What an exciting performance from Justin Bieber! The Canadian singer closed out the Billboard Hot 100 festival with a stellar set! From ‘As Long As You Love Me’ to ‘Boyfriend,’ JB sang some of his popular songs and even sang his latest hit ‘Where Are Ü Now’ — shirtless!
Justin Bieber, 21, set the bar pretty high for future Billboard Hot 100 Festival performers. The singer rocked the stage at the inaugural Billboard music festival on Aug. 23 at Nikon at Jones Beach Theater. Justin performed a few crowd favorites and closed out his set with “Where Are Ü Now!”
Skateboard tricks, high powered performances, and a few acoustic songs thrown into the mix? Now that’s how you close out a music festival! Justin put on quite the performance for those who attended the Billboard Hot 100 Festival on Aug. 23. Although the singer had a few audio problems, he managed to rock the crowd during his performances of “Boyfriend” and “As Long As You Love Me.” Near the end of his set, Justin slowed things down with a couple of acoustic songs and when it was time to end the show, he performed “Where Are Ü Now” with Skrillex, 27, and took his shirt off! Hot.
It’s nice to see Justin back on stage and getting into the swing of things! Since the beginning of August, Justin has been teasing his fans by counting down the days to his next single, “What Do You Mean?” Even though the song isn’t even here yet, the upcoming track came in at No. 4 on the Billboard + Twitter Top Tracks on Aug. 15, according to Billboard. It’s pretty unusual, unheard of, and super impressive for a song that hasn’t been released yet to even top the social chart! The chart is a compiled ranking of the week’s most shared and/or mentioned songs on Twitter in the United States and is measured by shares through a weeklong period.
Justin’s New Album Comes Out On Friday The 13th?
The 21-year-old singer has been teasing fans long enough! Justin has repeatedly said he’s releasing new music in 2015 and now that the year is basically halfway over, when will fans finally get to hear more new music? Well, a report by Billboard is saying JB is keeping his promise by dropping a new, full-length album on Friday, Nov. 13th. Kinda, spooky, right? No official word from Justin’s camp just yet. So it’s not for certain that’s the date, but it’s looking promising!
Tell us, HollywoodLifers! Are you excited for Justin’s new album??
