Justin Bieber releases a third teaser for his upcoming "Boyfriend" music video. In it, the teen pop singer pays homage to his idol, Michael Jackson, by striking the late King of Pop's iconic pose. He stands under the moonlight, crossing his legs, bowing his head and snapping his fingers.
Bieber repeatedly said in interviews that MJ has always been his inspiration. Earlier this month, the Canadian singer tweeted that he's influenced by the "Thriller" hitmaker for his upcoming roadshow. "Meeting for the #BELIEVETOUR - gonna be epic. #MJInspiration," he wrote.
"Boyfriend" is a lead single from Bieber's next studio installment "Believe". It debuted high at No. 2 on Billboard Hot 200, selling a total of 521,000 downloads. He notched the second-best debut sales week of all time for a single and the fourth for debut or non-debut sales week.
Aside from offering more mature sound with Justin Timberlake-y melody in the newly-released single, Bieber also prepares a duet with Usher in the new album. The boyfriend of Selena Gomez will return to the favor by serving as a featured guest in the "Yeah!" singer's CD "Looking for Myself".
