Global phenomenon Justin Bieber's new album BELIEVE will be released on Tuesday, June 19, featuring newly released hit singles "Boyfriend," "Die in Your Arms," "All Around the World" and "As Long As You Love Me."
Believe follows Justin's first Christmas album UNDER THE MISTLETOE (RBMG/Island Def Jam Music Group) - released in November 2011 - which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200. UNDER THE MISTLETOE was Justin's fifth release since he first arrived on Island Records/RBMG in November 2009 with My World. My World contained his worldwide debut hit, "One Time," the follow-up "One Less Lonely Girl," and two more chart hits, "Love Me" and "Favorite Girl." With that, Justin became the first solo artists in history to send four songs from a debut album into the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100 prior to the album's release.
To date, Justin has amassed more than 15 million in worldwide CD sales, accumulated over 23 million Twitter followers, 44 million Facebook friends and 3 billion combined views on YouTube and VEVO.
