Justin Bieber’s hit “Sorry” has hit the remarkable record of 12 million visuals on YouTube, becoming the first single from the Canadian singer to achieve such a success.
The song, which was published as part of the Canadian singer’s fourth studio album “Purpose” in 2015, is a dance hall-pop piece which was composed by Bieber alongside Julia Michaels, Justin Tranter, Skrillex and BloodPop.
“Sorry”, which is, as suggested by the name, a supplication for forgiveness made to a lover, stayed for 7 weeks at the top of the Canadian Hot 100 chart and for 3 weeks as number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart after release and was later substituted by another single from the same album, “Love Yourself”, written with the collaboration of English singer and songwriter Ed Sheeran.
Justin Bieber has celebrated the achievement on social media, on his Twitter account in particular, where he shared a link to a fan page reporting the news and wrote: “You like me?” in his signature “bad boy style”.
