Sweet, innocent, let me be your “Baby, baby, baby, ohhh..” Justin Bieber.

We’ve come a long way since Justin’s inspiring beginnings. His small town Canadian upbringing, the YouTube discovery, that perfectly quaffed hair, his record contract with smooth mover Usher, and oh right, the fact that he was the first solo artist to have four singles hit the Top 40 before the release of a debut album. It’s safe to say the Biebs solidified his stardom status before he reached puberty.

This week, we celebrate Justin. Not because it’s his birthday week, it’s not… And not because he’s engaged, cause obviously we’re not celebrating every Bieber fan’s worst nightmare. We’re celebrating because the Bieb’s new single, What Do You Mean? drops Friday! So in honor of his new song, we’re throwing it back to his Never Say Never documentary days. Stream it on your device or watch it now on EPIX!

It’s safe to say, Justin Bieber has come a long way.
