Songfacts®:

  • Justin gets together with his fellow Canadian recording star Drake on this Hip-Hop soul ballad. The pair trade verses in which they both promise their ladies, "to be all that you need." Justin's manager Scooter Braun told MTV News: "The Drake thing is something he and Drake have been talking about for like two years. And then they finally went into the studio, and they wrote that song together. I'm glad that 'Right Here' came about. Drake was like, 'I don't want to do just a rap song. I want to sing with you, do a song for the ladies.' Everyone seems to love that song."
  • Chauncey "Hit-Boy" Hollis, who is signed to Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music label, produced this love song. Hit-Boy has also worked on tracks by the likes of Eminem, Jennifer Lopez, Lil Wayne and Rihanna. Justin told MTV News: "I basically focused on this album for everything to be perfect. To work with these producers that can give me that urban sound but also make it me, that's what we did. I got to work with amazing artists like Drake and I feel like the world, I don't know if they're ready for it."
