WATCH: Justin Bieber Drops Music Video for Acoustic Version of ‘What Do You Mean’
Beliebers, this one’s for you!
“WDYM” is only the 23rd song in Billboard’s 57-year history to debut at No. 1, launching with sales of 337,000 downloads. Regardless, it’s very impressive and a big milestone for the Biebs, marking his first No. 1 hit since he started his career in 2008, and making him the youngest male artist to have a song debut at No. 1. He came close to having a No. 1 song with “Boyfriend” in 2012, but it never inched passed the No. 2 spot.
In this new slowed-down version of “WDYM,” Bieber shows off his vocal prowess amidst video footage from the last couple weeks. We see Bieber skating around New York, doing interviews with Ryan Seacrest and Jimmy Fallon, walking the MTV VMAs red carpet and performing on stage (pre-meltdown), playing with a puppy, singing with guitarist Dan Kanter, and much more.
Last week, “WDYM” also broke Spotify’s record for the most-streamed song in 24 hours.
