Justin Bieber Recruits Drake, Pharrell, Hit-Boy for Next LP
Looks like Justin Bieber's forthcoming album is set to feature some hip-hop heavyweights.
According to Miss Info, Bieber's next album, Believe, will include more of an urban sound, as the 18-year-old superstar has been working in the studio with Timbaland, Pharrell, Drake, Diplo, and Hit-Boy.
Singer/songwriter/producer Mike Posner, who worked on the teen star's upcoming single, "Boyfriend," recently sat with Hot 97.5's Bootleg Kev and spoke on the record calling it, "Super hip-hop."
"I have Bieber's new single, I wrote and produced that with him," Posner revealed. "Wait ’til you hear the beat, you’ll flip, you’ll want to play this song, it’s super hip-hop. He raps like a little eight bars, and then starts singing crazy right after it, and it sounds amazing. That was our whole goal was making something that was hater proof.”
This comes after Bieber tweeted last month that he shared some studio time with Lil Wayne. "Good time in the studio last night. back at it tonight. oh yeah...and big bro came thru… and when i say big bro i mean @LilTunechi. #BELIEVE IT," he tweeted it.
In related news, Posner is also prepping his own album, which is scheduled to release soon. Titled, Sky High, the album will feature guest appearances by his close friend Big Sean and J.Cole, who together worked on te track "On Top of the World."—Ralph Bristout
