Justin Bieber reveals Tinie Tempah collaboration

Pair will hook up for Bieber's Christmas telly bash

Justin Bieber has revealed that he has recorded a duet with Tinie Tempah.

The teenage sensation posted a message on his Twitter account to confirm that he and the rap star had collaborated on a song for his forthcoming television Christmas special.

Bieber wrote:

“Shooting this ITV Special for #UnderTheMistletoe here in London and u know I had to bring my guy @TinieTempah thru 4 a UK REMIX! #DrummerBoy


The track ‘Drummer Boy’ – a re-working of Bing Crosby‘s festive classic – features on Bieber’s yuletide album ‘Under The Mistletoe’ as a duet with US rapper Busta Rhymes.

Tinie Tempah, meanwhile, also appeared to mentioned the collaboration on his Twitter account, writing: “Just done something Incredible!”

Justin Bieber recently found himself at the centre of controversy when 20-year-old Maria Yeater claimed that the pint-sized popstar was the father of her three-month-old child. Bieber, who described her allegations as “malicious” and “false”, will now take a DNA test to settle the dispute.

Tinie Tempah, meanwhile, has set his sights on working with Coldplay‘s Chris Martin and Take That‘s Gary Barlow on his next album. His debut effort ‘Disc-Overy’, which was released in October 2010, was nominated for the 2011 Mercury Music Prize but lost out to PJ Harvey’s ‘Let England Shake’.
