Songfacts®:

  • "Come Around Me" is a bedroom song where Justin Bieber uses several innuendoes to describe his intimacy with his wife Hailey. The Biebs wants his spouse to use her imagination so they can achieve maximum satisfaction between the sheets. He asks her to do this by "coming around him" as if she misses him.
  • The bubbly hip-hop production is courtesy of Justin's go-to collaborator Poo Bear and The Audibles, whose other contributions to Changes include the single "Intentions."
  • The Audibles finished the beat for "Come Around Me" just when Poo Bear was on his way out to a meeting. They played their track to him as he was leaving. "He liked the beat a lot and he literally wrote that song in 15-20 minutes," Jimmy Giannos of The Audibles recalled to Billboard. "He was recording it and rushing out the door."

    When Justin Bieber came in later, he added his parts to the bridge and completed the ending. "That was pretty crazy for me to watch," said Giannos.
