Almost exactly a month after his arrest for alleged drag racing and DUI, a new Justin Bieber song, titled "Broken," has surfaced. It's the first new track by the pop star since the controversy. 

Over a boppy, hip hop beat chocked full of DJ scratches, Bieber confidently addresses the haters: "I guess they want a reaction / But I ain't gonna give it to 'em / Yeah, they trying to get at me, yeah / But I ain't gonna feed in to it." He also has some choice words for those who question his actual talent, (the non-beleibers?) singing, "They can't take what's mine / Someone like me is hard to find / Oh, I cannot be broken / Like I knew you were hopin'."

So, does this mean Bieber is planning a critics-silencing comeback? Or is he just letting us know his days of threatening to "beat the f-cking f-ck" out of people are over?

Dropped the day after we learned the singer's penis may soon become public record, "Broken" comes off a new mixtape by DJ Tay James, Bieber's touring DJ. The tape, We Know the DJ Radio 3—available to download for free!— features recent tracks by DrakePharrellMiley Cyrus and more. There's no word on whether the track was recorded before or after his arrest, but it does feel awfully relevant to Bieb's recent woes.
