“Personally, I love this video because it’s an honest look at my journey,” said Justin. “The process of putting together this album and this tour - surrounded by people I love to be with - has been really special. I’m proud of it, it’s been a lot of fun and lot of hard work, and I think that really shows in video. I hope my fans like it as I much as I do, because it’s really all for you.”
