Justin Bieber's Purpose arrives on Friday, so the singer unveiled more new music today with help from Apple's Beats 1 Radio. On Twitter, Bieber announced that "Love Yourself" would be today's World Record. But in an interview with Zane Lowe, the singer appeared to call an audible, asking Lowe to play "The Feeling" as well. Bieber originally previewed a snippet of that track, a duet with Halsey, last Friday.
"Love Yourself" is co-written by the English troubadour Ed Sheeran, who also produced the track along with Benny Blanco. It's a soft acoustic ballad—very Ed Sheeran—but it's full of cutting sentiments: My mama don't like you and she likes everyone.
"I just want to be myself and create awesome music," Bieber told his host, Zane Lowe. "I'm growing up." Read about the strategic evolution of Bieber's sound.
