Rory KramerJustin Bieber’s Valentine’s Day gift to his Beliebers was an exclusive concert on TikTok featuring the first-ever live performance of his fan-favorite 2013 album, JOURNALS. Turns out it was just what they wanted.
The performance is now the most-viewed single-artist livestream in TikTok history, attracting more than four million unique views over its two airings.
In addition, fans wanted to hear more: JOURNALS hit the three billion streams landmark over the weekend, and two of the tracks from the project actually charted in various countries, according to Justin’s record label.
And because a rising tide evidently lifts all boats, Justin’s latest single, “Anyone,” hit number-one on iTunes over the weekend.
As previously reported, JOURNALS was released as a digital-only companion to Justin’s 2013 concert film, Believe, but was never released physically or promoted to radio in any significant way.
