His other hits includes Boyfriend, Where Are You Now, Sorry, What Do You Mean?, Love Yourself, Company, No Pressure, and goal and so on and so forth.

"It will place India on the global map and open up avenues for other artists of similar stature who may want to consider India as part of their touring roster", he said. Right after its release, it became the most-streamed album on Spotify in one week with the number "What Do You Mean".

Bieber also holds the record for the highest most Twitter followers for any male user. The Canadian pop sensation and Grammy Award victor who has a massive fan following across the globe will be performing in Mumbai as part of his Purpose World Tour. Justin won the Grammy for Best Dance Recording for Where Are You Now in 2016.
