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.”
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”.
