Justin Bieber has his fans counting down the days until the release of his new song, “What Do You Mean?” The Biebs has tapped his famous friends — Ed Sheeran, Ariana Grande, and Martin Garrix, to name a few — to help him socialize the song. This heavy promotional effort shows that Biebs is excited about “What Do You Mean?”, which drops in nine days, and wants his fans to love it as much as he does. It also makes us wonder if he’s feeling some level of pressure to solidify a musical comeback.
Rob Shuter from The Gossip Table reports that the Biebs’ album will drop in November, with the first single coming out in October. Right now, “Where Are U Now” by Skrillex and Diplo is enjoying a large amount of success at number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100. Some think it’s the song of the summer.
While we have yet to hear what “What Do You Mean?” sounds like, Rob points out the fact that Justin has made more headlines for his wrongdoings than his music over the past couple of years. With the impending release of “What Do You Mean?”, Rob has two questions:
(1) Do Justin’s fans still care about his music?
(2) Can he perform as well as a solo artist?
We have yet to see. It does sound like Justin’s camp is helping him prepare by booking live performances and radio interviews. Until then, we just have to wait and enjoy these fun promotional posts the Biebs is recruiting celebrities for on social media. Here’s Alanis Morisette’s, which deserves an A+ :
