The long-awaited record dropped on Friday — Valentine’s Day — at midnight following nearly two months of promotion and hype.
As well as the three smash-hit radio singles, Yummy, Get Me and Intentions, Changes features contributions a number of special guest musicians, including Post Malone, Travis Scott, Summer Walker, Lil Dicky, Kehlani, Clever and Quavo of Migos.
“Happy album release day,” the 25-year-old said in an Instagram story. “Make sure to tune in and check that out. Hope you guys enjoy it, I worked really hard on it.”

“I’m just proud of this guy,” he wrote. “The album deserves a congrats but who he is and all he has overcome to reach this moment… love you my guy. Proud of you!”
Since Purpose, Bieber’s last album, fans have been eagerly awaiting his fifth full-length release, and now that it’s out, thousands of his diehard supporters have flocked to the internet to share their feelings about the highly anticipated record.
Some even dubbed Changes his “best to date.”
