While fans anxiously await to hear "Sorry," they were treated to a leak of another new song over the weekend, which features Bieber's ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez. The song is believed to be called "Strong." The two sound like they're addressing their past relationship in the single as they both sing about wishing they were better with things, saying they "gotta be strong." The song can be heard here.
On Aug. 30, Bieber released the first single off "Purpose" called "What Do You Mean?" "What Do You Mean?" reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, which was the first time in his career he's had a No. 1 single on that chart. When you preorder "Purpose" you can now get a remix of the song that features Ariana Grande.
