Justin Bieber has been hyping new single “What Do You Mean?” with a star-studded Instagram countdown for the best part of a month, but the PooBear-produced anthem miraculously stayed under wraps until today (August 26) when a snippet surfaced online. It’s always hard to judge an incomplete song, but the track sounds like a stone cold smash. Think Jack Ü collaboration “Where Are Ü Now” on Xanax and whiskey with fully fleshed-out lyrics.

“You’re so indecisive what I’m saying, tryin’ to catch the beat — make up your heart,” the Canadian superstar croons over mellifluous synths. “Don’t know if you’re happy or complaining.” There’s even a portion of the chorus (“you’re runnin’ out of time, what do you mean?”), which is an instantly hummable triumph complete with a catchy clock hook. If there’s such a thing as a late summer smash, it’s safe to say that Justin has one in the bag.
