This is awesome! 🙌
Justin Bieber says a “new era” of music begins upon the release of his new single “Holy.” The song and music video focusing on Christian marriage dropped in late September. The song recently hit #3 on the Billboard 100.
The video featuring guest artist Chance the Rapper follows a struggling married couple trying to make ends meet. Bieber sings that his wife’s embrace feels “holy. He also describes his desire to run towards the altar of God “like a track star.”
Bieber’s video features at least two crucifixes. One during the video’s opening, and another around his on-screen wife’s neck.
Here’s some of the lyrics:
“That the way you hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me
Feels so holy, holy, holy, holy, holy
Runnin’ to the altar like a track star
Can’t wait another second
‘Cause the way you hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me feels so holy”
“The first step pleases the Father
Might be the hardest to take
But when you come out of the water
I’m a believer”
Here’s the video below:
Bieber has a history of “heavy drug addiction,” but said he overcame it through God’s grace and blessings.
“I want to be motivated by truth and love,” Bieber said in a Sept. 6 Instagram post. “I want to be aware of my blind spots and learn from them! I want to walk in the plans God has for me and not try and do it on my own.”
Bieber married model Hailey Baldwin Bieber in a Christian ceremony in 2019.
“I want to give up my selfish desires so I can be a good husband and future dad!” he adds. “I’m grateful that I can walk with Jesus as He leads the way.”
What do you think of Bieber’s new video?
St. Raphael, please pray for Justin and Hailey Bieber!
