Is Justin Bieber's Next Album Coming Before 2019 Is Over?

Is Justin Bieber preparing to give us a great wedding present? The singer, who tied the knot a second time with Hailey Baldwin last week, isn't wasting any time getting back on his music grind.

In an Instagram Live video re-shared by a fan account, Bieber is spotted zooming around a spacious, natural light-filled kitchen on a pair of hover skates contemplating his next professional move as, it seems, Baldwin films a conversation about his rollout strategy. 

"I'm putting out an album this year!" Bieber says enthusiastically, as another voice -- presumably Baldwin's -- asks, "this year meaning... before 2020?," which prompts Bieber to wonder, "Should I put out an album this year?"

That gets Justin thinking: release the album and single in 2019, or tease it and drop the project in 2020?  "Or should I do it this year?" he wonders. "Babe, you already are doing it this year," the camerawoman responds.

"What?" 

"I thought you already were doing it this year," she says, prompting him to re-think it. "You just wanna split it? Album by the end of this year, another song coming out... soon," he replies. 

"I feel like everybody hates when you say soon, because they never know when it's gonna happen," Baldwin says. "Legit, though, this year," he assures her.

No information was available on Bieber's first new studio album since 2015's Purpose at press time. While he's appeared with guest vocals on singles by everyone from Billie Eilish to Ed Sheeran and DJ Khaled over the past year, Bieber hasn't shared much information about his fifth album; a spokesperson for the singer could not be reached for additional information on the album at press time. Back in July, JB promised that he had some "good music coming" and in August he performed a gospel song during a church service and said, "God is pulling me through a hard season."

Bieber is featured on country duo Dan + Shay's brand new single, "10,000 Hours."
