Justin Bieber’s new single, ‘What Do You Mean,’ will be out in just a few days, but it looks as if we’ll still have to wait THREE long months before we get our hands on the new album, according to a new report!
Ever since he announced the release date of his next single “What Do You Mean,” we’ve been dying to hear more from Justin Bieber, 21 — and it looks like that day will finally come…soon! The sexy singer has reportedly set a release date for his as-yet-untitled album and because Justin’s apparently not a superstitious dude, it’s coming on Friday the 13th. Spooky!
The “Boyfriend” singer has said repeatedly that he’ll release new music in 2015, and he’s making good on that promise by dropping his new, full-length album on Friday, Nov. 13, Billboard reports. Official word from the Biebs’ camp has yet to come, and reps for the pop superstar have not yet responded to HollywoodLife’s request for comment, so the date’s not exactly set in stone, but it is looking good.
Justin announced “What Do You Mean,” the presumed first single from the album, on Ryan Seacrest‘s, 40, radio show on July 29, and told the host, “I’ve been working a lot in the studio, just trying to have a consistent sound, a cohesive sound.” He then went on to describe the single as “uptempo” and “summery,” while also mentioning that it may have something to do with his difficulties in dealing with the opposite sex. “Girls are often flip-floppy. They say something, and then they mean something else,” the crooner said of the song’s lyrics. “What do you mean? … I don’t really know, that’s why I’m asking.” While the song has yet to be released, it did come in at No. 4 on the Billboard + Twitter Top Tracks chart for Aug. 15, which gives us high hopes for the rest of his new work.
Justin himself has definitely helped to stir up anticipation for the single thus far. In fact, he’s started a sort of countdown campaign for the days leading up to the single’s release– and it is ridiculously star-studded. In the mere weeks since the promotional stunt began, he has already recruited the likes of Ariana Grande, 22, Mariah Carey, 45, Shaquille O’Neal, 43, and Kylie Jenner, 17 among others. Needless to say, we are psyched to see what Justin has in store for us with this new album. Friday the 13th can’t come soon enough!
