BELIEVE isn’t finished but what Justin previewed certainly impressed the World’s press. Here’s the lowdown on JB’s work-in-progress.
Die In Your Arms: Produced by Destiny’s Child knob twiddler Rodney Jerkins, it’s “old skool meets new”, said Justin.
And the 50s style crooning coupled with a heavy hip-hop kick accounted for that.
All Around The World: Justin’s banging 90s rave anthem to rival LMFAO complete with a rap from his old pal Ludacris.
Believe: The title track is a heartfelt ballad dedicated to his fans. “Where would I be if you didn’t believe,” he sings gospel style.
Be Alright: Written on a plane in “some random country”, this is just Justin and acoustic guitar delivering sunny vibes.
Right Here: Recorded with Drake, this is JB’s cool urban workout, complete with scratching.
Thought Of You: He might be a man now but Justin hits a ridiculously high note on the chorus of this show stopper.
As Long As You Love: Justin’s favourite and due to feature a surprise rap guest (my money is on Jay-Z), this is a dancey R&B nugget where JB promises: “I’ll be your platinum, I’ll be your silver, your gold.”

Those of you familiar with the commotion Justin Bieber causes no matter where he goes or whatever he says will likely understand the fact that when the “Boyfriend” singer took to Twitter recently to jokingly “announce” a supergroup he’s forming with Maroon 5 frontman and “Voice” judge Adam Levine, the Internets took it seriously.
“Back in the studio tonight with my new #Supergroup @adamlevine@kennyhamilton,” Bieber tweeted back in March and continued to jokingly refer to his musical collaborations with Levine and Ryan Tedder for his upcoming album “Believe” as the start of something truly super.
Bieber continued with the supergroup references when he appeared on “The Voice” last week and playfully called out Levine for not being fully committed to their “project.”
“Adam, what’s up, man? Hey, I know we didn’t really get to do our supergroup thing,” he said onstage. “Basically, we were going to do this supergroup, but he released his single, I released my single,” Bieber explained to host Carson Daly, to which Adam replied, “I’m sorry I quit, man.”
MTV News recently caught up with Levine on the set of Maroon 5′s new music video for “Payphone,” where we asked the frontman to address the supergroup rumblings.
“The supergroup thing was a joke and, of course, because it’s Justin Bieber, it gets put up on Twitter and is fact,” Levine said. “We were just messing with people. It’s funny. He’s a really good kid, and I think he deserves what he’s got. There aren’t many people out there who can appreciate that level of success as much as he does. As in the Jewish culture, we say he’s a mensch.”
How we love celeb BFFs. Bieber might have to keep a lid on his budding “bromance” with Levine, however, because fellow “Voice” judge Blake Shelton has already claimed the top bromantic spot, via Twitter, of course.
“Jealous?!! You wish!! He’s mine!!” Shelton immediately shot back in reply.
