This club track was released as an iTunes exclusive single as part of the countdown to the release of Justin's debut album, My World. It debuted at #37 in the Hot 100.
Like Justin's two previous releases, the song's subject matter is young love.
The chorus is lifted from "Lovefool," which was an international hit for Swedish band The Cardigans in 1996 after featuring in the Baz Luhrmann movie, William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet.
This song was written by Bruno Mars, Ari Levine, and Phillip Lawrence. Together, they form the production team of "The Smeezingtons," penning a stack of hit tunes for various R&B artists - including a certain song with the F-word in the title for Cee Lo Green.
Bieber joined a history of artists bought by Microsoft for promotions when he sang "Love Me" at the grand opening of a Microsoft store in Mission Viejo, California as part of his Fearless Tour. Bieber also performed the song on CBS's pre-Superbowl show in 2010, and at the Hollywood Palladium on the same tour.
Bieber refers to the video for this song as a "tribute to his worldwide fans, thanking them for their support." Part of the video has him drawing hearts in the air, just to drive it home.
The TV animated series South Park
isn't known for its kind treatment of celebrities. This extended to Justin Bieber, where the show had him being smooshed by Cthulhu after Cthulhu plucked him right off the stage during a performance of "Baby
," egged on by Eric Cartman yelling "Yeah, that's him. So long Justin Bieber!"
Justin Bieber pops into the occasional TV show and film, but probably one of the weirdest is his appearances in the TV crime drama CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. He plays a teenage bomber anarchist, before getting shot down by police at a roadblock.
With Bernie Taupin, Martin co-wrote the #1 hits "We Built This City" and "These Dreams." After writing the Pretty Woman
song for Go West, he had his own hit with "In the House of Stone and Light."
