Justin Bieber always had a way of surprising his fans, but he really outdid himself with his latest single “Anyone”. Dropped on the first day of 2021, this video gave us some major Rocky Balboa vibes.

The singer’s latest video was directed by his frequent collaborator Colin Tilley and it sees actress Zoey Deutch playing his love interest. Just like the beloved movie character the video is inspired by, Bieber spends most of the time training and boxing in the ring.

The Canadian superstar first performed this song during a recent New Year’s Eve performance and said he can’t think of a better way to kick off 2021 than sharing new music with his fans all over the world.

“Music has gotten us all through so much this year, and for me personally it’s been healing and transformative. ‘Anyone’ is such a special, hopeful, anthemic song. It sets the tone for a brighter new year full of hope and possibility,” said Bieber about his latest single.
