Bieber has been apologizing a lot this year.
Justin Bieber’s comeback LP Purpose is just a few weeks away, and he’s hammering home the redemptive nature of his return to prominence with a new single called “Sorry.” The song was co-written and produced by Skrillex and Blood Diamonds, among others, and it has the same laid-back, tropical feel that propelled “What Do You Mean?” to #1 on the Billboard charts a few weeks ago. It also has the same kind of alien, wordless hook that made earlier Skrillex collaboration “Where Are U Now” a hit earlier this year.
Who is he singing to when he says, “Is it too late to say sorry?” His fans? Everyone on the internet who saw his nudes? and “Cause I’m missing more than just your body“, as you might expect, the song has people speculating that it is intended for ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez. Definitely she might deserve an apology. But honestly not just her:
And if you’ve found yourself apologizing to loved ones for your inability to stop singing “What Do You Mean” and “Where Are U Now”… it’s not too late to say sorry for this one.
Stay tuned for Bieber’s new album Purpose, out Nov. 13.
