Days after his 3-D film hits theaters, [artist id="3187077"]Justin Bieber[/artist] will release a new album, Never Say Never – The Remixes. The album will feature stars like Chris Brown, Rascal Flatts and Miley Cyrus alongside Bieber on some of his most memorable tracks.
It also features a new song, “Born to Be Somebody,” which is featured in the credits of the flick. MTV News got the chance to hear the song during the New York screening of the film . The inspirational ballad was written by Diane Warren.
During a Q&A session at the New York premiere, Bieber asked that the sound guys keep the credits rolling before he spoke to fans. “Turn the music up!” he shouted. “They gotta hear the new song.”
On the ballad’s chorus, Bieber sings, “I was born to be somebody/ And nothing’s ever gonna stop me/ Show ‘em what I’m made of/ I was born to be somebody/ I was born to be/ This world belongs to me.”
“It’s a beautiful song,” Warren told The Hollywood Reporter last month after she won a Golden Globe for her “Burlesque” track “You Haven’t Seen the Last of Me,” performed by Cher in the flick. “That’s a good age difference between Cher and Justin — 40 years!”
Bieber has a number of inspirational tracks on the remix album, so “Born to Be Somebody” isn’t new ground for the singer. He proved his endurance in the face of adversity on the film’s title track, and late last year, Bieber released “Pray,” which was featured on his My Worlds Acoustic album. “It’s a very uplifting song, very motivational,” he said of the track at the time. “It definitely comes from the heart. It’s very beautiful. I definitely thought of Michael [Jackson's] ‘Man in the Mirror’ when I was writing it.”
