There is merely one week until 'Believe' lands. We know, Beliebers, we know. It's an eternity and cruel and unusual punishment to have to wait one second more for Justin Bieber's new album to drop. We're right there with you, bursting with anticipation. Luckily for the Belieber nation, the new song 'As Long As You Love' me featuring Big Sean has dropped. The good news? It sounds nothing like 'Boyfriend' or 'Die In Your Arms' or 'All Around the World.' It's unique and different unto itself. The bad news? There is no bad news, unless you are a Belieber who had to wait for the song to drop on iTunes.
