Justin Bieber Teases Songs That May or May Not Be About God, Selena Gomez
Case in point: Bieber's two latest Instagram posts, both revealing snippets of new material.
In one song, Bieber -- a vocal Christian since his early days -- sings lyrics that could indicate a more heavenly direction for pop's bad boy. "How do lives become lighter? How do your eyes become brighter? Gotta believe in something higher," he sings. On the other track, Bieber is back in the secular world. "How do I wake up in the morning and you're not right next to me. How did we throw it all away?" he croons to Selana Gomez a past lover. Bieber is expected to release his first new album since 2013's Journals this year.
