Toronto street artists help promote Bieber's new album

To promote his latest album Purpose, Justin Bieber employed street artists from around the world to reveal his track list and roster of heavy-weight collaborators one mural at a time. The Stratford-native Instagrammed each graffiti wall yesterday, though some Torontonians might have gotten a glimpse at one before it appeared online.

That's because one of the murals is located at the corner of Harbord and Manning. Created by Toronto-based artists Kyle Howard and Max Sawka, this wall features the song title "Life Is Worth Living," which Rolling Stone lists as track 10 on the album.

Bieber graced numerous cities around the world with his purposeful art, including Vancouver, Los Angeles, New York, Berlin, Oslo and London. Along with already released singles like "What Do You Mean?" and "Where Are Ü Now?" with Skrillex and Diplo, we can look forward to upcoming songs featuring the likes of Big Sean, Travis Scott and Nas.

Artists from Toronto, and southern Ontario in general, have been getting lots of attention lately as they continue to dominate on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (The Weeknd, Drake, Justin Bieber and Shawn Mendes take spots one to four, respectively). Bieber's next album drops on November 13.

Have you seen Kyle Howard and Max Sawka's mural yet? Let us know in the comments.
