Diehard fans of Justin Bieber have been not-so-patiently waiting for his next album to drop since he released Purpose back in 2015. Over the last few months, the 24-year-old pop star and his manager Scooter Braun have hinted that something was in the works, but details were slim. Now, however, we know that the “Sorry” singer has something coming next month, and we couldn’t be more excited!
ICYMI, an announcement hit Twitter on Friday, January 11, about JB’s upcoming compilation album, titled The Best. The LP, which will drop on February 27, will celebrate his decade-long career and will feature some of his greatest hits.

Of course, Beliebers everywhere are freaking out over the news, and many even took to Twitter to share their excitement for the “No Brainer” crooner’s upcoming release — even if it’s just a collection of songs they’ve already heard before.
King of having a lot of hits with just 4 albums

Inevitably, there were also a ton of people on Twitter who were disappointed with the news. Why? Well, because they wanted a new LP full of brand new songs, and TBH, we feel that.

Don’t worry, though! It seems like we might be getting some new music after all. How do we know? Well, on January 12, Jason Torres, the CEO of a brand called 21 Grand, posted an Instagram photo of him and JB, and he hinted at new music in the caption.

Guess we’re just going to have to see how this one plays out, but at least it seems like we’ll be getting some new music. What a relief!
