Justin Bieber


They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right?

Then perhaps that's the case at hand when it comes to Justin Bieber's latest single cover art for "Heartbreaker." The image is set against a white background, with the artist's name and song title written around a purple heart that appears to be smudged.

But let's flashback to 2008 for one moment, when Kanye West was releasing his fourth studio album titled 808's & Heartbreak.

The album featured numerous hits such as "Love Lockdown" and "Paranoid" and also featured cover art that looks, well, let's just say it, eerily similar to Bieber's "Heartbreaker" design.

West's is set on a baby blue background with a red, heart-shaped balloon as the focal point.

Between the writing, font and heart imagery, it seems that there are more commonalities than differences between the two pieces of artwork.

Biebs released the song as part of his Music Mondays promotion, where he will release a new song every week for 10 weeks.

"Less than 24 hours. Midnight est #MusicMondays #10weeks #heartbreaker r u ready??!!" the 19-year-old tweeted about the song before releasing the single. "These songs are different. These are my #journals."

The "Beauty & a Beat" singer described the slow melodic tune: "It's a song for people going through heartbreak—like I was when I wrote it. It means so much to me to be able to share what I was, and still am, going through, with my fans. I'm very proud of this song and I hope it gives my fans some insight into my heart."
