Austin Mahone has a very special Valentine's Day for "U."
At 4 p.m. ET today (February 14), the pop star will be sit down for an exclusive 30-minute MTV.com interview as part of the special "Live From MTV" series. He'll give us the scoop on his Valentine's Day plans and take questions from fan in our live studio audience and all of you tuning in (just remember to tweet MTVBuzzworthy using the hashtag #AskAustin).
But that's not the only VDay treat Austin had been planning: After teasing Mahomies that he had a surprise on the way, the pop star released a brand-new, midtempo love jam called "U" on Friday — just in time for the romantic holiday.
Austin noticeably slows things down for the sweet track, a departure from his most recent single, "MMM Yeah," which was about a girl he would do just about anything for.
I think it's only right since it's Valentines day I put it out 😘— Austin Mahone (@AustinMahone) February 13, 2014
Halfway through "U," Mahone flexes those Cash Money rap muscles and shows off some rhymes too. "I remember us sitting up late in my one-bedroom apartment/ Memories running through my head, head, head/ You're the only one that I want, if you were to leave me/ I don't know what I would do instead," he raps.
If the song sounds familiar to devoted Mahomies, it's because you may have heard it before. Mahone has been teasing the track for some time, and an acoustic version of the song landed on the Internet last year and the 17-year-old has performed it at some of his concerts.
But since it's the most romantic day of the year, Mahone apparently realized it was only right to give his fans an official version, which will hopefully be included on his upcoming debut album, due later this year.
So everyone has been asking me for a while to release this song😁— Austin Mahone (@AustinMahone) February 13, 2014
