Could Justin Bieber Release an Album Before Christmas?

Justin Bieber took to social media late Sunday night (Oct. 27) to tease his upcoming fifth studio album by asking his army of Beliebers for help in reaching a particularly lofty goal. 

"If this gets 20 million likes Justin Bieber will release an album before Christmas," he shared in a typewritten Instagram post on a bright pink background. The star gave further incentive with his caption, writing, "Share it, like it, post in your story, I gotta see the demand 😉 love you guys pumped for it! I'm almost done but your support will make me move faster."

At the same time, Bieber hinted at the sound of the follow-up to 2015's Purpose. "R&BIEBER," the pop star wrote in a second post, signaling a potential pivot into from pop into the realms of R&B on the new, as-yet-untitled album.
