Braun hinted that 2019 could be the year that we get a new album from the 25-year-old singer.
2019 is gonna be a wild one. I just feel it— Scooter Braun (@scooterbraun) January 5, 2019
And it seems Braun really wants to make fans freak out. On Saturday, Jan. 5, Braun tweeted “JB5!?!?”
The tweet is now deleted, but you know fans didn't let that type of information just slip by. There is screenshot proof that Braun discussed Bieber's next album on Twitter, and everyone is understandably freaking out.
Braun's tweet caused Twitter users to reach out to him in order to express their distress and impatience for the album, with some fans even threatening legal action.
I STG THIS BETTER BE A JB5 OR ELSE IM SUING MR BRAUN WE ARE DYING OF THIRST OVER HERE WE ARE ASPHYXIATING— chloe (@jvkejams) January 5, 2019
Justin's last full-length album, Purpose, was released all the way back in 2015 and spawned singles such as What Do You Mean, Sorry, Love Yourself and Company. Since then, the singer has participated in numerous collaborations, but has not released any albums of his own.
Perhaps Bieber has been busy with the new clothing line, Drew House, which he is rumored to be involved with. The first product from the line launched two weeks ago and sold out online almost instantly.
Bieber has also been busy focusing on his marriage to Hailey Baldwin, which took place back in September but has only been public knowledge since November, when the couple made it Instagram official.
For Braun's sake, and the sake of Bieber's fans, we hope that JB5 really is coming in 2019.
