Justin Bieber closes five-year LP release gap with ‘Changes’ [Stream]10playlist Jumbo

After a trifecta of preluding singles, Justin Bieber’s fifth studio album, Changes, has arrived. Led by the production’s debut showing, “Yummy,” which Bieber promptly followed with the Kehlani-assisted “Get Me,” and Quavo feature, “Intentions,” Changes is the successor to Bieber’s last LP, Purpose, delivered in 2015. Lofty, bubblegum-sweet professions of love pervade Changes, which, from start to finish, arrives as a 17-track jaunt into R&B and pop hybrid territory.

Post Malone, Clever, Lil Dicky, and Travis Scott grace Changes, but otherwise, the vocal reigns rest firmly in the Biebs’ hands as he smoothly assumes sole vocal responsibility for much of the album’s inclusions.

Changes will be supported by a multi-city tour. The complete list of dates is available here

Lil Dicky paid a visit to Ellen DeGenres on April 18 to promote and preview his forthcoming song and accompanying music video, “Earth.” He tells DeGenres that the animated video features a star-studded cast, including the voices of Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, Ed Sheeran, and more.

“It’s all about saving the earth,” Lil Dicky tells DeGenres. “There’s an environmental crisis going on right now. When I started making the song, I didn’t know the facts at hand, but we have 12 years to completely change the way we do so many things on Earth or the damage is irreversible.”

Proceeds from sales of the song will go toward Leonardo DiCaprio’s foundation, which will work with Lil Dicky to help and protect the sustainability of our planet.

“Earth” premieres at midnight Friday, April 19 on YouTube.

Lil Dicky Is Making A Career Out Of Being Charismatic And Problematic In Equal Measure

This post was originally published on this site

It takes real talent to create a song based on the premise that Chris Brown is the man and end up with something likable. For three minutes and 36 seconds — or 5:21 if you’re watching the music video, as more than 57 million people have so far — that’s the illusion “Freaky Friday” successfully … More »
