'What You Want': Cody Simpson's New Self-Directed Video

Cody fans got a big holiday surprise today: The Australian pop star (who will always remind us of a young Justin Timberlake!) finally released his new self-directed music video for "What You Want." Watch above. We're loving the bow tie and we think the gritty, black and white backdrop works nicely with the song's (very) sad tone. Do you agree?

The singer announced the video's release via his twitter today:

"What You Want" is Cody's twist on the song "What You Need" by The Weekend.

(Psst... remember when Cody gave us his advice on how to become 'the next big thing'? Read the interview here!)
