Justice’s record label responded after it was apparently suggested that Justin Bieber ripped off the French duo’s recognizable logo for their latest album.
Bieber unveiled the cover art for his new album “Justice” last week, which includes a nod to the singer’s Christian faith by using a cross for the “t” in the title.
The logo reveal quickly saw fans compare it to the logo electronic duo Justice has used since its inception in 2003 – and it seems their management is all too aware of it.
In fact, it turns out that Bieber’s team already reached out to Justice management about a potential collaboration on the chart – before discussions ended last year.
“The Bieber team sent us an email in May 2020, requesting to be put in touch with the graphic designer for Justice to discuss a logo,” Justice management said. TOURNAMENT.

“We tried to set up a call between the Bieber team and our designer, but the call never ended and the conversation ended there. No one ever mentioned an album called Justice or a logo that says Justice. The first time we saw anything about it was the announcement.
The duo’s label Ed Banger also took to Instagram by sharing an image of Bieber’s original sketch for the art of “ Justice, ” with a decidedly sarcastic caption.
“Ed Banger Records Appoints Justin Drew Bieber as Artistic Director. We would like to thank Mr. So Me for all his hard work since 2003. With love (and much pleasure) pw, ”they wrote.
For his part, Bieber tagged art director Mikkel Aranas and video director Rory Kramer in an Instagram post announcing the record – confirming that they were also involved in the creation process.
Announcing the record last week, Bieber said, “Music is a great way to remind ourselves that we are not alone. Music can be a way to communicate with each other and connect with each other.
“I know I can’t just solve injustice by making music, but I know that if we all do our part by using our gifts to serve this planet and each other, we are that much closer. to be united. ”
He is expected to debut on the new track “Hold On” tomorrow (March 5) on the occasion of his 27th birthday.
