An acoustic version of â€œWhat Do You Meanâ€ by pop idol Justin Bieber just became available for our listening. While Bieber might not be an idobi.com usual, our staff still had a lot to say when it came to the track. Check out what we thought, then throw in your opinion in the comments.
Can we talk about how sick this Justin Bieber song is? â€“ Matt Vogel
Bieber â€œfanâ€ or not, we should all be happy to see that chill new wave, not quite EDM, not quite pop sound turn mainstream. When a mainstream artist borrows from whatâ€™s doing well underground itâ€™s good for everyone. Green Day did it by making punk mainstream, etc. This song also, I believe, is the debut of a new Bieber. One like Nick Jonas tried to do after the Jonas brothers [and wanted] to be taken seriously as an artist, by showing a more honest and mature vocal style. Letâ€™s just say my main point is there is a reason why this is Justinâ€™s first number one debut and why he deserves the title of youngest person to receive such an honor. Letâ€™s hope this means a more serious route for the once bad boy star. Letâ€™s see him mature [and] become to us, who grew up annoyed by him, see him become equal to the likes of Timberlake. Itâ€™s all up in the air, but this song proves itâ€™s possible. â€“ Miguel Tenicela
He is bae. Really though, itâ€™s such a â€œgood moodâ€ song. Iâ€™m not sure exactly what it is about itâ€”maybe the triumph of Bieber coming back from his â€œbad boyâ€ imageâ€”but it really is a jam. Also, for a pop song, itâ€™s pretty emotionally honest â€”which isnâ€™t something you get that often. â€“ Shelby Chargin
Heâ€™s backed by the best team in the world. This album will for sure be his biggest so far. â€“ Catherine Yi
I want to hate it, but itâ€™s head-bobbable. â€“ Olivia Carpenter
Iâ€™m really enjoying this song. Iâ€™ve always thought Justin had a great voice, he just sometimes wasnâ€™t making the right songs to showcase that I think. But this, especially the acoustic version, I really dig because the dude can sing. â€“Â Hannah PierangeloÂ
