Justin Bieber’s Next Album ‘Believe’ Rumored to Drop in Summer 2012
The release of Justin Bieber‘s holiday album is just one week away, but the world is already looking forward to the teen pop star’s next studio effort. His manager, Scooter Braun, says that Bieber’s ‘Believe’ album could hit stores by the summer of 2012.
Bieber confirmed the album title via Twitvid earlier this month. Braun says Justin is heavily involved with the new material. “He’s pretty adamant about writing a lot of [the album],” Braun says. “And he played me some stuff that he’s been doing on his own. He wrote this amazing song that sounds like a Jodeci record. I’m really excited for him. This kid can sing his a— off. He’s coming into his own.”
Justin previously said of his next album, “I want to find something that’s going to suit me and my fans are going to love and older people will like and younger people will like … I’m going to mature; I’m going to evolve. I don’t feel like I’m going to do it too fast or too slow: I’m going to do it at the pace that I feel comfortable doing it.”
When it arrives, ‘Believe’ will be the proper follow-up to ‘My World 2.0.’ The compilation album ‘Never Say Never: The Remixes’ hit No. 1 earlier this year. ‘Under the Mistletoe,’ Bieber’s Christmas album, hits retailers on Nov. 1 and includes collaborations with Usher, Mariah Carey, Boyz II Men and Busta Rhymes.
