Justin Bieber surprised fans Sunday when he released Freedom, a gospel-themed EP, at 6:00 p.m. on Easter. The singer announced the EP’s arrival with a brief post on Instagram: “Freedom on all platforms.”
The EP includes six songs: Freedom featuring Beam, All She Wrote (featuring Brandon Love and Chandler Moore), We’re in This Together, Where You Go I Follow (featuring Pink Sweats, Chandler Moore and Judah Smith), Where Do I Fit In (featuring Tori Kelly, Chandler Moore, and Judah Smith) and Afraid to Say (featuring Lauren Walters).
Freedom follows the release of Justice, Bieber’s sixth studio album, which arrived last month. Along with Bieber topping the Rolling Stone Artists 500 chart, Justice landed at Number One on the Top 200 albums chart while the track Peaches arrived at Number One on the Top 100 Songs chart, making Bieber the first artist to rule all three major charts since Ariana Grande last October. The LP follows his 2020 album Changes.
Last week, Bieber addressed the controversy surrounding his use of a Martin Luther King, Jr. sample on Justice. “I want to keep growing and learning about just all social injustices and what it looks like for me to be better, what it looks like for my friends to be better,” he wrote as part of a longer statement. “And I know I have a long way to go.”
In related news, a Hollywood club terminated one of its members after they spilled details about singer Justin Bieber visiting the said club.
According to Page Six, a guest had tipped off photographers that the Yummy singer and his wife Hailey Baldwin were at the famed club last week.
The club is known for preserving privacy and has strict rules against the use of cell phones, photos and other devices.
