The Real Meaning Behind Justin Bieber's 'Peaches'

Justin Bieber debuted yet another song from his album Justice during his NPR Tiny Desk series concert on March 17, 2021. The song, called "Peaches," was the fifth tune Bieber let fans listen to before the official debut of his album Justice, which was released on March 19. He performed "Peaches" along with three other Justice singles "Holy," "Hold On," and "Anyone."

March was a super busy month for Bieber, as he started it by celebrating his 27th birthday and preparing for the release of his sixth studio album. He treated fans to a surprise when he dropped "Hold On" on March 5 after teasing them with a snippet of the song one day prior. The Canadian native also won his second Grammy ever for Best Country Duo/Group Performance with his Dan + Shay collaboration "10,000 Hours."

Bieber's Tiny Desk performance of "Peaches" was stripped down compared to the song's final form on Justice. He sang it by himself during the mini concert, but on his album, it features GIVEŌN and Daniel Caesar. The "Lonely" singer also announced on March 17 that he would release the music video to "Peaches" along with his album. In honor of Bieber's surprise release, let's dive into the real meaning behind "Peaches."

Justin Bieber's 'Peaches' is all about love

Justin Bieber has been laying on the romance with his recent singles. His lead single, "Holy," talks about his deep love for wife Hailey Bieber and how she had him "running to the altar." Meanwhile, his song "Anyone" has him promising he will not love anyone else besides Hailey. "You are the only one I'll ever love ... if it's not you, it's not anyone," he croons.

So, it's not too surprising that "Peaches" is constructed with more loved-up lyrics. The first verse has Justin gushing over Hailey. "It's the texture of your skin. I wanna wrap my arms around you, baby. Never let you go," he sings (via Genius). "There's nothing like your touch. It's the way you lift me up, yeah. And I'll be right here with you 'til the end,” he continues. It's clear he's head over heels!

The chorus of the song also seems to offer some commentary on their life together. "I get my peaches out in Georgia ... I get my weed from California ... I took my chick up to the North," he explains. Justin lived in Georgia as he was building his career. They both have lived in Los Angeles due to their jobs, which would explain the California reference. Plus, Justin and Hailey share a home "up to the North" in Justin's home country of Canada. According to People, they own homes in both California, and Ontario, Canada. "Peaches" proves once again that Justin only has eyes for his wife.
