Purpose is the fourth studio album by Canadian singer and songwriter Justin Bieber. It was released on November 13, 2015, by Def Jam Recordings and School Boy Records. It serves as the follow-up to Bieber's third studio album Believe (2012), and it was developed after the release of his collection Journals (2013), which saw him in a more R&B direction. The album was created over a period of two years, in which Bieber struggled to find a musical direction for recording, scrapping each of these tracks many times.The album features guest vocals from Travis Scott, Big Sean & Halsey, and production help from Skrillex & Diplo. With the help of his personal friend and frequent collaborator Jason Boyd, Bieber started writing and recording with the idea of making an inspirational album that could encourage people through uplifting these messages during a period of all his media scrutiny and his involvement in various misdemeanours; as well as his relationship with his former girlfriend Selena Gomez.
While working with producer Skrillex, who has also been working along with his then-partner Diplo into their project Jack Ü, releasing their top 10 single "Where Are Ü Now" (2015), featuring Bieber's vocals, Bieber found the record's sonic direction and worked with Skrillex on a handful of the album's songs. Purpose was described as a mix of dance-pop and EDM music as well as including influences of tropical house in some tracks and live instruments such as acoustic guitars in some others, while lyrically addressing subjects such as apologies and faith. The album received generally favorable reviews from most critics, who praised its sound and deemed it his best album to date. Other critics, however, criticized its lyrical content, felt that the album focused excessively on his requests for apologies, and found him tiring.
The album debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200, selling 522,000 copies in its first week of release, giving Bieber the largest first-week sales of his career and his sixth number-one album in the United States.

He also embarked on his Purpose World Tour in 2016. According to the IFPI, Purpose was the fourth best-selling album of 2015 with worldwide sales of 3.1 million copies.
