The footage features Bieber getting close with an actress with a resemblance to real-life girlfriend Selena Gomez, as well as strumming a guitar, taking the wheel and showing off some flashy dance moves.

The grown-up track is the first single from the pop star's "Believe," which is due this summer.

A new Bieber video is an event: in October, he became the first artist to reach 2 billion views on YouTube, and "Baby" remains the site's all-time most-played track, with over 732 million views of Thursday. "Boyfriend" has already made its mark on the charts, bowing at No. 2 on the Hot 100 last month with an impressive 521,000 first-week downloads sold -- the second highest digital debut yet, below only Flo Rida's "Right Round." An audio-only Vevo upload of "Boyfriend" has already marked over 19 million views.
