Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that "All Around the World" is another in a long line of upbeat tracks by Justin Bieber (with an assist from Ludacris), encouraging fans to remember that no matter where they are or what they look like, all people just want to feel loved. With no profanity or mature content, the tune is another fine pick for both younger and older Bieber fans.

What's the story?

"ALL AROUND THE WORLD" is the second track released off Justin Bieber's album Believe. Pairing up with his former collaborator, the rapper Ludacris, Bieber voices yet another positive, clean message about "All around the world, people want to be loved ... they're no different than us" and to "make every second worth it" in life.

Is it any good?


With his more mature, smooth-sounding vocals, Bieber sounds a lot like his mentor, Usher, in this single. Combined with a slick dance beat and solid rhymes from Ludacris, the track is sure to be played at slumber parties and living room dance parties everywhere.

Families can talk about...

New sound for the Biebs!

It's a great song from his new album, Believe, (which is out right now ;). You can dance to it, it has rap, hip-hop, and pop.

All Around The World

This is a very good song. It is kind of a rap genre, pop genre, hip hop, you name it. I recommend getting this.
