Commence freaking out, Beliebers: On Wednesday, Justin Bieber announced his new single, "What Do You Mean," arrives on Aug. 28. That's only 29 days away! But wait, this news gets even better: You don't actually have to wait 29 days to hear the song. Yes, a "What Do You Mean" snippet leaked online shortly after Bieber's reveal, and, belieb it or not, it sounds pretty good! If you're a fan of the 21-year-old pop star's current smash hit with Diplo and Skrillex, "Where Are Ü Now," I have a feeling this new tune is going to be right up your alley.
Bieber told Ryan Seacrest on Wednesday that "What Do You Mean" is "uptempo," "fun," and "summery." I like all of those words! He also talked about the inspiration behind the track's title:
Well, girls are often flip-floppy. They say something, and then they mean something else, you know? So, it's like... what do you mean?
So, basically, "What Do You Mean" is about that time you wrote your crush a "Do you like me? Circle YES or NO" note in middle school and they gave it back to you with the word "MAYBE" scrawled at the bottom. Gotcha. (Side note: I think both women and men have difficulty "saying what they mean" at times, but I suppose that's a conversation for another day.) Check out the brief "What Do You Mean" snippet below:
