Celebrities And Fans React To Justin Bieber’s Album ‘Justice’

Celebrities from Kendall Jenner to Tana Mongeau are all raving about Justin Bieber’s new album Justice, and we have all the best reactions!

If you didn’t have Bieber Fever before, you probably have a bad case of it now. Justin Bieber released his long awaited 6th studio album, Justice, on Friday, and he did not disappoint. Along with the release of the album, Bieber also dropped the vibey music video for his single “Peaches” featuring Daniel Caesar and Giveon. If it wasn’t already a known fact, now everyone knows that Justin Bieber can rock a suit—especially a monochromatic peach suit.

After spending the past year in the studio perfecting his album, Bieber made sure that Justice had “something for everyone” to listen to. The album includes 16 songs, with 3 exclusive tracks “Redeye,” “Angels Speak,” and “Hailey” sold separately as CDs at Target and Walmart. The first half of the album consists of romantic love ballads, deep emotional songs, and relaxed beats. The second half sounds almost like a different album, switching over to stylistic pop jams, upbeat dance hits with an 80s feel, and even a swanky R&B bop.

This album is different from anything Bieber has released in the past—showcasing his growth in terms of the sound of his music and the purpose behind it. He stated that the objective of Justice was to “provide comfort to the listener” and to “provide another outlet of connectivity” as many people have been feeling isolated. One of the most distinguishable sounds on the album is the voice of Martin Luther King Jr. Yes you heard it right, MLK, the leader of the American civil rights movement. Bieber went to the MLK estate to get clearance for the use of the audio recordings on his album. A clip from King’s 1963 “Letter From a Birmingham Jail” was used in the opening track “2 Much” while a clip from King’s 1967 sermon at the Ebenezer Baptist Church was used midway through the album in the “MLK Interlude.” Bernice King, the daughter of Martin Luther King Jr., thanked Bieber in a tweet for supporting and honoring her father’s work.

Justice is full of stylistic surprises, many of which have left celebrities and fans in awe of the 27-year-old musician. Celebrities like Kendall Jenner, Alessia Cara, Benny Blanco, and Demi Lovato took to their instagram stories to share their favorite songs from the album, while many other celebs took to Twitter to celebrate with Bieber. Here are some of their reactions:

Beliebers also had lots to praise about the album and have been blowing up Twitter since its release.

Following the release of Justice, the album quickly reached number one on the US iTunes Album chart. Congrats on the success Justin, we can’t wait for what’s to come next!
