Justin Bieber's wife, Hailey Baldwin, has helped provide him a sense of stability after he'd struggled with life in the spotlight. Changes, the first album released by the Canadian pop star since getting married, is a fulsome tribute to her.
Over a twanging acoustic guitar, Bieber sings on the title track that he's now a changed person. However, these changes don't mean that his love for her will ever falter.
Bieber concludes the song with an overt nod to his Christian faith.
Uh, people change, circumstances change But God always remains the same
The lyric is a reference to Letter to the Hebrews 13:8 in the New Testament which reads: "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today, and forever."
Justin Bieber co-wrote "Changes" with his "Yummy" collaborators Jason "Poo Bear" Boyd, and Noah Sammak plus the Canadian songwriting and producing duo The Messingers.
Changes debuted at #1 on the Billboard albums chart. At age 25, Bieber became the youngest solo artist to clock up seven chart-topping albums. The title was previously held by Elvis Presley, who was 26 and 11 months old when he did it.
