Trivia Edit

I never really liked “Beauty and a Beat”. But I understood what it was at the time. And it was music that was popular at that time, as well. But I was never really a huge fan of that song.

– Justin on The Bert Show, a radio show.


Music VideoEdit

The video features Bieber at a party with most scenes taking place at a swimming pool at Raging Waters in San Dimas, California. Minaj makes an appearance during her verse in the song standing in the water, rapping alongside Bieber.

The video premiered on Vevo on October 12, 2012. It opens by stating that in October 2012, 3 hours of personal footage was stolen from Justin. It was then illegally uploaded by an anonymous blogger. Bieber wrote the video's storyline himself and co-directed the video itself with Jon Chu.

The video racked up a huge 10.6 million views in its first 24 hours of being online. In doing so Justin surpassed the previous VEVO record held by One Direction's "Live While We 're Young,"which claimed 8.24 million views within its first day. The video already lost the record.

Show you off
Tonight I wanna show you off (aye,aye,aye)

A billion could've never bought (aye,aye,aye)

We gonna party like it's 3012 tonight
I wanna show you all the finer things in life
So just forget about the world, we young tonight
I'm coming for ya, I'm coming for ya

Cause all..
I need, is a Beauty and a Beat
Who can make my life complete
It's all..
Bout you, when the music makes you move
Baby do it like you do
Cause..

[Beat break]

Body rock,
Girl, I can feel your body rock (aye,aye,aye)
Take a bow, you on the hottest ticket now (aye,aye,aye)

We gonna party like it's 3012 tonight
I wanna show you all the finer things in life
So just forget about the world, we young tonight
I'm coming for ya, I'm coming for ya

Cause all..

Who can make my life complete
It's all..
Bout you, when the music makes you move

In time, ink lines, b-bitches couldn't get on my incline
World tour, it's mine, ten little letters, on a big sign
Justin.. Bieber, you know Imma hit 'em with the ether
Buns out, weiner, but I gotta keep my eye out for Selena
Beauty, Beauty and the Beast
Beauty from the east, beautiful confessions of the priest
Beast, beauty from the streets, we don't get deceased
Every time a beauty on the beats
(Body rock, girl, I can feel your body rock)
(Yeah, Yeah, yeah, Let's go, Let's go!)

Cause all..
I need, is a Beauty and a Beat
Who can make my life complete
It's all..
Bout you, when the music makes you move
Baby do it like you do
Cause...
