Justin Bieber recently hinted that he may be releasing an album in 2015. Bieber has yet to make an official statement, but he has dropped a few hints. A few days ago, MTV messaged Bieber asking him to release an album in 2015; Bieber replied “no problem” to the message. The 20 year old pop sensation has also been in the recording studio a lot last year, and now it seems it may have been for a legitimate reason. Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun, posted the following message on social media, “2013 was practice…2014 was the warm up…2015 is game time.” The post was directed at his artist, and it was also accompanied by Justin Bieber’s picture. 

Although no other specifics about the possible album have been announced, fans are wondering if the album will include songs about his relationship with Selena Gomez. According to a number of sources, Usher and others are encouraging Bieber to write down his feelings, and turn them into hit records. Songs relating to recording artists’ high profile breakups or heartbreak have proven to be very successful and well-received by fans.

Taylor Swift‘s “White Horse” is about an unfaithful boyfriend who breaks her heart. In 2008, “White Horse” won 2 Grammy Awards for Best Female Country Vocal Performance and Best Country Song. Although Taylor Swift never said who the record was written about, there is speculation the song is about Joe Jonas. Justin Timberlake’s high profile relationship with Britney Spears, ended rather controversially over 10 years ago. It is rumored that Britney Spears cheated on Timberlake with her choreographer. Justin Timberlake‘s breakup song, “Cry Me A River,” is believed to be inspired by Britney Spears. The song won Timberlake a Grammy Award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance. “Cry Me A River also peaked at Number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100. 

Justin Bieber’s relationship with Selena has been a huge topic, ever since the young couple started dating in 2010. Selena Gomez’s recent music video, “The Heart Wants What It Wants,” sparked the notion that the music video and song were directed at Justin Bieber. The song has been certified gold in the US; a gold certification indicates the song has sold 500,000 copies. Whether Justin Bieber decides to include songs about Selena Gomez on his new album or not, it seems his fans will stand by him no matter what he does.
