Justin Bieber Parties, Performs ‘What Do You Mean?’ With Rae Sremmurd In New Zealand [Video]

Justin Bieber and hip hop duo Rae Sremmurd thrilled the crowd at New Zealand‘s Studio venue where the rappers were performing when the Biebs joined them onstage Thursday night.

The trio whipped up a storm as Justin sang his current smash, “What Do You Mean?”, and reportedly bust out the hook on the hip hop pair’s 2014 hit, “No Type.” Footage from the night reveals all three appeared to get lit.

The audience’s reaction to Justin’s rendition of his latest single was, in a word, wild.

As one might imagine, tons of onlooker-obtained video and pictures surfaced online. In one video, the stars can be seen partying with Hennessy on stage.

No doubt this will be reported by the majority of the press as if it’s some sort of transgression. But, the fact is, Bieber has never said he doesn’t drink alcohol. He is 21, and openly says in his new Complex cover story that he likes a drink every now and again.

One partygoer posted a pic that appears to be a shirtless Biebs in the VIP area. It’s claimed he was heard rapping to an Eminem track.

Justin has been friends with brothers Slim Jxmmi and Swae Lee for some time. He appeared as a cameo in their “Lit Like Bic” video, alongside a roll call of celebrities.

It’s not surprising the Biebs may have felt like unwinding with friends. Earlier Thursday, the 21-year-old performed a acoustic set for 150 competition winners at the Tyler Street Garage bar in Auckland, after a day of radio interviews to promote “What Do You Mean?” and his upcoming new album.

Local media reports that the heartthrob told fans in the audience that girls from New Zealand are “sexy.” Edge FM reports Justin sang six songs: “Yellow Raincoat,” “All that Matters,” “One Less Lonely Girl,” “Baby,” “Boyfriend,” and “What Do You Mean?” He also took part in a Q and A.

Around 200 or so Justin Bieber fans without tickets gathered outside the bar. According to reports, the venue’s management let a few in, if they were over 18. The rest had to make do with listening from the outside.

Justin’s trip to New Zealand comes after his three-day visit to down under, during which he performed an acoustic set for the 2DayFm’s rooftop show in Melbourne, appeared on The X Factor Australia, and played a show at Sydney Harbour in a special hosted by the Sunrise breakfast TV show, iHeartMedia, and Optus.

Meanwhile, the drama is building in the impending November 13 rumble between the Canadian and One Direction when both artists drop their new albums.

Earlier this week, Justin posted a Snapchat video of himself from Australia. In the clip, he made a scared-looking face just after saying, “Face you make when you come out with an album the same day as Justin Bieber.” In reply, One Direction’s Louis Tomlimson shared a Snapchat video of him saying, “That face you pull when you’re playing the last night of the 02, ooh!”

Hot on the heels of that malarkey, Liam Payne took to Twitter last night to offer the following. Surely no-one noticed?
