Beliebers, rejoice — Justin Bieber is headed to the MTV Video Music Awards this weekend, where he’ll perform his new single “What Do You Mean?” for the first time.

The song, which drops Friday, is the lead single from Bieber’s to-be-titled next album and has been described a “catchy dance track for the club” by USA Today.

Bieber last took the VMA stage in 2010, and this year he’ll join previously announced performers the Weeknd, Pharrell Williams, Demi Lovato, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Tori Kelly, A$AP Rocky, and Twenty One Pilots. Kanye West is also set to receive the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.

Bieber’s fellow pop provocateur Miley Cyrus is hosting the VMAs, and he name-checked her in a tweet announcing his performance. “Only @mileycyrus. Lol. It’s true. I’m performing on the #vmas!! #bieberisback,” he wrote.

The VMAs air on Sunday.
