Justin Bieber Releases New Track, “Love Yourself,” Co-Written With Ed Sheeran
Yesterday, Bieber called into Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 radio show on Apple Music to share the track with listeners tuning in. With previous new tracks like “What Do You Mean?” and “Sorry” having an EDM-infused approach due to production contributions from Skrillex, “Love Yourself” consists only of Bieber’s vocals and a clean sounding electric guitar. Co-written with Ed Sheeran, the track may have a pretty sound but the lyrics are ironic to what the song title may insist.
Lyrics like “You think you broke my heart, oh girl for goodness sake / You think I’m crying on my own, well I ain’t” and “And if you think that I’m still holdin’ on to somethin’ / You should go and love yourself” show that Bieber is not in love with someone anymore and is in doubts of ever being in contact with that person. Bieber recently told Ellen DeGeneres that three love songs were written on the album about his ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez. So it is unclear who the song is about but it is destined to be a hit when the album drops on Friday.
