About Somebody to Love

"Somebody to Love" is a song performed by Canadian recording artist Justin Bieber. The song served as the second single from his album, My World 2.0. It was written by Heather Bright and The Stereotypes, and produced by the latter. The song was originally recorded as a demo by Bieber's mentor, R&B singer, Usher, for his sixth studio album, Raymond v. Raymond (2010). After things went stale with Usher's label, The Stereotypes were encouraged to give the song to Bieber, who recorded it, with Usher performing background vocals. The song is an upbeat pop song, which also derives from R&B genre, while making use of Eurodisco influences. It impacted US mainstream and rhythmic radio on April 20, 2010. The remix of the song featuring Usher was featured on Bieber's first compilation album My Worlds: The Collection and his second remix album Never Say Never: The Remixes. Usher re-recorded featured vocals for the official remix of the song, which was released on June 25, 2010. A variation of the track with slightly different production done by Benny Blanco, features Usher on lead vocals and Bieber as the featured artist. It is included on the follow-up release of Raymond v. Raymond, titled Versus. In Japan, the song was released dually with "Never Say Never" as a double A-side single. The song received positive reviews, with critics complimenting the track's dance feel, and the lyrical content. "Somebody to Love" became Bieber's third consecutive top ten hit in Canada, and his fourth consecutive top twenty single in the United States. It also reached the top twenty in Germany, New Zealand and Australia.

Oh oh for you I'd write a symphony!
I'd tell the violins
It's time to sink or swim
March and play for ya!

For you I'd be, whoa
Running a thousand miles to get to where you are
Step to the beat of my heart.
I don't need a whole lot but coming from you I admit I
Rather give you the world or we can share mine!
I know that I won't be the first one given you all this attention, baby listen

I just need somebody to love
I-I, I don't need too much just need somebody to love (Somebody to love)
I don't need nothing else, I promise girl I swear.
I just need somebody to love.

(I need somebody I-I need somebody
I need somebody I-I need somebody)

Everyday I bring the sun around,
I sweep away the clouds.
Smile for me (Smile for me)

I would take, every second, every single time
Spend it like my last dime, step to the beat of my heart.

I don't need a whole lot but coming from you I admit I
I'd rather give you the world or we can share mine!

I know I won't be the first one,
Given you all this attention baby listen!

I just need somebody to love I-I I don't need too much
Just need somebody to love. (just need somebody to love)
I don't need nothing else, I promise girl I swear.
I just need somebody to love.

I need somebody, I-I need somebody,
I need somebody, I-I need somebody.
I need somebody, I-I need somebody,
I need somebody, I-I need somebody. (Somebody to love, somebody to love.)
I just need somebody to love.

And you can have it all, anything you want.
I can bring you, give you, the finer things yeah!

But what I really want, I can't find 'cause,
Money can't find me somebody to love.

Oh whoa, find me somebody to love ooh

I need somebody to love, I-I don't need too much
Just somebody to love, somebody to love,
I don't need nothing else,
I promise girl I swear, I just need somebody to love.

I need somebody, I-I need somebody,
I need somebody, I-I need somebody somebody to love
I need somebody, I-I need somebody,
I need somebody, (I swear I just need somebody to love) I-I need somebody to love

(I need somebody)

Is she out there, is she out there, is she out there!
I just need somebody to love.
