The song has a touch of throwback to it, blending a 70s rhythm with the George Michael-styled pop fare from the 80s. “Be Mean” isn’t just about getting frisky in the bedroom, it’s about S&M play with Joe Jonas requesting whips, handcuffs and a certain rough edge from his lady.
“Love how you keep me hurtin’/ Be mean be mean to me,” he sings on the chorus, admitting on the verses how much he likes the pain and pleasure he experiences when things move in that direction.
DNCE will be heading out on a major tour beginning in 2017. Their new album drops November 18th. Listen to “Be Mean” below.
