Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj to Appear on Album for Japanese Earthquake Relief

When disaster strikes, entertainers are some of the first who step up and help in any way they can. Looks like a few artists will be getting together to put together a digital download album to help the people of Japan.

The always ravishing Rihanna is among a handful of artists to be featured on a digital-only album designed for Japanese earthquake and tsunami relief. Universal Music Group is fast-tracking for release later this week, according to Reuters. As of press time, Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj, U2 and Bon Jovi were also confirmed to participate, with several other artists pending.The devastation in Japan is massive and time is of the essence, which is why the music company is stepping on the gas pedal while wearing led shoes in order to compile this release — proceeds of which will be donated to the Japanese Red Cross. The lineup for the digital record is not even complete yet and Lady Gaga‘s name is being bandied about as a participant, since she is signed to Universal via Interscope.

“We are doing it only digitally because it is faster, and this will be a worldwide release. The plan is to have it available later this week,” says a spokesperson for UMG.

Kudos to the music business for working at a breakneck pace to come to the aid of those in need and for utilizing technology in order to do so.
