[artist id="1961441"]Chris Brown[/artist] recently took the stage with [artist id="3187077"]Justin Bieber[/artist] during the Biebs’ tour stop in Australia , where they performed “Up,” and now the two will begin work on a video for Brown’s F.A.M.E. track “Next 2 You.”
Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun, confirmed the video plans on Twitter. “NP- #Next2You w/ @justinbieber and @chrisbrown – video treatment is crazy … yeah it’s coming!!” he wrote.
With little known about what these two have in store for fans, MTV News spoke to Brown in March about working with the teen star on the track. “Being able to collab with [Bieber] was great,” Brown said. “He’s a young, energetic cat, so being able to work with him, with the fanbase he has, was incredible. I know a lot of little girls are going to love this record.
“I wouldn’t say [he's] my protégé. He’s doing his thing at a young age, and I was doing mine at a young age, so being able to see him come up is dope.”
The midtempo ballad is about the power of love and making the pledge to spend your life with that special someone. The chorus says, “One day when the sky is fallin’/ I’ll be standing right next to you, right next to you/ Nothing will ever come between us/ ‘Cause I’ll be standing right next to you, right next to you.”
While it’s a feel-good track, Brown joked that when recording the song, he missed his chance to hit the studio with Bieber. “I actually stood him up on accident,” Brown recalled. “He was kind of mad … I was all the way on the other side of town handling some business, ‘girl business,’ and I was rushing back, and by that time, he’s like, ‘Man, I’m leaving, bro. I did it — just check it out.’ And I looked at it and listened to it and I was like, ‘Man, this is crazy.’ … He’s a great kid.”
