Justin Bieber Will Perform His New Single 'What Do You Mean' at the VMAs

Beliebers, you have successfully made it 30 days. You've watched the likes of Ariana Grande, Ed Sheeran, Mark Wahlberg, and even Martha Stewart count down until this one moment. What do we mean? Justin Bieber's new song is officially here.

"What Do You Mean," as Bieber and Co. have clearly informed, is the 21-year-old singer's latest track. The highly anticipated tune -- the first from his upcoming studio album -- hints at a promising new direction for Bieber and his music, similar to that of his Jack Ü collaboration, "Where Are Ü Now."
