Justin Bieber is feeling the Holy spirit.

Dropped on Friday morning, his new single finds the born-again Biebs taking it to church with Chance the Rapper in a gospel-charged song about a righteous romance.

The way you hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me/Feels so holy, holy, holy, holy, holy, sings Bieber about a love thats got him runnin to the altar like a track star with a choir behind him.

Chance comes through midway in the song, first crooning a la Bieber and then rapping: Im a believer/My heart is fleshy/Life is short with a temper like Joe Pesci&When they get messy/Go lefty, like Lionel Messi.

Holy comes with a cinematic video that is a far cry from his stuck-on-lockdown Stuck with U clip.

In the video, Bieber plays a greased-up (but still sweet-faced) oil-rig worker who loses his job due to the pandemic. Meanwhile, his essential-worker boo  played by onetime JB superfan Ryan Destiny, formerly of TVs Star  is a nurse who loses one of her patients.

Although its not quite clear how they end up homeless, the down-on-their couple end up getting a helping hand from Wilmer Valderrama  holy That 70s Show flashback!  who shows up out of nowhere as a returning soldier who offers them a warm, home-cooked meal.

Its all calculated to pull on your heart strings in this trying 2020, but theres no doubt that Biebers heart is in the right place.

Holy arrives just seven months after Bieber released his comeback album Changes, and the song continues the roll hes been on with hits such as Yummy, Intentions and Stuck with U.

And lets hope the star will be able to hit the road as scheduled next year: His Justin Bieber World Tour is supposed to launch in June 2021.

Perhaps some divine intervention will be needed to make that happen.
