Drake and Kanye West Working On Next Justin Bieber Album
At this point in his career, Justin Bieber doesn't need high-profile collaborations to sell records, but that hasn't stopped him from joining forces with two of the biggest names in hip-hop.
In a recent interview with Rich Clarke, a DJ at the U.K. radio station Capital FM, Bieber revealed that he's working with Drake and Kanye West on the follow-up to his mega-selling debut, 'My World 2.0.'
"I just learned about picking the right songs and making sure that I create a sound that people aren't really used to hearing so that it's new and fun and people enjoy it," Bieber said.
Despite his status as the world's leading bubblegum pop star, the Canadian phenom is no stranger to hip-hop and R&B. He was discovered by Usher, who's served as a mentor for the young singer, and his breakout hit, 'Baby,' features a verse from rapper Ludicrous.
Before the Biebs drops his Yeezy-and-Drizzy-assisted sophomore set -- due out in early 2012 -- he'll release 'Under the Mistletoe,' a holiday collection that will feature Busta Rhymes, among other guests.
