'Earth' will see Leonardo DiCaprio team up with Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande in star-studded new song and music video
'Earth' is the brainchild of rapper and comedian Lil Dicky and features other artistes like John Legend, Bad Bunny, and Psy
Justin Bieber took to Instagram to announce an upcoming musical and video collaboration with some of the biggest stars in the music industry. The 'Purpose' singer posted a teaser for a new song and music video collaboration titled 'Earth', which comes out on April 18 tonight.
The star-studded collaboration put together by rapper and comedian Lil Dicky features a truly phenomenal list of 30 artistes including Bieber, Ariana Grande, Halsey, Zac Brown, Brendon Urie, Miley Cyrus, Wiz Khalifa, Snoop Dogg, Adam Levine, Shawn Mendes, Charlie Puth, Sia, Hailee Steinfeld, Lil Jon, Rita Ora, Miguel, Katy Perry, Lil Yachty, Ed Sheeran, Meghan Trainor, Tory Lanez, John Legend, Bad Bunny, Psy, Kris Wu, Backstreet Boys, Benny Blanco, Cashmere Cat, comedian and actor Kevin Hart, basketball player Joel Embiid and actor Leonardo DiCaprio.
In an appearance on the 'Ellen Degeneres Show' earlier today, the rapper and comedian explained what the music video is about. "There are 30 artistes and each one is an animal: Justin Bieber is a baboon, Ariana Grande is a zebra, Ed Sheeran is a koala bear — it [the song] is about saving the Earth," he said. The collaborative effort focuses on bringing to attention the grave environmental crisis to the young generation.
Well, that really makes Leonardo DiCaprio's interest in the project. DiCaprio's role as an environmental activist is quite well known. At the age of 24, the actor established the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to promoting environmental awareness. In fact, his Instagram is basically a conservation guide. This has gotten us all the more excited — the actor has contributed a lot to the cause of environment and maybe rapping is the next step?
Stay tuned, the song and video are scheduled to release at 9 pm PST.
