– Pokušavao sam da otkrijem šta me muči, poput većine među vama. Sada sam se odlučio da se fokusiram na rešavanje nekih dubokih psihičkih problema koji me muče kako se ne bih raspao, kako bih sačuvao svoj brak i postao otac kakvim želim biti – napisao je Biber na Instagramu.

U novembru prošle godine pevač se venčao s američkom manekenkom Hejli Boldvin.

– Muzika mi je vrlo važna, ali ništa ne sme stati ispred porodice i mog zdravlja – rekao je još krajem 2018.

Rekao je da “to ne znači da odustaje od muzike”.

– Plaćali ste ulaznice kako biste me videli i proveli se kao nikada u životu, ali ja nisam bio emocionalno sposoban da vam pružim makar malo zadovoljstva, naročito krajem zadnje turneje – napisao je.

So I read a lot of messages saying you want an album .. I’ve toured my whole teenage life, and early 20s, I realized and as you guys probably saw I was unhappy last tour and I don’t deserve that and you don’t deserve that, you pay money to come and have a lively energetic fun light concert and I was unable emotionally to give you that near the end of the tour. I have been looking, seeking, trial and error as most of us do, I am now very focused on repairing some of the deep rooted issues that I have as most of us have, so that I don’t fall apart, so that I can sustain my marriage and be the father I want to be. Music is very important to me but Nothing comes before my family and my health. I will come with a kick ass album ASAP, my swag is undeniable and my drive is indescribable his love is supernatural his grace is that reliable…. the top is where I reside period whether I make music or not the king said so. 👑 but I will come with a vengeance believe that.. (grammar and punctuation will be terrible pretend it’s a text where u just don’t care).

Četvrti album “Purpose” objavio je 2015. i krenuo na svetsku turneju. Ali ona je prekinuta, a 15 koncerata nije održano zbog, kako se pisalo, pevačeve depresije i iscrpljenosti.

Biber je ukupno u svetu prodao oko 150 miliona albuma, a samo u Americi oko 45 miliona albuma i singlova.
