On the song Justin sings, “I’m elated that you are my lady”, clearly referring to his wife Hailey, who he described ahead of the song’s release as his Christmas “gift”.
In the short film released before Christmas, Bieber said: “I feel like this is different from previous albums just because of where I am in my life. I’m excited to perform on the tour. As humans, we are imperfect. My past, my mistakes, all the things I have been through. I believe I am right where I am supposed to be and God has me right where he wants me.”

Bieber has not announced the release date for his new album yet. He will embark on a US tour in support of the album between May and September 2020, but no UK dates have yet been announced.
