On his twitter account, Bieber described the new track as "a song for people going through heartbreak—like I was when I wrote it. It means so much to me to be able to share what I was, and still am, going through, with my fans. I'm very proud of this song and I hope it gives my fans some insight into my heart."
He also said that the upcoming songs would be different from his usual work, and would be more like his "journals."
The teen heartthrob dedicated his new track to an unexpected celebrity. He posted on his Instagram: "Heartbreaker goes out to Oprah Winfrey. Love u girl."
