Justin Bieber dropped “What Do You Mean?” on Friday, just hours after the lyric video for the Canadian pop star’s newest single leaked online early.
Bieber made no mention of the leak in the lead up to the song’s official release. He teased fans on the hour via Twitter, and then posted the song’s Spotify link with a simple “i’m back.” The official lyric video, which features skateboarders Ryan Sheckler and Chelsea Castro (and a cameo from Bieber), soon followed.
And what of the song? It’s a banger, a dance-y blast that finds Bieber singing lyrics like, “What do you mean? / When you nod your head yes / But you wanna say no / What do you mean?” The 21-year-old will perform “What Do You Mean?” for the first time at Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards.
