Justin Bieber's 'Boyfriend' Single Drops: Twitter Explodes (AUDIO)

Justin Bieber Boyfriend
Justin Bieber released a new single, "Boyfriend," off his upcoming album, "Believe."

Justin Bieber's new single, "Boyfriend," dropped at midnight Monday, and the track was -- unsurprisingly -- everywhere shortly thereafter.

The single off the pop prince's upcoming album, Believe, hit iTunes shortly after the clock struck 12. Biebs himself was in fine form on Twitter, whipping his nearly 19 million followers into a frenzy with a countdown to the moment of truth.

Mike Posner came in big on production for Bieber, and is credited as a co-writer on the track. Bieber recently told USA Today that he sees Believe as an opportunity to present a more mature version of himself to his fans. "I'm maturing, and my music's maturing, so I wanted to do something different," he said.

A recent Complex cover shoot showed a tougher side of the sweet-voiced Usher prodigy. The magazine showed Bieber bloodied and on the receiving end of a few hits as part of their feature (click through for the photos).

The song does sound like radio gold, and it's nice to see Bieber referencing his "swag" multiple times throughout the song (and prepping listeners for his falsetto before it hits their eardrums). The fact that the 18-year-old phenom is dating Selena Gomez in real life, however, adds a certain boyish charm to the track (see the lyrics at the bottom of this article).

What do you think of the track? Let us know in the comments.

VERSE 1

If I was your boyfriend, I’d never let you go

I can take you places you ain’t never been before

Baby take a chance or you’ll never ever know
