Struggling pop prince Justin Bieber has been releasing new singles every Monday. Today’s #musicmondays entry: “Hold Tight,” a “love song” that may or may not be about ex-flame Selena Gomez. Bieber and his p.r. machine aggressively pushed the single on Twitter and shamelessly begged fans to take it to the top.

By midday Monday, Bieber loyalists around the world were still working hard to fulfill their idol’s wish.
