Justin’s Changes has already sent three songs onto the Hot 100. His first song from the album, Yummy, almost became the singer’s sixth No. 1 on the all-genre songs ranking, but it was kept from ruling by just one track. Yummy is all about Justin’s wife Hailey and his love for her. The two got married last year after a few months of dating. The song is also massively being loved by audiences worldwide. Justin’s last album was released in 2015 after which he went through several ups and downs including his public breakup from Selena Gomez.
