(RNS) — Justin Bieber’s surprise Easter Sunday release, an EP titled “Freedom” and his most explicitly religious project to date, has raced to the second spot on the iTunes album chart, just two weeks after he released a full album, “Justice.”

Complete with a “3:16” timestamp on the album cover — presumably a nod to the widely seen “John 3:16” signs pointing people to the Gospel of John — the EP features Christian pop singer Tori Kelly, among other artists, and, notably, words from megachurch pastor Judah Smith. According to a video posted on Bieber’s Instagram page, the entire project was completed in a very Eastertide-ish three days.
