Justin Bieber – Love Yourself Chords

“Love Yourself” by Justin Bieber is the ultimate song for bashing your former narcissistic significant one. Released on the singer’s full-length record “Purpose,” the song was first released as a promo single on November 9th, 2015. It was composed by Ed Sheeran, Benny Blanco and Justin Bieber himself.

The song shortly became Justin’s third consecutive number-one on the US Billboard Hot 100 and the UK Singles Chart.

In the United States, it managed to spend 24 non-consecutive weeks in the top ten. In the U.K. it spent six weeks at the top. The song also topped the charts in 15 countries, including Canada, Australia, Sweden, New Zealand and more. It received two Grammy Awards nominations, Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance.

As you can see below, we are looking at a standard, yet highly effective pop chord progression in the key of C.

Love Yourself Lyrics and chords

[Verse 1]

C G/B Am
For all the times that you rain on my parade
Dm C G/B
And all the clubs you get in using my name
C G/B Am
You think you broke my heart, oh girl for goodness sake
Dm C G/B
You think I’m crying, on my own, well I ain’t
C G/B Am
And I didn’t wanna write a song cause I didn’t want anyone thinking I still care
Dm C G/B
I don’t but, you still hit my phone up
C G/B Am
And baby I’ll be movin’ on and I think you should be somethin’
Dm C G/B
I don’t wanna hold back, maybe you should know that

[Pre-Chorus]

Am F C
My mama don’t like you and she likes everyone
Am F C
And I never like to admit that I was wrong
Am F C G
And I’ve been so caught up in my job, didn’t see what’s going on
Am F G
And now I know, I’m better sleeping on my own

[Chorus]

C G Am F
Cause if you like the way you look that much
C G C
Oh baby you should go and love yourself
C G Am F
And if you think that I’m still holdin’ on to somethin’
C G C
You should go and love yourself

[Verse 2]

C G/B Am
But when you told me that you hated my friends
Dm C G/B
The only problem was with you and not them
C G/B Am
And every time you told me my opinion was wrong
Dm C G/B
And tried to make me forget where I came from
C G/B Am
And I didn’t wanna write a song cause I didn’t want anyone thinking I still care
Dm C G/B
I don’t but, you still hit my phone up
C G/B Am
And baby I’ll be movin’ on and I think you should be somethin’
Dm C G/B
I don’t wanna hold back, maybe you should know that

[Pre-Chorus]

Am F C
My mama don’t like you and she likes everyone
Am F C
And I never like to admit that I was wrong
Am F C G
And I’ve been so caught up in my job, didn’t see what’s going on
Am F G
And now I know, I’m better sleeping on my own

[Chorus]

C G Am F
Cause if you like the way you look that much
C G C
Oh baby you should go and love yourself
C G Am F
And if you think that I’m still holdin’ on to somethin’
C G C
You should go and love yourself

[Instrumental]

C G Am F
C G C
C G Am F
C G C

[Verse 3]

C G/B Am
For all the times that you made me feel small
Dm C G/B
I fell in love, now I feel nothin’ at all
C G/B Am
I never felt so low when I was vulnerable
Dm C G/B
Was I a fool to let you break down my walls?

[Chorus]

C G Am F
Cause if you like the way you look that much
C G C
Oh baby you should go and love yourself
C G Am F
And if you think that I’m still holdin’ on to somethin’
C G C
You should go and love yourself
C G Am F
Cause if you like the way you look that much
C G C
Oh baby you should go and love yourself
C G Am F
And if you think that I’m still holdin’ on to somethin’
C G C
You should go and love yourself
