Listen: Justin Bieber Does Dubstep

Now we've heard everything...

What happens when dubstep has a baby with the Backstreet Boys? Justin Bieber's new song 'As Long As You Love Me', that's what. Although this baby is fresh out of the womb (ew, sorry), it has still managed to get to #2 on the iTunes charts at record pace.

The song is an homage to true love, featuring lyrics about how even if Justin was poor (which he really isn't), he wouldn't even care, because, like, love conquers all. With lyrics such as "As long as you love me/We could be starving/We could be homeless/We could be broke," Justin delivers (debatable levels of) lyrical substance, as well as (debatable levels of) phat beats.

Since he's evolved to be kind-of-good lately, Biebs' scored some legit cameos for his new album, from Nicki Minaj, Ludacris and Drake, with 'As Long As You Love Me' featuring a verse from rapper Big Sean, who is signed to Kanye West's G.O.O.D. label.

What do the Backstreet Boys think of this unintentional shout out, though? They took to Twitter to give a shout out of their own, tweeting "I don't care who you are, where you're from, what you did #AsLongAsYouLoveMe."
