Remember when Justin Timberlake was the dude in NSync with the blonde jheri-curl? And then, almost overnight he was the dude rockin' a skinny ties with a 5 o'clock shadow bringing 'Sexy Back?' According to numerous industry taste-makers, that's what Justin Bieber's new single 'Boyfriend' will do for the pop star once it drops in the next 48 hours.

The kid has hits. The kid has swag. His "friends" include guys like Drake, and his girl is a teen pop princess named Selena Gomez. According to Popcrush,

he may very well be the new J-Timberlake.

After releasing the lyrics and a very bare bones instrumental intro, he actually played a longer snippet with vocals on 'Ellen.' He continued the teasing by debuting a new video today on Twitter, along with the hashtag #35HOURS.

Beliebers, rejoice. Bieber-haters, it's gonna be a lonnnnnnnnnnnng summer for you.
