Sure Justin Bieber has some hip-hop swag, thanks to friendships with rappers like Diddy, Ludacris, Drake and Kanye West, but it seems that the pop superstar now is going a little bit country.
Rascal Flatts lead singer Gary LeVox made one big reveal recently when he spoke to country radio station WSIX, according to CNN. “[Justin] asked us to do a duet with him on his next record,” LeVox explained. “It’s actually a really good song! The kid is really talented. He plays five or six different instruments really well.”
On Sunday, Bieber confirmed LeVox’s statements on target="_blank">his Twitter while sending some praise the country band’s way. “I love @RascalFlatts and Im honored that they are making music with me,” he wrote. “And for those that dont know … they have great records like this one. #GREATMUSIC.” He then included a link to a Bieber fan video with the Rascal Flatts track “My Wish” playing in the background.
Bieber also tweeted on Sunday that he was hanging out with Lil Twist,
who he has been collaborating with on a mixtape for some time now. “I don’t know man,”
he recently shared with MTV News about their work together. “Lil Twist is my homey and we’re working on stuff for fun.”
The teen singer is indeed hard at work on new music. Last Tuesday, Bieber was spotted at Diddy’s studio in New York City working on tracks for a forthcoming album. “I’ve missed the studio. Just making music,” Bieber tweeted that day. “Made some great records tonight.”
