A week ago, Justin Bieber posted a photo of a mural on his Instagram account that read, "The Feeling." The Washington Post discovered that this mural is not only the name of Bieber's ninth track to his upcoming album, "Purpose," it's also a mural located in Washington, D.C on the 400 block of Rhode Island Avenue NE. It's still uncertain who the artist was behind the D.C. mural, but the artist did ask the manager of Rhode Island Express (which is adjacent to the mural) for permission to spray paint the wall, reports The Washington Post. According to the Chicago Tribune, Bieber commissioned 18 artists in 18 global cities to spray paint murals revealing other new song titles. In the pursuit of more public art in the nation's capital, hopefully additional pop stars will jump on this visual art bandwagon. Beyonce, we're looking at you.
