Like many other singers, Bieber admitted to using his heartbreak as inspiration for new music. He told Billboard that "Nothing Like Us" is specifically about his breakup with Selena Gomez and added that his personal attachment to the song will make it something "people are going to relate to."
Bieber and Gomez partied ways after two years together on Dec. 30 following a reported feud that took place while they were vacationing in Mexico.
"Nothing Like Us" is far more salve than salvo," Billboard read. "It sounds like the heart-broken teenager that Bieber in all probability is."
As far as speculation that Bieber is desperate to get back together with Gomez, the "Boyfriend" singer said that is untrue.
"There's so many rumors. People say I call Selena every day and she won't pick up the phone or I'm chasing her down, and these are all fake stories," he said.
When the journalist asked whether Bieber was indeed "heartbroken," he replied, "I'm not in the happiest place that I've ever been. I'm trying to get through what I'm going through. Like I said, I have my really close friends to cheer me up and keep me going."
Bieber hosts "Saturday Night Live" on Feb. 9. If "Believe Acoustic" reached No. 1 status on the Billboard 200 list, Bieber will have made a new No. 1 album for four years in a row, and he will have his fifth No. 1 album overall - record-breaking since no other artist has done it before turning 19.
