Justin Bieber announced on Instagram that he will be taking a break from music. A lot of his fans have been requesting for a new album, but Justin admits that he needs this time to work on himself and his family first.
“I’ve toured my whole teenage life and early 20s. I realized and as you guys probably saw I was unhappy [during my] last tour and I don’t deserve that and you don’t deserve that. You pay money to come and have a lively energetic fun light concert and I was unable emotionally to give you that near the end of the tour,” he explained. Justin said that he’s focused on repairing deeply rooted issues, “so that I don’t fall apart, so I can sustain my marriage, and be the father I want to be.”
But this doesn’t mean he’s bidding farewell to his music. “Music is very important to me, but nothing comes before my family and my health. I will come with a kickass album ASAP, my swag is undeniable, and my drive is indescribable.”

So I read a lot of messages saying you want an album .. I’ve toured my whole teenage life, and early 20s, I realized and as you guys probably saw I was unhappy last tour and I don’t deserve that and you don’t deserve that, you pay money to come and have a lively energetic fun light concert and I was unable emotionally to give you that near the end of the tour. I have been looking, seeking, trial and error as most of us do, I am now very focused on repairing some of the deep rooted issues that I have as most of us have, so that I don’t fall apart, so that I can sustain my marriage and be the father I want to be. Music is very important to me but Nothing comes before my family and my health. I will come with a kick ass album ASAP, my swag is undeniable and my drive is indescribable his love is supernatural his grace is that reliable…. the top is where I reside period whether I make music or not the king said so. 👑 but I will come with a vengeance believe that.. (grammar and punctuation will be terrible pretend it’s a text where u just don’t care).
His wife Hailey Baldwin supports this decision and even commented on his page, “That’s right! 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼😭❤️❤️ Love you so much it hurts.” Even DJ Khaled posted a 🙏🏽 emoji to support.
Justin sets a good example and reminder that it’s okay to take a step back when you need it, don’t give in to the pressure to always be busy. Take the time for yourself and your mental health, because it’s important.
We’ll definitely look forward to Justin’s album in the future, but for now we wish him and his family well. And those future kids he hinted on? We’re excited too.
