Justin Bieber is giving fans a little help in starting their week: the singer has released a new single, "Heartbreaker," and the smooth R&B track kicks off his "Music Mondays" series. The song slinks along with rhythmic bump and grinds as Bieber pleads with his lover. "Girl, you see me standing here," he sings, "standing in the rain."

Bieber has referred to the series as his "journals" in Twitter posts, and he plans to leave a candid note with the song. "It's a song for people going through a heartbreak – like I was when I wrote it," he wrote. "It means so much to me to be able to share what I was, and still am going through, with my fans. I'm very proud of this song and I hope it gives my fans some insight into my heart."

"Music Mondays" will run for 10 weeks until December, according to Billboard. Bieber's manager Scooter Braun also tweeted last month that the 19-year-old has a "special movie on Christmas," which would match up nicely with the planned 10-week series.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
