Finally! The Biebs is getting back to music — this time, as a baboon. The singer dropped his 1st feature of the year in Lil Dicky’s new song, ‘Earth,’ which includes just about every singer on the planet.
He’s here to save the earth! Justin Bieber, 25, jumped on a track with Lil Dicky, 31, and Beliebers everywhere are freaking over Justin’s first piece of music of 2019. The pop singer teamed up with the “Freaky Friday” rapper for “Earth” on April 18 and it served as a rallying cry to clean up the planet and fight global warming. The new track received a wild animated video to match (Biebs was transformed into a butt-baring baboon — yes, really) and you may recognize more than a few familiar voices! Just like his famed “Freaky Friday” video, Dicky’s latest was co-directed by Tony Yacenda.
Dicky enlisted a TON of celebs to join the song and video with him. Ariana Grande (the zebra)? Halsey (the lion club)? Shawn Mendes (the rhinos)? They’re all there! Other appearances include Sia, Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa, Miley Cyrus, Brendon Urie, Zac Brown, John Legend, Bad Bunny, Kris Wu, Backstreet Boys, Adam Levine, Charlie Puth, and more! They may be in cartoon animal form, but there’s no mistaking the majority of these A-list voices. Even Leonardo DiCaprio, the No. 1 champion for Earth, made an animated cameo. “This might be my favorite song ever. It’s awesome,” he says after the singing fest. As “Earth” gets more streams, more donations will be donated to environmental organizations that Dicky and the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation have selected.
“Like a lot of people, I had a vague idea that something bad was happening here on Earth, but I didn’t really realize how insane our climate crisis is and how screwed humanity is about to be,” says Lil Dicky. “It’s full-on crazy! If we don’t get our act together now, and change a lot about our fundamental behavior, Earth will become unlivable alarmingly soon. Why did it take me so long to get wind of this? I feel like everybody on the planet should be talking about this 24/7. But that’s not the case. So I wanted to make the most entertaining and epic piece of content possible, to get everyone aware and talking. Because it’s now or never… Let’s save the Earth!
Watch Dicky’s new video above! With all of these superstars lending him a helping hand, he really might have just dropped the song of the year — Leo said so himself.
