Love Yourself

“Love Yourself” is a song recorded by Canadian singer Justin Bieber for his fourth studio album Purpose (2015). The song was released first as a promotional single on November 9, 2015, and later was released as the album’s third single. It was written by Ed Sheeran, Benny Blanco and Bieber, and produced by Blanco. An acoustic pop song, “Love Yourself” features an electric guitar and a brief flurry of trumpets as its main instrumentation. During the song, Bieber uses a husky tone in the lower registers. Lyrically, the song is a kiss-off to a narcissistic ex-lover who did the protagonist wrong.

“Love Yourself” reached number one in fifteen countries. On the US Billboard Hot 100 and the UK Singles Chart, the song became Bieber’s third consecutive number-one, where in the United States it spent 23 consecutive weeks (24 non consecutive weeks in total) in the top-ten and was also Justin Bieber’s first number one on the Adult Contemporary chart, while in the United Kingdom it spent six weeks at the top. “Love Yourself” also topped the charts in Australia, Canada, Denmark, Ireland, the Netherlands, New Zealand, and Sweden.

The music video for the song was released along with the Purpose: The Movement project on November 14, 2015. It features a couple doing an interpretative dance on their house. Bieber promoted the song with performances on TV shows, as well as awards shows throughout 2015-2016, while adding it on the setlist of his Purpose World Tour.
