It’s been four years since teen heart throb Justin Bieber made an unforgettable entrance into the music world with a high voice and a low haircut, being chased by throngs of tween girls wherever he went. Fast forward to today, three weeks after his 18th birthday, Bieber is making a drastic change to his sound — a change that will shock some, but to most, it’s a change that only comes with the territory of growing up in the spotlight.

Bieber’s highly-anticipated new single “Boyfriend” dropped late Sunday (buy it on iTunes here) and delivered on every promise of it being a edgier pop record, infused with a hip hop soul and a sexy beat sure to make Justin Timberlake open his Shazam app.

“It’s dope,” producer/writer Mason Levy told MTV News. “It’s hip-hop, but with great acoustic R&B, pop guitar with very hip-hop, clubby drums and really dope Justin Timberlake-y melodies.”

Listen to the full song below and be sure to go pick it up on iTunes! Then tomorrow morning, don’t forget to watch our “On Air with Ryan Seacrestexclusive interview with Bieber live-streamed on our Facebook page, http://on.fb.me/onairlive.

JUSTIN BIEBER – “BOYFRIEND” – LYRICS
[Verse 1]
If I was your boyfriend, I’d never let you go
I can take you places you ain’t never been before
Baby take a chance or you’ll never ever know
I got money in my hands that I’d really like to blow
Swag swag swag, on you
Chillin by the fire why we eatin’ fondue
I dunno about me but I know about you
So say hello to falsetto in three two

[Pre-Chorus]
I’d like to be everything you want
Hey girl, let me talk to you

[Chorus]
If I was your boyfriend, never let you go
Keep you on my arm girl, you’d never be alone
I can be a gentleman, anything you want
If I was your boyfriend, I’d never let you go, I’d never let you go

[Verse 2]
Tell me what you like yeah tell me what you don’t
I could be your Buzz Lightyear fly across the globe
I don’t never wanna fight yeah, you already know
I am ‘ma a make you shine bright like you’re laying in the snow
Burr
Girlfriend, girlfriend, you could be my girlfriend
You could be my girlfriend until the —- world ends
Make you dance do a spin and a twirl and
Voice goin crazy on this hook like a whirl wind
Swaggie

[Pre-Chorus]
I’d like to be everything you want
Hey girl, let me talk to you

[Chorus]
If I was your boyfriend, never let you go
Keep you on my arm girl you’d never be alone
I can be a gentleman, anything you want
If I was your boyfriend, I’d never let you go, I’d never let you go

[Bridge]
So give me a chance, ‘cause you’re all I need girl
Spend a week wit your boy I’ll be calling you my girlfriend
If I was your man, I’d never leave you girl

[Chorus]
If I was your boyfriend, never let you go
Keep you on my arm girl you’d never be alone
