“I don’t do well with the drama
And no, I can’t stand it bein’ fake
No, no, no, no, no, no-no-no
I don’t believe in nirvana
But the way that we love in the night gave me life
Baby, I can’t explain”
Bieber’s fifth album was released in February 2020. On September 15, 2020, Bieber tweeted that his new single “Holy” would be released in a few days to signify his next musical “era”. Lyrically, the song is about Bieber’s love for his wife Hailey Bieber and his love of God. “Holy” discusses themes of loyalty and faith, with The New York Times calling it “devotional R&B”.
The music video for “Holy” was released the same day as the song, September 18, 2020. It was directed by Colin Tilley and stars Wilmer Valderrama and Ryan Destiny. The video follows Bieber, a recently laid off oil worker, and Destiny as a couple who met a helpful soldier played by Valderrama. The video has been interpreted as a commentary on the Just Transition. As of January 14, 2021, the official music video has surpassed over 107 million views.
