“Personally, I love this video because it’s an honest look at my journey,” said Justin. “The process of putting together this album and this tour - surrounded by people I love to be with - has been really special. I’m proud of it, it’s been a lot of fun and lot of hard work, and I think that really shows in video. I hope my fans like it as I much as I do, because it’s really all for you.”
The India story reflects the global one as `PURPOSE’ is now certified a phenomenal 6xPlatinum here! Propelled by the massive hit singles “What Do You Mean”, “Sorry” and “Love Yourself” which have all peaked at #1 across tv, radio and on line charts across the country, `PURPOSE’ is by far the best-selling International album of 2016 in India. With this album, Justin has cemented his position here as a superstar! It’s worth noting here that his fans from India supersede any other country on his official Facebook page where he has over 77 million fans! With the release of his brand new video “Company” his fans in India are in for a treat as Justin gives them an inside view of some of his most rare and intimate scenes captured over the last year.
