I created this 5.1 mix from lossless multi-tracks/stems. On my Telegram page is a 7.1 mix of this song.
“Sorry” is a song recorded by Canadian singer Justin Bieber for his fourth studio album, Purpose (2015). Written by Bieber, Julia Michaels, Justin Tranter, Skrillex, and BloodPop; the song was produced by the latter two. It was released on October 22, 2015, as the second single from the album. A dancehall pop, tropical house and moombahton song, “Sorry” contains in its instrumentation “brassy horn bleats”, warm island rhythms and a bouncy dembow riddim drum beat. Lyrically, “Sorry” is a plea for a chance to apologize to a lover, with Bieber asking forgiveness and a second chance to redeem himself. Bieber has since said that the lover was Selena Gomez.
Commercially, the song topped the charts of thirteen countries. It spent seven weeks at number one on the Canadian Hot 100 and three weeks at number one on the US Billboard Hot 100; “Sorry” was replaced by third single “Love Yourself” on the chart dated February 13, 2016, making Bieber the 12th act in the Hot 100’s history to succeed himself at number one. He also accomplished the same feat in the United Kingdom, becoming the third act ever to self-replace at the top of the UK Singles Chart. Globally, the song became one of the best selling digital music releases with over 10 million in sales in 2016 alone.
While working on his then-upcoming fourth studio album, Justin Bieber enlisted American DJ Skrillex to produce songs for the record after successfully working with him on “Where Are Ü Now”, which he sent to Skrillex and Diplo for their project Jack Ü and that became a worldwide hit and helped to revamp his career. Regarding his will to work with the producer, Bieber commented: “Skrillex is a genius. He’s super futuristic and I just love his sounds. I think being able to incorporate that sound with what I’m doing has been super cool because it’s like new and fresh, and I feel like no one’s done it before.” Skrillex, on other hand, commented about his involvement on the album, saying: “I heard some well-written songs that were really good that they wanted me to do production on and from there, we wrote some new songs. It was an opportunity to try some stuff that I had never done before and we ended up making something really unique.” Skrillex also invited Michael Tucker, under his producer name BloodPop, to help him produce some tracks for the album. The producer wrote “Sorry” with other songwriters and immediately felt it was a relatable song. Later, he needed to convince Bieber’s team that “Sorry” was “the song”.
A dance video for “Sorry” was released on October 22, 2015. The video, which features the New Zealand dancers of ReQuest Dance Crew and The Royal Family dance crew, was directed and choreographed by New Zealander Parris Goebel, who also appears as a dancer.] The video was initially intended to be a lyric video and was eventually kept as a dance video. As of April 2022, the music video has received 3.5 billion views on YouTube, making it the seventeenth most viewed video on the site, the 22nd to reach 1 billion views, the fifth fastest to reach 1 billion views, the fourth fastest to reach 2 billion views and the seventh fastest to reach 3 billion views.
