Justin Beiber’s sixth studio album Justice has arrived. Unsurprinsgly, the talent behind the scenes of the project is vaste, from the likes of Jon Bellion, Ryan Tedder, Andrew Watt, Finneas as well as acts from the electronic scene; Skrillex, TroyBoi & Virtual Riot. After being noticed in the studio together back in November, Justin Bieber and Skrillex’s new works are here.
The album also features massive artists such as Khalid, Benny Blanco, Chance The Rapper, The Kid Laroi and Giveon and Daniel Caesar.
The two bass music heavyweights join TroyBoi, who was recently announced as a collaborator on one of the album’s bonus tracks. Both Skrillex and Virtual Riot appear on the opener song; ‘2 Much’. Skrillex was also involved in both ‘Somebody’ and ‘Loved by You’. Skrillex has shifted his focus to behind the scenes work, with 4 credits in 2020 and no lead singles from the talent since 2019. He did feature on Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign’s 2020 team up ‘Ego Death’.
Justice continues Bieber and Skrillex’s advantageous relationship after several hugely successful team ups in the past. Time will tell if these live up to their past works.
In other news regarding the album, Justice, the electronic duo, not the album are taking legal action against Beiber due to the similarities in the album art. Justice have had the cross insignia trademarked since 2008. “Your use of the Mark is illegal,” Justice’s litigitation counsel wrote in the letter. “Bieber’s team emailed us in May of 2020, asking to be looped in with Justice’s graphic designer to discuss a logo,” Justice’s management said in a statement to SPIN. That communication ended abruptly and Justice and co next saw the artwork upon the public announcement.
