People's Daily building in Beijing

Professor Zhou Qi says his design for the People's Daily building in Beijing is intended to appear from above as the Chinese character for "people". From ground level, however, the 150-metre skyscraper looks like something else entirely.

Judging from a cursory glance at the track list - actually, just from a glance at the first two tracks - Far East Movement have taken their unexpected collaborations up a notch with Justin Bieber singing the hook after a song featuring Tyga.

New challenge to Bieber

Record labels are feverishly searching for the next Justin Bieber - and it's not hard to see why. Bieber is a multiple triple-platinum-selling artist whose studio debut alone sold nearly 6.5 million copies, and the MV for his massive hit Baby is the most popular video of all time on YouTube.
