Things may be a little bad for Justin Bieber these days. The pop megastar has been coming under constant fire for his penchant for brothels, tagging walls with questionable graffiti and storming off stage. However, despite the controversies, he maintains that he isn't "All Bad," and he's about to prove it in song. Yesterday (Nov. 9), Bieber revealed the title and single artwork for his sixth Music Mondays/music journals single, "All Bad."
Revealed much later than usual due to his international schedule, Bieber posted the artwork on his Instagram. Unlike last week's offering, "Bad Day," "All Bad" returns to the all-purple motif of earlier Music Mondays single. A simple frown emoticon is in the center of the image, with Bieber's name and the song title in light gray font at the top and bottom of the cover.
Earlier today (Nov. 10), Bieber further hinted at the meaning of the song, writing "I ain't all bad #journals" alongside the Sunday midnight release date for the new song.
Thus far, Bieber's music journals tracks, such as "Heartbreaker," "All That Matters" and "Bad Day" have featured revelatory, personal lyrics. The tracks have tackled issues close to Bieber's heart, from his public persona to his very public breakup with Stars Dance singer Selena Gomez. Meanwhile, the music itself has been markedly grown up for Bieber, largely featuring stripped down, R&B inspired instrumentation and deeper vocals from the growing singer.
It seems as though "Bad Day" will now follow in those steps.
The song will be released tonight at midnight. Though if other releases are any indication, Beliebers can expect the song slightly before that time, in the 11 p.m. EST hour.
