Justin Bieber And Ariana Grande Tease “What Do You Mean” Remix — WATCH!
As Gossip Cop reported, it was revealed on Friday that pre-ordering Bieber’s new album, Purpose, would give buyers an exclusive duet with Grande. On Saturday, Bieber announced that the mystery song is a “What Do You Mean?” remix. The superstar tweeted, “I finally got to tell @ArianaGrande if u #PreOrderPurpose u get our song together :)”
Accompanying the post was an amusing video in which Grande and Bieber try (read: pretend) to have a conversation through a wall. Naturally, many “What Do You Mean?” and even “Where Are U Now” puns ensue. Bieber says to Grande, “I just wanted to let you know that if they pre-order the album, they get our single, ‘What Do You Mean.'”
Grande replies with a wink, “What do you mean?” Bieber answers back, “No, I mean if they pre-order my album only on iTunes they get our single, ‘What Do You Mean.'” And this goes on for a full minute.
As Gossip Cop has previously reported, Bieber and Grande have been planning to collaborate for some time. In May 2014, both stars, who share a manager, confirmed they were working on a duet. That July, however, Grande confessed they never finished the project, though she also said, “We feel like we owe it to our fans to do something one day.”
“We will finish it and put it out one day, but it just wasn’t the right time,” explained the songstress. Now it seems the “right time” is fast approaching. Much more recently, Grande covered “What Do You Mean?” in concert just last month. Check out the remix announcement video below, and tell us if you’re excited to hear the new version.
