"I've heard a couple songs," he said of Gomez’s Revival, enthusiastically confirming that he enjoyed the tracks. "I think she's great, super talented."
Bieber said that he hadn't spoken to his ex recently, and he's not sure whether she's heard his new music. "I hope she likes it," he said.
Purpose is an especially personal album for Bieber, and it's already scored him his first No. 1 single with "What Do You Mean?"
"It was just like I could go in two different directions: I could chose to sing about what everyone else is singing about right now, or I could chose to take a piece of me and put it in this project," Bieber explained. "So what I did was, I said 'Hey, what am I going through? What am I feeling?' and basically just poured my heart out into this album and made something real."
Bieber will take the stage on Sunday at the American Music Awards to close out the show with a medley performance. And while he's been seen getting quite emotional during recent appearances, it was Gomez who actually cried on stage while singing "The Heart Wants What It Wants" at the AMAs just last year.
