Though Justin Bieber fans have to wait until Monday to hear “Boyfriend” in it’s entirety, he isn’t leaving them completely in the dark.

Earlier this week Bieber posted the lyrics behind the first single off his upcoming album Believe and just yesterday he shared 15 seconds of the track while on Ellen. If that isn’t enough for fans, the song’s introduction is also available for listen on YouTube.

In the 10 second preview below, the track opens with a sleek percussion beat. Showing footage of Bieber writing the song lyrics and in the studio, it’s just enough to intrigue and satisfy fans until the single is released on Monday.

MTV News talked with “Boyfriend” co-producer and co-writer Mason Levy recently. He divulged that the record is “different” in a very good way.

“Definitely edgier, it’s more grown-up, it’s more developed and it’s sexier. It’s just like really dope. It’s gonna definitely surprise people,” Levy said. “People aren’t really expecting that they’re going to like it.”

The first track to be released from Believe, “Boyfriend” is an introduction to Bieber’s upcoming LP.

“There’s definitely lots of diversity on the album. There’s really ballad-y stuff and there’s more stuff like this. I would say ['Boyfriend'] is harder,” Levy said. “He’s very open to everything.”

Additionally, Bieber gave his own thoughts on the album.

“You can’t really expect anything form my album. It’s really, really different and it’s new. It’s not the same thing that everyone’s used to hearing right now on the radio,” he said. “It’s really exciting for me because I’m able to break out of my shell and really show my fans what I’m all about and show other people who may not like my music that maybe they can like my music.”

The complete lyrics to Bieber’s single “Boyfriend” are below.

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 while 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 with your boy I’ll be calling you my girlfriend
If I was your man, I’d never leave you girl
I just want to love you, and treat you right

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, never let you go
Na na na, na na na, na na na
Ya girl
Na na na, na na na, na na na ey
Na na na, na na na, na na na ey
Na na na, na na na, na na na ey
If I was your boyfriend
