Justin Bieber has claimed that he is working with hip-hop stars Kanye West and Drake on his new album.

In an interview with radio station Capital FM, the teen sensation revealed that he is "working with a lot of cool people" on his new studio album 'Believe', which will reportedly be released next year.

Bieber – who recently teamed up with singer Mariah Carey to re-record a duet of her classic festive hit 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' for his forthcoming Christmas album 'Under The Mistletoe' – said: "I'm working with a lot of cool people. I'm working with Kanye. Drake is gonna work on the album with me, and a lot of different artists."

Earlier this week (October 24), Odd Future's Tyler, The Creator admitted that he'd love to collaborate with Bieber and confessed that meeting the singer left him feeling "starstruck".

He said: "I met Justin back in February. He's a cool kid and when I got in there, he was talking about the 'Yonkers' video. It was weird, because I was sitting here starstruck, like, 'Oh, fuck, it's Bieber. He's asking me questions.' I'm like, 'Shut the fuck up so I can talk to you.'"

In June, meanwhile, rapper Lil Wayne claimed that Bieber had been texting him "every night" to try and arrange a collaboration, but he'd turned down his request as he didn't want to "fuck his shit up".
