Justin Bieber posted a teaser image for his upcoming single, “Hold On,” on Monday (March 1) in which the singer sits astride a black motorcycle at night. In the pic, a helmeted Bieber is decked out in a white hoodie, jacket, jeans and untied black boots on a mostly empty street with the title of the song scrawled in green letters next to him.
The post reads, “Hold On. Friday,” confirming that the next single from his upcoming Justice album will be out Friday. Bieber shared a similar image on his Instagram stories, with the song title and “March 5” appearing across the snap, and linking off to the pre-save page for Justice.
At press time, no additional information was available about the song, which the singer teased just days after announcing the name of his sixth studio album, which is slated for a March 19 release.
The collection will feature his collaboration with Chance the Rapper on “Holy,” as well as the Benny Blanco-featuring “Lonely” and “Anyone,” all of which are still in the top 40 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart. “In a time when there’s so much wrong with this broken planet, we all crave healing — and justice — for humanity,” said Bieber in a statement announcing the album.
“In creating this album, my goal is to make music that will provide comfort; to make songs that people can relate to, and connect to, so they feel less alone. Suffering, injustice and pain can leave people feeling helpless. Music is a great way of reminding each other that we aren’t alone. Music can be a way to relate to one another and connect with one another. I know that I cannot simply solve injustice by making music, but I do know that if we all do our part by using our gifts to serve this planet, and each other, that we are that much closer to being united. This is me doing a small part. My part. I want to continue the conversation of what justice looks like so we can continue to heal.”
Bieber also took some time out on Monday to wish himself a happy 27th birthday by posting a cute baby pic featuring the caption, “Baby me 27 years ago.” The snap got plenty of response from his pals, including Kylie Jenner, Stranger Things‘ Millie Bobby Brown and stepmom Chelsey Bieber.
Justice is the follow-up to the singer’s Grammy-nominated 2020 album Changes.
