WHAT DO YOU ACTUALLY MEAN: AN ANALYSIS

  1. Justin Bieber is definitely onto something
    And by onto something, I mean efficiently stealing the sound of R&B's past
  2. And this new record is nothing short of 🔥
  3. "What Do You Mean" gotta be in my top poppy songs of 2015
  4. But each listen comes with its sufficient amount of introspection
  5. Let's observe
  6. "What do you mean when you nod your head yes, but you wanna say no?"
    Hmmm seems like JB is struggling a bit with verbal cues. Bae's not be clear enough for his purposes
  7. "What do you mean - when you don't want me to move, but you tell me to go?"
    🤔🤔🤔
  8. …"First you wanna go to the left then you wanna turn right. Wanna argue all day, making love all night."
    Oh, so this is about your broader relationship? Why didn't you say so!
  9. …"I really wanna know - what do you mean?"
    WAIT - is this shit about consent?
  10. "When you nod your head yes, but you wanna say no"
    I think she was pretty clear here JB. She told you to back the fuck up.
  11. "When you don't want me to move, but you tell me to go - what do you mean?"
    SHE MEANS NO, BIEBS
  12. "Since you're running out of time, what do you mean?"
    i.e. This hard on I got is quickly dwindling.
  13. "Betta make up your mind, what do you mean?"
    *locks away vagina*
  14. He even ad libs "be more straightforward" at one point
    !!!!!!
  15. Stay woke to these nonconsensual synths and 808s, y'all
  16. And the fuck is this white D'Angelo-appropriated cover???
  17. *plays "Purpose" for the umpteenth time*
