Justin Bieber has come through with another single off his upcoming album, Purpose, which drops on November 13. The new song, "I'll Show You," is another collaboration with EDM producer Skrillex, following "Sorry," the "dance video" to which has amassed almost 60 million YouTube views after being released just over a week ago. The background chirps and synths on "I'll Show You" can be immediately attributed to Skrillex, though like "Sorry," the production is softly built around Bieber's vocals, which are the main focus. Skrillex is listed as a contributor on 5 tracks on Purpose.
"I'll Show You" finds Bieber getting vulnerable, singing about how, as his life is constantly being recorded, "they forget that I'm real." The new single comes a couple of days after Bieber decided to remix Drake's "Hotline Bling." The promotional rollout approaching Purpose has been expertly coordinated thus far.
Who's gonna be purchasing Purpose on November 13?
My life is a movie, and everyone's watching
So let's get to the good part, and past all the nonsense
Sometimes it's hard to do the right thing
When the pressure's coming down like lightning
It's like they want me to be perfect
When they don't even know that I'm hurting
