Justin Bieber unveiled a behind-the-scenes look at the making of his “Holy” music video on Tuesday (Sept. 22).
Throughout the clip, the superstar sits down to explain the purpose behind the ambitious and cinematic visual directed by Colin Tilley.
“Colin and I, both of our hearts behind wanting to make this video, both from the fact that we know that there’s a lot going on in the world right now. A lot of pain, a lot of heartache, a lot of frustration, a lot of people losing jobs,” he explains while prepping for his role as a down-on-his-luck oil worker.
Later, Bieber also dishes on recruiting Chance the Rapper for the inspirational guest feature on the song’s bridge. “Chance is one of my good friends, I consider him a brother,” the singer says. “I asked him if there was anything on his heart that he wanted to share on this record, and he was like, ‘Yeah, I would love to.’
