Bieber released his last album, ‘Purpose’, back in 2015, with Scoot Braun teasing, in January, that its follow-up – and the pop star’s fifth album – would arrive in 2019. The release of the collaborative single, ‘I Don’t Care’, comes after Bieber announced he was taking a break to “repair some deep rooted issues”, last month. However, Bieber surprised fans recently by taking to the stage with Ariana Grande at Coachella 2019.
