Justin Bieber Releases 6th Studio Album “Justice” With A Powerful Message

Justin Bieber has released his sixth studio album, Justice.

The new Justin Bieber album is now available after months of the singer teasing its singles. The 16-track project titled Justice features guest appearances from the likes of Chance The Rapper, Burna Boy, Khalid, and more. Justin first mentioned Justice in the thick of the racial unrest and police brutality that plagued 2020.

The singer revealed that he hopes to bring some healing with his upcoming album. “In a time when there’s so much wrong with this broken planet, we all crave healing-and justice-for humanity,” Justin said. “In creating this album, my goal is to make music that will provide comfort; to make songs that people can relate to, and connect to, so they feel less alone. Suffering, injustice and pain can leave people feeling helpless.”

Justice has already spawned a number of hits, including “Holy” with Chance The Rapper. “Peaches” with Daniel Caesar and GIVE?N is also already a favorite which Justin released a new music video for when the album was released on Friday. He also gave a riveting performance of the track during his recent session on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert.

Justin earned his second Grammy this year for Best Country Duo/Group Performance for his song “10,000 Hours” with Dan + Shay. Justice follows his fifth studio album Changes, which was also nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album.

Koffee & Di Genius Tastes Grammy Wins On John Lengend’s “Bigger Love”

The people hailing from the musical island of Jamaica had a whole lot to be smiling about on Sunday night when entertainers from the region walked away with a combined lot of awards at the 63rd Annual Grammys.

Naturally, the most talked-about win came from the Best Reggae Album category, where Toots and the Maytals walked away with the coveted win. Their album “Got To Be Tough” was released in August 2020, only weeks before the passing of the group’s leader Toots Hibbert. The project topped the category despite competitions from Higher Place by Skip Marley, Upside Down by Buju Banton, It All Comes Back To Love by Maxi Priest, and One World by The Wailers.

Jamaica also secured a win in the r&b category through John Legend’s album “Bigger Love.” The album was released at the heights of the Covid-19 pandemic and featured work from both Jamaican stars Koffee and producer Di Genius. Koffee found her spot on track number 12, “Don’t Walk Away,” which was produced by Stephen “Di Genius” McGregor. Along with track 12, he also copped producer credits for the album’s title track, “Bigger Love.”

In 2020, Koffee broke barriers when she became the only female and the youngest person to win in the category of Best Reggae Album for her debut EP, Rapture. She is now able to add yet another notch to her belt. While Koffee has remained tight-lipped about the recent accomplishment, Di Genius took to social media to revel in the success.

“Another Win. Super grateful to be a part of this amazing, now Grammy award winning album! Big congrats to the Legend @johnlegend and to everyone involved! To more wins!” He wrote on Instagram. Much like Koffee, this wasn’t Di Genius’ first run at the Grammys.

The decorated producer has secured wins via Damian’ Jr Gong’ Marley’s Stony Hill (Best Reggae Album), and Shakira’s El Dorado (Best Latin Pop Album), both in 2017. The latter also won in the category of Best Contemporary Pop Vocal Album at Latin Grammy Award that year. He has also had numerous other collaborations with other entertainers, including Drake, Mali Music, and Burna Boy.

Both Koffee and Di Genius have been teasing new music. The 21-year-old reggae crooner is currently preparing her debut album, which could mean yet another win is the stars are indeed aligned. The producer recently released “Rotate” by Burna Boy and Becky G.

Koffee Says Her Sophomore Album, “will be really awesome”

Grammy award-winning artiste Koffee is getting ready to drop her sophomore debut album.

The young dancehall hitmaker, who became the first woman and youngest artiste to win the Best Reggae Album, hinted that her album “will be really awesome.” Many would agree that Koffee has her unique signature sound, which has led to her tracks being loved by many, including the former President of the United States, Barrack Obama. In an interview recently with Rolling Stone, the 21-year-old songstress detailed just what she is planning to bring to the table this time around.

“I want to speak of a solution and of a way that we can come together and get along, even when things are going wrong,” Koffee told the publication.

Preaching a message of unity, love, and togetherness, she further said, “Positivity is definitely a theme. It will be a very interesting twist for people who knew my music before, and also for people who will discover me. I think it will be really awesome.”

Even as the artiste gets ready to release her album, she is getting nominated for more awards. Earlier this month, she was among three reggae artistes who were nominated for the 52nd NAACP Image Award, which is organized by the US-based National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. She was nominated in the categories of Outstanding International Collaborations for the track “Pressure,” which was remixed by Buju Banton. The Spanish Town native was also nominated for her summer banger “Lockdown.”

Although the pandemic has put a damper on some of the performances she was slated for last year, she seems to have put her focus on producing more music. Last year she detailed her work on the upcoming album and an interview, she said: “I am doing a little camp right now, that’s just me and some musicians and producers and a few artistes. We just a build a vibes, seeing where that vibe takes us, and hopefully we create magic,” she said in an interview.

As we await the drop of her album, there have been speculations that it could feature Nigerian singer Burna Boy after they were spotted in the studio last February. Koffee has previously worked with rapper Gunna, so there is a possibility of even more international entertainers working on the project. There is also little detail on the exact time of release, although some have speculated that it could be this summer. Until then, we wait to see what the twist will be.

Wale – All Star Break Up Lyrics

Wale – All Star Break Up Lyrics

[Verse 1]
If my pride was aside, I probably would text you first
But, If you could die from a broken heart you would drive a hearse
Cause, every guy that has ever found you attractive and acted on it
Back pedals much after, that’s when you’ve shown your worth
And I heard you love NBA niggas and
Now, you could track how much them niggas make and make rounds
At the All-Star break of day or so by valentine’s
So my advice if shorty doesn’t know the game she gaming y’all
And this valentine’s, dollar signs have you satisfied
The Gold’s Peak add a rollie and fashion nova ad
And that don’t mean to talk to you like a ho cause nah
We both do what we want but if I want you
I must want you bad, right

You might just catch you a spirit, you praying right

[Hook]
I don’t believe in Valentine’s
I don’t believe in Valentine’s
I don’t believe in Valentine’s
I don’t believe in Valentine’s
I don’t believe in

[Verse 2]
Look
Pardon this pessimistic
Message I’m representing
Yes yes, i know this bitch
I mean woman, I was getting reckless
But hol up lemme get one second
I spent so much in Fendi
She know I’m cool with Robyn
She bother me for the Fenty yeah
I’m trying to block the part of my heart that thrives on your affection
You tried the love it’s not enough, it’s cars, it’s money, attention
But, I’m way too flawed to judge you
And I do my part to push you
Father and father from me from my broads and all my problems
She say look ‘le I’m sorry, my plane leaves in the morning
I’m trying to hit some parties, hit Staples for the performances
Maybe I’ll see you Monday, thanks for this box of chocolates and
Roses you hold before me but court seats could get me 40
Thousand likes on my IG, someone I like just invited me
Plus I’m not even wifey, plus you 5’9 he’s a giant no
Baby mama, I might could just make a blog and get popular
Let’s hold a 40 before us but fame and fortune excites me
My valentine

[Outro]
I don’t believe in valentines
I don’t believe in valentines (I heard you love NBA niggas and now)
I don’t believe in valentines (I heard you love NBA niggas and now)
I don’t believe in valentines
You ever lost your main jawn to a point guard or a small forward
I don’t believe in
I find it funny Cupid’s busiest days, four days before the All-Star
It was fun while it lasted
I don’t believe in
