Justin Bieber shared a new teaser on Tuesday (April 3) for his highly anticipated “Boyfriend” video.
He tweeted out the short tease days after he dropped the first tease on Friday. The new footage from the Colin Tilley-directed clip focuses on Bieber as he motionlessly floats underwater. Another shot from the blink-and-you-might-miss-it preview features the teen star, in a leather hoodie, standing in front of a burning tire swing.
The first tease featured a shot of Bieber looking at the camera as ladies’ hands caress his face and chest.
And that’s it. So, what does it all mean? Fans will have to wait until the video’s release to find out.
When MTV News caught up with Bieber on the set of his “Boyfriend” video , he shared that the elements would play heavily into the theme of the video. “The concept of this video, I mean it’s not like a steady concept,” he said about the clip. “It’s not like ‘Justin follows this girl to this spot.’ No, it’s a bunch of amazing scenes: Like a fire scene, we have an ice scene.
“It’s kind of like bouncing back and forth,” he said. “And then there’s scenes of me and just a bunch of girl dancers, and just some great shots, great artistic shots, great shots of me smiling. It’s fun.”
“Boyfriend” is the lead single off his forthcoming album, Believe, set for release later this year. It was produced by Mike Posner and Mason Levy.
Anticipation for the album seems to be quite high. The song sold 520,000 downloads in its first week. What does that mean? Well, it places Bieber at #2 in all-time first-week singles sales, behind Flo Rida’s record-holder “Right Round,” which moved 636,000 units in its first week.
