The Biebs Is Back: Hear Justin Bieber’s Comeback Single ‘What Do You Mean?’

After a month-long Twitter countdown, Justin Bieber’s long-awaited comeback single has arrived, and it’s really quite delightful. “What Do You Mean?” follows in the path of his Jack Ü smash collaboration “Where Are You Now?” — down to the title, even — with production from half-Jacker Skrillex (and, according to Metro, co-production from Cali the Producer). The song rides a softly skittering beat, with clock-ticking sound effects and tropical-house winds, as Biebs laments: “What do you mean? / When you nod your head yes but you want to say no? / When you don’t want me to move but you tell me to go?”

Listen to the song here, courtesy of a skate-themed lyric video. (Bieber shows up at the end to learn some two-wheel tricks of his own — with Calvin Klein undies sticking out, natch.)
