It's been nine months since Justin Bieber has released new music, but he's finally returned as a feature on Lil Dicky's "Earth", and it's for good reason too. Just in time for Earth Day, Lil Dicky, the comedy-rapper with a tendency for virality, showcased his understanding of the peril our planet faces. In an effort to assuage the harmful actions of humankind on Mother Earth, he brokered a team of superstars to come together on his song and make a difference.

"Earth" is foul-mouthed and obscene, but it's well-intentioned and pure in heart. With jokes like Snoop Dogg appearing as a cannabis plant in the music video, Lil Dicky clearly wasn't going to take the humor out of his serious message. In fact, every celebrity is featured with a degree of comedy. Each was assigned an animal (and silly lyrics like "Hi, I'm a baboon/I'm like a man, just less advanced and my anus is huge") to represent what's at stake if we don't correct our wrongs now. The song and its video immediately took off with 25 million views on YouTube in just 3 days. With a cast list including Ariana Grande, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus and Ed Sheeran, it makes sense why so many are paying attention.

Thanks to Lil Dicky, people are listening to his calls for actions on climate change. Even more thanks to him, the proceeds from those listens are being directed towards environmental charity organizations. Beckoning back to "We Are The World," this song was made to affect change, and while it's always fun to have our favorite celebrities collab, we sure are happy it was for this. Happy Earth Day.
