Biebermania Back! He showed he could take his lumps on that coverstory in Complex, and tonight Justin Bieber debuted “Boyfriend,” the lead single off his upcoming Believe album. The song is produced by Mike Posner, but I’ve been hearing buzz for weeks about how the teenybop idol is a “whisper-rap” flow…also described as a mix between Justin Timberlake’s “SexyBack” and the Ying Yang Twins’ “Wait.” But it works. And I also think Bieber’s strategy of being the new Timberlake that old Timberlake refused to be….is a great idea.
What do you think of the Biebs’ more mature and urban sound? His Believe album will features contributions from Pharrell, Timbaland, Drake, Diplo, Hit-Boy, will.i.am, and more.

“Tell me what you like, dear/Tell me what you don’t/I could be your Buzz Lightyear/Fly across the globe/You don’t even need to fight, dear/You already know/I can make you shine bright/Like you’re laying in the snow/Burr.”
