This time, the "Earned It" star has debuted a new hairstyle, leaving his fans in total shock.

While the star has had his iconic dreadlocks, a huge afro and short hair, he has decided to come with something new once again.

In a recent interview with Esquire, the singer explained the meaning behind his hit song "Blinding Lights" and revealed he weren't always confident with his appearance.

The star told the publication: "I wasn’t too confident with how I looked," he said about when he first came on the scene.

"I didn’t think that I could sell the music looking like me. I was very hardheaded. To this day, I don’t think I’ve ever done a radio interview. I just feel like I would give a horrible interview."
