About eight short years ago, Justin Bieber got his start on YouTube by performing pared-down versions of hit pop songs.

Now the singer is paying homage to his roots with the release of an acoustic version of his latest single, “What Do You Mean?”

Released on Tuesday, this new take on the track features nothing more than Bieber’s voice and guitar accompaniment.

As an added bonus, the video showcases behind-the-scenes footage of Bieber’s life in recent months, including his photo shoots, dance rehearsals, and that headline-grabbing night at the MTV VMAs.
