What do You Mean”.
