Happy Birthday: I Love You. Rhythms of the World is a collection of African dance beats by the Japanese musician Taku Iwasaki, released on December 8, 2008.
"Earth" is an electropop song by American singer Skylar Grey, which appeared on her debut studio album, Songs About Love, in 2009. The song peaked at number three on the UK Singles Chart.
Grey has also been featured on a string of collaborations with other artists, such as Missy Elliott and Dr. Dre. "Earth" was the fourth single from Songs About Love, following the release of "Stupid [...]", "Better" and "Someday We'll Know".
"Earth" was written by Grey and its producer, San E, along with the beat made by Julio Rebozo. As with the previous songs, which she wrote all herself, Grey wrote the lyrics to "Earth" and worked with a string of musicians and producers, including Phil Tan, Gregori Shiroki, Dr.
Panda and others, for the recording. The song received positive reviews from music critics, many of whom highlighted its resemblance to Avril Lavigne and Ne-Yo's work.
Following the release of "Earth" in July 2009, Grey released four more singles—"Red" in September, "Jealous" in October, "Love Is a Lie" in November, and "Yours" in January 2010. In February 2010, Grey released a demo of "Jealous", which included an alternative version of "Earth".
Grey performed a piano-driven live acoustic version of "Earth" on the Japanese television show Music Station in June 2010. The performance received positive reviews.
In September 2010, Grey released a music video for "Earth". The video was filmed in a abandoned area of Tokyo and has an urban feel.
The first music video by an American artist to debut at the top of Japan's national music charts. Grey also took to singing Japanese-language tracks, including the theme songs for the Japanese-based film Hana Yori Dango 2 and the drama Hana Yori Dango.
Grey toured Japan in late 2010 with support from the Japanese band The Jellyfish with 5 singers and musicians, and from this she sang "Earth" on stage, which got a really huge response.
Grey has also made an appearance in the Japanese horror film Crimson Hills, alongside Shintaro Kago. The film was released on August 0b46394aab
