Justin Bieber has shared a new single, ‘Hold On’ from his forthcoming album Justice. It comes with a music video certain to hit you in the feels too.
With lyrics like, “I need you to hold on / Heaven is a place not too far away” it’s no surprise that the ‘Hold On’ video is an emotional one.
The beginning of the clip shows Bieber racing through the streets on a motorbike as he’s being chased by police.
We’re then taken into a flashback. Justin Bieber sits with his partner, played by Christine Ko, as she receives a cancer diagnosis.
It shows the couple struggle with the financial strain of the treatments before Bieber holds a garage sale. It builds until he robs a bank with a spray painted water gun.
Chatting to Jason Kennedy as the song premiered, Justin Bieber said of the song, “A lot of us, I think, want to give up at times.”
“We want to let go and give up, but I think the message is just hold on. There’s a lot to look forward to and there’s a lot that we can’t control, but there is hope and holding on to that is something that I like to do.”
Justin Bieber’s sixth studio album, Justice will arrive Friday, 19th March.
