Justin Bieber’s new single “All That Matters” has leaked.
Numerous users uploaded the acoustic guitar-backed, R&B slow jam to YouTube on October 13. As yet, it’s not known how or who leaked the song.
On Friday, Bieber posted official artwork for “All That Matters” to Instagram, announcing the song as the second single from his “Music Mondays” campaign.
The singer kicked off his release drive last Monday (Oct. 7) with first single “Heartbreaker” and will roll out a new song from his Journals collection every Monday at midnight over 10 weeks in total.
Like “Heartbreaker,” Bieber takes an introspective approach on “All That Matters” with the single featuring emotional lyrics addressed to a female.
The 19-year-old previously told fans the song was “personal” and it’s likely the song will set off yet more speculation about ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez with lyrics such as “What’s a king bed without a queen?”
Following a first verse that topics around “missing” a “lover,” the chorus kicks in with, “You’re all that matters to me / Yeah yeah, ain’t worry about nobody else / If it ain’t you, I ain’t myself / You make me complete / You’re all that matters to me.”
“Take the keys out the car it won’t drive / That’s how I feel when you’re not by my side / When I wake up in the morning up under you, and only you,” before a declaration of fidelity in the bridge.In the second verse, things get more explicit as Bieber sings,
“Uh-oh, I’m grateful for your existence / Faithful no matter the distance / You’re the only girl I see / From the bottom of my heart please believe.”
“All That Matters” doesn’t boast a complicated lyric or subject, but instead opts for simplicity and an expressive directness.
Before the leak, Bieber took to Twitter at the weekend to urge Beliebers to join him in a countdown to the single’s premiere.

On Sunday, the singer also appeared to subtly address new claims by DJ Michael Woods alleging Justin took a “cheap shot” at his tour manager in a South Korea nightclub after entering his booth during his set demanding or requesting (depending which version) that the EDM specialist played hip-hop.
It should be noted the club representative, Ben Baller, has denied any punches were thrown, and says there was a non-physical disagreement over the music selection. The alleged row took place between Friday (Oct. 11) and the early hours of Saturday, (Oct. 12).
An all-out Twitter war broke out after Woods blasted the “Baby” star on the social networking site, followed by random users, tour manager Alex Madden and the notorious DJ/producer Deadmau5.
However, since these early claims a source has denied Bieber was physical with Woods’ manager, adding there is “no truth” to claims of an attack and that “everyone had a lot of fun at the party,” Gossip Cop reports.
Meanwhile, while some fans have pledged not to download “All That Matter” until it hits iTunes at midnight, it’s likely others will check out the song in the meantime.
