Today is certainly the perfect day to pre-game Justin Bieber‘s Believe release, though the full album is still yet a week away. After a preview of each track on the anticipated LP and a beefier listen to his collaboration with Drake, we get the full track for “As Long As You Love Me.” We assume Bieb is unperturbed that there exists another beloved teen heartthrob song of the same name, as his song could not be more different than the carefree pop of Backstreet Boys‘ 1997 single. (BSB, on the other hand, may be feeling kind of vulnerable right now.) Check it out below.
Justin Bieber feat. Big Sean – “As Long As You Love Me”
The electro-infused track carries your basic we-don’t-need-money-we-have-love sentiment, with Bieber claiming, “As long as you love me, we could be starving, we could be homeless, we could be broke… I’ll be your gold.” The Big Sean cameo is mostly useless, but it does come at a pivotal moment in the Darkchild-produced tune, where it builds and builds to a rave-ready drop.
It’s pretty much official: every pre-teen girl is going to be an EDM fan after this album era, with Bieber to thank/blame.
Believe is out June 19.
