As previously documented, Justin Bieber enjoyed quite a 2014, despite the fact that he barely released any new music.
But it looks very much like that will change in the months ahead.
Earlier this week, Justin’s manager and good friend, Scooter Braun, got fans excited via an Instagram message that read:
"2013 was practice… 2014 was the warm up… 2015 is game time."
As seen here, meanwhile, Bieber has been spending a lot of recent time in the studio.
“People in Justin’s close circle - like Usher and the others that make money off of him - are really hoping that in 2015, Justin will use his relationship with [Selena Gomez] to make an amazing album,” a source tells Hollywood Life.
Just a few weeks, of course, Gomez released "The Heart Wants What It Wants," an anthem she admitted was written with Bieber - and the couple's rocky relationship - in mind.
According to Hollywood Life, those close to Bieber are encouraging him to go a similar route on his upcoming album.
“They are urging him to write down his feelings and turn them into hit records," the insider says. "Look at all the amazing songs that have come from lost love, like Justin Timberlake’s ‘Cry Me A River.’
"Everyone close to Justin thinks it’s best to move on and remember the good times, but use the bad times as a career enhancer.”
What do you think, Beliebers? Are you excited for a new album? Do you hope Justin follows the advice of his entourage and pours his adorable heart out in song?
