‘Die In Your Arms’ is “old school and new school at the same time,” said the Biebs, while ‘All Around the World’ features Ludacris.
The title track ‘Believe’ was penned on his bday and is for the Beliebers. He said it the power ballad-style song is “a track I wrote for my fans and is about how they inspired me. Listen to the words … it means a lot. I wrote it on my birthday — it was midnight in the studio and Scooter [Braun] wanted to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ to me but I was like ‘No, let me finish this song!’” Fans first. What a selfless Bieber!
‘Be Alright’ was written on a plane and recorded in Indonesia, resulting in global Biebs, while ‘Right Here’ will feature his boy Drake on the final version. ‘Thought of You’ is one of his favorites, while ‘As Long As You Love Me’ will boast a rapper featuring on it, but Biebs did not want to reveal the identity of the rhymesmith yet. Surprises, yo!
