Justin Bieber is sharing his thoughts about the loss of his friend and Universal Music Group exec Thomas Ayad, who was killed in the attacks at Bataclan on Friday (November 13) in Paris, France.
The 21-year-old entertainer took to his Twitter to pay tribute to Thomas.
“Still thinking about Paris and my friend Thomas that we lost in the tragedy. He was a part of the team for years and I wish I would’ve had more time to thank him. Make sure to appreciate people while you have them. Thanks Thomas for everything you did for me. You are appreciated and missed. Thoughts and prayers are with your family & friends #PrayForParis,” Justin wrote.
Justin also paid tribute to the victims of the attacks in Paris during a moment of prayer during his album release shows last week as well as at the taping of Nickelodeon’s 2015 Halo Awards on Saturday (November 14).
Justin Bieber‘s fans have a big reason to celebrate right now – his album Purpose is expected to debut at number one on the Billboard 200 chart this week!
The 21-year-old singer will achieve his sixth number one album if the numbers hold up and he will be beating out One Direction‘s new album Made in the AM in the process.
Purpose is expected to sell 450,000 copies in its first week. The equivalent album units with streaming and other factors built in is 525,000.
One Direction will debut at number two on the chart this week with pure album sales of 400,000 to 425,000 copies. The group is expected to achieve 475,000 equivalent album units with streaming added in.
Both albums are performing a lot stronger than originally predicted. Industry experts had pegged both albums to debut with around 300,000 copies sold, so it shows that the fans sure are turning out in full force!
