A pop superstar with a catalog full of love songs, Justin Bieber has always been a romantic at heart. Showing love to TikTok, Justin Bieber announces “Journals Live from the drew house,” the first ever single-artist, full-length concert performance to air LIVE on TikTok. Featuring Justin’s first-ever performance of songs from his fan-favorite 2013 album JOURNALS, #JournalsLive airs live from the drew house on Justin’s TikTok account (@justinbieber) at 1pm AEDT on Monday 15 February, re-airing at 6am AEDT on Tuesday 16 February.
Released in 2013 as a groundbreaking digital-only collection of singles, JOURNALS was the companion to Justin’s second full-length documentary feature BELIEVE, and marked a decidedly more mature, R&B-leaning shift in the young star’s output. In the near decade since its release, JOURNALS has amassed three billion streams worldwide, become a fan-favorite among the true Beliebers, and is widely looked upon at some of his best and most personal music to date.
"I’m excited to bring this show to life,” says Justin Bieber. “Journals is one of my favorite projects and I’ve never performed it live. I’m grateful to TikTok for helping me to bring this show to everyone on Valentine’s Day."
With over 19.6 million followers, Justin Bieber is an active member of the TikTok community, using his account to reveal behind-the-scenes footage, partake in the latest trends, and more. His first-ever TikTok, which included a snippet of his hit song “Yummy” (which was a big TikTok hit with over 5 million video creations) generated over 117 million views. Most recently, Justin declared his devotion to his wife Hailey with a stylish video soundtracked by his single “Anyone.” Justin is currently trending worldwide with his Benny Blanco collab “Lonely,” which has over 842k video creations and more than 5 billion video views.\
After closing out 2020 with three smash singles — “Holy,” with Chance The Rapper, “Lonely” with benny blanco, and “Monster” with Shawn Mendes — Justin Bieber rang in the new year with a brand new single “Anyone,” and his return to the live stage in a blow-out NYE livestreamed concert. Justin continues to reign as one of the biggest artists in the world: the #1 artist on YouTube with 60+ million subscribers, the #2 artist on Spotify global with over 65 million monthly listeners, over 200 million in combined U.S. radio audience per week, three tracks in the Billboard Top 40, and three Grammy nominations and an American Music Award for his 2020 album Changes.
#JournalsLive airs at 1pm AEDT on Monday 15 February, re-airing at 6am AEDT on Tuesday 16 February.
