Justin Bieber Journals on 2LP
Available on Vinyl for the First Time!
Fresh off the chart-topping debut of his fourth studio album, Purpose, RBMG/Def Jam Recordings artist Justin Bieber will see his first four releases – the My World EP (2009), My World 2.0 (2010), Believe (2012) and the previously digital-only compilation Journals (2013) - released on vinyl for the very first time through Universal Music Enterprises (UMe) in February 2016.
Journals was a digital-only compilation of tracks which came out in December 2013, and is only now available in physical form on double vinyl LP. Bieber preceded its release with a 10-week digital download campaign, "Music Mondays," in which he released a new song every Monday night. Aside from these tracks, Journals includes five previously unreleased songs recorded while the singer was on his Believe tour between 2012 and 2013.
Journals found Bieber working with a variety of R&B producers, including The Audibles, Jason "Poo Bear" Boyd, Andre Harris, Cali The Producer, D.K. the Punisher, Soundz, Chief Tone, T-Minus, Maejor Ali, Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins and Sir Nolan, while collaborating with hip-hop icons, Future, R. Kelly, Chance the Rapper, Big Sean and Lil Wayne. The album was not submitted for sales tracking, so it never did chart in Billboard, but has reportedly sold 1,500,000 copies to date.
Released singles included "Heartbreaker" (#13 U.S.), "All That Matters" (#24) and the gold "Confident," featuring Chance the Rapper (#41). Journals would be the last album release from Bieber until his current comeback Purpose, which itself followed the breakthrough Skrillex/Diplo collaboration, "What Do You Mean?"
