Justin Bieber released a short 15-second clip of his music video for “What Do You Mean?” on Friday, Aug. 28, just hours after he officially released the song and lyric video. In the clip, Bieber is seen shirtless in bed kissing Playboy model Xenia Deli. Actor John Leguizamo also makes an appearance, and Bieber is seemingly kidnapped by a guy wearing a spooky mask.
The 21-year-old singer announced on Twitter the full music video will be released Sunday night following the MTV Video Music Awards, hosted by Miley Cyrus. “You got the song & lyric video. Now the #whatdoyoumean music video comes out on @vevo 11pm est sun after #VMAs,” tweeted Bieber. In a second Twitter post he added, “I’m overwhelmed, humbled, and grateful. I didn’t know how you would all accept me. Thank you. #WhatDoYouMean thank you.”
As previously reported, Bieber will perform “What Do You Mean?” for the first time at the VMAs. He’s also nominated in four categories for his EDM collaboration with Skrillex and Diplo for “Where Are U Now.” The pop star recently told Ryan Seacrest during a radio interview that “What Do You Mean?” is a “fun” song, and he thought the track was “amazing.” Bieber added, “I worked hard on it with [musician] Poo Bear.”
In the “What Do You Mean?” lyric video, Bieber makes a cameo riding a skateboard alongside professional skaters Ryan Sheckler and Chelsea Castro. “What Do You Mean?” is the first single from Bieber in a number of years, and is expected to be included on his upcoming fourth studio album, rumored to be released in November 2015.
