Justin Bieber kicked off 2021 to release his new video “Anyone,” which the singer premiered during his T-Mobile-sponsored New Year’s Eve concert.
The video, directed by Colin Tilley, finds Bieber in boxing mode, hopping in the ring, drinking raw eggs, and wooing actress Zoey Deutch. Bieber said in a statement, “I can’t think of a better way to close out 2020 and kick-off 2021 than celebrating with my fans all over the world and sharing this new music with them,” further he added, “Music has gotten us all through so much this year, and for me personally, it’s been healing and transformative. ‘Anyone’ is such a special, hopeful, anthemic song. It sets the tone for a brighter new year full of hope and possibility.”
He released a surprise new year gift for his fans, and covers all his tattoos for his latest video.
Bieber released a Music video for his song “Anyone,” where he plays a boxer with no tattoos.
Biebs shared a behind-the-scenes video of him in Calvin Klein tighty-whities getting his ink-covered up for the shoot.
“No tats for the #Anyonevideo,” he posted on Instagram and Twitter.
