Just before 9 p.m. pacific on Saturday, Justin Bieber unexpectedly dropped the new heartfelt slow-jam “Hard2FaceReality” (featuring Pooh Bear) to his millions of followers on Twitter.

The two-minute track follows a troubling week for the Canadian pop star, who on Wednesday apologized to people he offended by visiting Japan's Yasukuni war shrine during a recent visit. The following day upon his return home from Japan, Bieber was detained for questioning at LAX.
Within two hours of tweeting the SoundCloud link to “Hard2FaceReality,” Bieber’s message to his more than 51 million followers had already received 21,000 retweets. In the romantic tune — which could be about his on-and-off-again girlfriend Selena Gomez — Bieber croons that “it’s hard to face reality, even though you might get mad at me.”
