Taking to Instagram on January 31, the Peaches singer dropped a photo of his new addition to digital blockchain; a ‘lonely’ ape.
The NFT is reported to have been purchased for 300 percent more than its market value.
Showing off his newly-accumulated BAYC #3001, the Baby hit-maker wrote alongside the picture, “What if you had it all, but nobody to call, maybe then you’d know me. Cuz I’ve had everything but noones listening and that’s just (expletive) lonely.”
Poking fun at the Canadian singer, netizens quickly reacted to the news. One Twitter wrote, “Next time you think you’re down bad, just remember that. @justinbieber just bought a floor ape for 500 ETH.”
