The rollout for the June 19 release of Justin Bieber’s “Believe” album continues with the arrival of the club banger “All Around the World.”
The song is available now on iTunes. Next Tuesday comes the release of “As Long As You Love Me,” featuring Big Sean.
But “World” offers a guest spot from fellow Atlantan – and “Baby” contributor – Ludacris.
While the song isn’t much more than a chorus — “All around the world, people want to be loved. All around the world, they’re no different than us,” Bieber sings repeatedly in echo-y, layered vocals over synthesizers that bend and bleep – Ludacris’ arrival kicks it to a new level.
“I love everything about you, you’re imperfectly perfect,” Luda raps, then fluidly spits such feel-good platitudes as “Lost time is never found” and “Hate may win some battles, but love wins in the end.”
“World” is a switch from Bieber’s finger-snapping Jacksons throwback, “Die In Your Arms,” released last week. Expect “World” to be inescapable this summer.
