Bieber is currently busy promoting his new album, Purpose. He appeared on NBC's Today show and said the tracks represent his current situation. "It just reflects where I am right now and we're going up," he said. "It's been a long journey but I think I'm in the best place I've ever been.

"A lot of people go through those struggles, but they're not in the public eye. I grew up in the spotlight so it was tough for me, but we're on the other side. I'm 21 and I got a lot of great people surrounding me, a lot of good support systems."
