Kanye West is a Belieber.

The man who said Will Ferrell has reached “living breathing god status” tweeted Sunday night that Justin Bieber made his favorite song of 2015. “What do you mean by @JustinBieber was my favorite song of 2015,” West shared.

West isn’t alone: “What Do You Mean?” was a major win for Bieber when he debuted the track in 2015. It was his first in an immediate trio of No. 1 singles (followed by “Sorry” and “Love Yourself”). All three appeared on his hit album Purpose, which hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart in November, beating out One Direction’s Made In The A.M.

The track went on to break Spotify’s record for a single’s first week streams globally and was played more than 21 million times in five days.

West’s praise of Bieber comes after he tweeted that he was “going Mad Max” and would put out three albums and six fashion collections a year. So far, in 2016, he’s released The Life of Pablo on Tidal, and has said Turbo Grafx 16 will debut this summer.
