Justin Bieber has sparked a frenzy among social media users after sharing what appears to be his phone number on Twitter.
The “Sorry” hitmaker went viral on Thursday morning, when he tweeted out a phone number along with a cryptic message.
“Call if you need somebody I will be there for you +1 (818) 210-4058,” the pop star tweeted.
The tweet immediately went viral with thousands of Beliebers expressing shock at the move, garnering more than 103,000 likes at the time of publishing.
However, the tweet is actually a stunt as part of the promotion for Bieber’s new album, titled “Justice,” which will be released on March 19.
Upon calling the number, fans are met with a snippet of one of the Canadian singer’s new singles, and him singing the lyrics “I will be there for you.”
One fan tweeted: “Yahhh! This is consuming my credit phone.” While another added: “Me here spending all my credit listening to the song.”
The album is set to include a 2020 version of “Holy” featuring Chance the Rapper, “Lonely” featuring Benny Blanco and a track titled “Anyone.”
“In a time when there’s so much wrong with this broken planet we all crave healing and justice for humanity,” Bieber tweeted while announcing “Justice” last week. “In creating this album my goal is to make music that will provide comfort, to make songs that people can relate to and connect to so they feel less alone.”
He continued: “Suffering, injustice and pain can leave people feeling helpless. Music is a great way of reminding each other that we aren’t alone. Music can be a way to relate to one another and connect with one another.Justin Bieber attends the Premiere of YouTube Original’s “Justin Bieber: Seasons” at Regency Bruin Theatre on January 27, 2020 in Los Angeles, California.AXELLE/BAUER-GRIFFIN/FILMMAGIC
“I know that I cannot simply solve injustice by making music but I do know that if we all do our part by using our gifts to serve this planet and each other that we are that much closer to being united.”
Bieber added that the album is him doing his small part, tweeting: “This is me doing a small part. My part. I want to continue the conversation of what justice looks like so we can continue to heal.”
Bieber celebrated his 27th birthday on March 1 and his wife Hailey Bieber marked the occasion with a sweet Instagram tribute.
“Another year around the sun with you, another year of getting to love you, grow with you and laugh with you,” the model tweeted. “Happy 27th birthday, you are my favorite human and I’m grateful to be by your side.”
