Changes is the fifth studio album by Canadian singer Justin Bieber released on February 14, 2020 by Def Jam Recordings and RBMG serving as the follow-up to Purpose (2015). The album features guest appearances from Quavo, Post Malone, Clever, Lil Dicky, Travis Scott, Kehlani, and Summer Walker, with production including Adam Messinger, The Audibles, Boi-1da, Harv, Nasri, Poo Bear, Sasha Sirota, Tainy, and Vinylz, as well as NBA center JaVale McGee, using his music name Pierre. It is primarily an R&B, pop and electro-R&B album with trap elements.
Changes was preceded by two singles: "Yummy" was released as the lead single on January 3, 2020, which debuted and peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100. "Intentions" featuring Quavo, was released as the second single on February 7, 2020. On January 28, 2020, "Get Me" featuring American singer Kehlani was released as a promotional single. For additional promotion of the album, Bieber's 10-episode docu-series, Justin Bieber: Seasons premiered on January 27, 2020 in YouTube. The series was described as an in-depth look on his musical creation process. On February 8, 2020, Bieber performed his first Saturday Night Live performance in seven years.
The album debuted atop the US Billboard 200 chart, selling a first-week sales total of 231,000 album-equivalent units, which was considerably less than the first-week sales of Purpose (2015) in the country, which moved 649,000 units. Similar to Purpose, Bieber released a series of dance videos for each of the tracks on the album, titled "Changes: The Movement". Changes received mixed reviews from music critics, who were favourable towards Bieber's vocal performance and certain elements of the production, but criticized the album's lyricism and the lack of variation between songs. It has since been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and is nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album at the 2021 Grammy Awards.
