Justin Bieber debuts ‘All Around the World’ music video
Justin Bieber has released his latest music video, “All Around the World,” and is giving fans and critics a glimpse of his life during his “Believe” tour.
The video plays out as a mash-up of footage from the 19-year-old’s world tour and his performances of the song at various venues. It also shows the tour from his point of view. So it’s fitting and fairly clever that his team approached the song in this manner.
The YouTube sensation-turned-global pop star teased to the video on Twitter Thursday and finally made the big reveal on Friday.
“Blessed and grateful to do what i do #AllAroundTheWorld. Thanks,” he wrote, linking off to the video.
The video also illustrates breathtaking vistas from the places he’s visited and documents a what’s where of national monuments including Big Ben (er, Elizabeth Tower), the Eiffel Tower, the Sydney Opera House, Taj Mahal, pyramids of Giza, the Coliseum and Christ the Redeemer statue in Brazil. Just to name a few. Ludacris, who was featured on Bieber’s breakout hit “Baby” joins Bieber in the video during the rap portion of the track.
The love letter to fans definitely got their attention as various Beliebers responded to the tweet positively, calling it “perfect,” “beautiful” and “amazing.”
What’s most memorable, however, is the rabid nature of his fans, which is on full display in the four-minute, 15-second video. They’re not only screaming and crying but they’re shouting and pouting and chasing him down all along the way.
See for yourself. Check out the 1:16-mark where fans are banging on his car window for autographs. Shudder.
It briefly makes us sympathetic toward the Biebs and his eyebrow-raising behavior this last year, which has included speeding, possibly smoking pot and frequently walking around shirtless.
