Justin Bieber has been making quite the musical comeback. With a little help from Diplo and friends including Skrillex also known together as Jack Ü, the singer gave a vocal-assist to summer-anthem-in-waiting "Whare Are Ü Now" that finally got him back on everyone's musical radar with a chart-topping hit.

Following a long string of celebrity-filled promotion, Justin debuted his new song "What Do You Mean" before hitting the VMA stage a couple days later to perform it live in what is now an infamous tear-filled moment. Following the official release (including a video co-starring John Leguizamo), the song has since been breaking records including beating out One Direction's "Drag Me Down" to become the most streamed song in five days on Spotify with 21 million streams. The song also debuted in the No. 1 spot of the Billboard Hot 100 to become his first number and and make him the youngest male artist to ever debut at No. 1 according to Billboard

Today, Justin released an acoustic version of the song cut with behind the scene takes at his last few weeks including his performance at the VMAs captioning the video "Thank u my beliebers. this is for u." Watch the acoustic version above.
