Late last year, Justin Bieber and his “homey” Lil Twist revealed they were working on a mixtape. Well, fans may soon get to hear a song and see a video from that mixtape.
When MTV News spoke to rapper Twist at 106 & Park’s Closer to My Dreams tour stop in Los Angeles on Thursday, he told us that once his new single with Bieber reaches the masses, it would have a good chance at making a play in our race for Summer Jam of 2011 .
“My third single, ’Wherever You Are,’ ” Twist said of his summer jam pick. “It features my little brother Justin Bieber and I believe that that record is going to really do it.”
Twist went on to dish about the duo’s plans to step up their game for the song’s forthcoming video.”We’re gonna get some treatments [written],” he said. “We’re not just gonna pick any treatment because that video could just be out of here. We got a few different ones; I don’t mean to name any [directors], but a few different ones. It’s going to turn out great.”
The collaboration between the two young stars has been long-simmering, with Bieber and Twist teasing a full mixtape. For now, though, fans will have to settle for one track. Last November, Twist explained that Bieber had come up with the idea to work on some music together.
“Me and Justin, we actually met through a mutual friend and after that we got real cool actually,” he recalled. “[We] started working in the studio, sending stuff through the MacBook and everything. And then he was like, ’Yo, bro, we should do a mixtape. Let’s go.’ We just started then.”
