Justin Bieber dropped the lyric video for his Ludacris-assisted new song ‘All Around the World,’ which appears on ‘Believe’ but isn’t a single. While we’re excited for another new piece of content from J to the B, we must admit, it’s a little dull. Relax, Beliebers. We’re not trashing the song or the Biebs. We love him. But this lyric video is really spare and it’s not much to look at. It’s a lyric vid in the most basic form.

If you want to memorize the words so you can be fully prepared, once you own a copy of ‘Believe,’ to sing the song in your car, then this lyric vid will help you achieve that goal on the quick.

This is a simplistic lyric vid. There are no awesome graphics and no cool visuals that make it feel like it could sub for the actual video. It’s just the text flashing on the screen.

There is something to be said for being straightforward but this one isn’t thrilling. Where are the killer images of Bieber or Luda? Couldn’t the designer have come up with something creative and attention grabbing involving the dynamic duo? The single art, where Biebs hoists a guitar over his shoulders, pops on screen at the end. But that’s about the long and short of it.

Let’s hope this was done purposefully, saving the excitement for the real video.

‘Believe’ drops June 19. That’s just over two weeks away. Hurry up and get here, oh 19th of June. In the meantime, check out our review of ‘All Around the World.’
