'My break is for a reason," the Biebs posted, alluding to new music coming next year.
Justin Bieber, one of pop's most prolific artists between his 2009 arrival and 2013's Journals, essentially took 2014 off as a recording artist, with only a few featured tracks and remixes highlighting his studio output. That hiatus will likely end in 2015, according to a few recent Instagram posts from the Biebs and his longtime manager, Scooter Braun.
"My break is for a reason. U will soon see 🙂 thank u for your patience," Bieber posted as an Instagram caption on Saturday (Dec. 27), with a photo that has garnered 1 million likes on the platform. Two days later, Braun tagged Bieber in an Instagram photo that labeled 2013 as "Practice," 2014 as "The Warm Up" and 2015 as "Game Time." It's likely Braun was referencing Bieber's musical output and not his improving skateboarding skills… unless 2015 will see the Biebs competing in the X Games?
