Justin Bieber has debuted his first new solo single in five years, an RnB-inspired track called Yummy.

The 25-year-old pop star teased the song to his 123 million Instagram followers on Christmas Eve, revealing in a short film it would be the lead single for a new album in 2020.

Yummy features low-key synth, bass and mostly restrained vocals from the Canadian, with frequent collaborator Jason “Poo Bear” Boyd listed as a co-writer and producer.

“I’m elated that you are my lady,” Bieber falsettos halfway through the track, potentially referring to his wife Hailey, who he described ahead of the song’s release as his Christmas “gift”.

The song sees him touch on his success as he drives a Lamborghini, wears his own fashion line’s “Drew House slippers” and gets help to spend one “hundred racks” or 100,000 dollars (£76,000).

In the short film released before Christmas, Bieber said: “I feel like this is different from previous albums just because of where I am in my life. I’m excited to perform on the tour.

“As humans, we are imperfect. My past, my mistakes, all the things I have been through. I believe I am right where I am supposed to be and God has me right where he wants me.”

Bieber has not announced the release date for his new album.

He will embark on a US tour in support of the new album between May and September 2020, but no UK dates have been announced.
