Justin Bieber's 'balls have dropped', says his manager
Scooter Braun says his client finds hitting high notes with Maria Carey difficult
Scooter Braunt, who looks after the pint-sized popstar, said that Bieber had found recording a duet of 'All I Want For Christmas' with Mariah Carey difficult as his voice had broken and was not as high as it used to be. The track will feature on Bieber's forthcoming festive album 'Underneath The Mistletoe'.
Braunt told Billboard.com:
Vocally, his balls have dropped.
He went on to say of the song with Carey: "That was the hardest song to do. A year ago that would have been no problem."
Island Def Jam president Steve Bartels also spoke of the change in Bieber's vocals, adding: "The album really shows his growth as a young man, and his voice has just blossomed. It will pleasantly surprise many people. It's not your typical holiday album."
Bieber will release 'Underneath The Mistletoe' on November 1. The teen sensation is also currently working on his second solo album, which will be called 'Believe' and is set to feature collaborations with hip hop stars Kanye West and Drake.
