Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj and Rihanna are among the artists who will contribute to a Universal Music digital-only album, with the proceeds going to the Japanese Red Cross to aid the victims of the recent earthquake and tsunami, RadarOnline.com has learned.
According to a statement from Universal Music, "We are doing it only digitally because it is faster, and this will be a worldwide release. The plan is to have it available later this week."
"Japan is one of my favorite places on earth ... it's an incredible culture with amazing people,” Bieber tweeted. “My prayers go out to them. We all need to help, by being one of the first on board for the project."
The label is also looking at Lady Gaga and Bon Jovi as other prospective artists to be featured on the album.
