Justin Bieber has granted only one major interview for the Jan. 29 release of his new album Believe Acoustic. Billboard got it. In his fourth cover story for us, Bieber opens up about:
• What a fifth No. 1 album would mean to him
• How he really feels about being snubbed by the Grammys
• A look at the chart milestones Acoustic might reach
• Plans for his next album and whether he wants to do more acting
… And a whole lot more.
Also in the issue — the second since the magazine relaunched — there’s a five-page EDM package lookin at the hottest clubs, DJs, albums and more; an analysis of Sony/ATV’s groundbreaking deal with Pandora; a detailed look at ticket-pricing strategies and why less-expensive tickets can make or break a show; a Q&A with Big Machine chief Scott Borchetta and much, much more.
