Justin Bieber is launching a full-on call to the dancefloor — even though he’s still too young to gain entrance into the clubs. While his new album Believe is still but a few weeks from release (get on that, Internet), his Ludacris-featuring opening track “All Around The World” found its way online today (May 25), and its arguably Bieber’s most dancey track yet. In fact, is this an Enrique Iglesias/Chris Brown leftover? Because it sure sounds like it to us. See for yourself below.
Justin Bieber feat. Ludacris – “All Around The World”
“All around the world / People want to be loved / all around the world / They’re no different than us,” sings the 18-year-old pop star on the heavy dance-ready tune, produced by Bieber’s frequent collaborators The Messengers (“Never Say Never”, “Mistletoe”). Check out the full “All Around The World” lyrics at DirectLyrics.
Bieber could practically be a house artist on a beat-driven, rave-y banger like this. It’s a clear example of how he’s taking baby steps to “swaggy” adulthood through the evolution of his music — keep the content G-Rated, but make the beat something the older club-going crowd can enjoy. So far, it’s working.
