Believe it or not, there doesn’t seem to be anyone that Justin Bieber isn’t getting on his in-the-works next album. It seems that fellow Canadian and Take Care rapper Drake has been tapped to appear on the album, set for release later this year.
The news of their collabo was confirmed on Thursday (February 9) by Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun on Twitter. But any Belieber could have easily figured out whom Bieber was referring to when he tweeted this message to his devotees: “You really wanna know who im going into the studio with tonight??#bigbro #CANADA.”
This Drizzy collabo has been a long time in the making. At the 2010 VMAs, Bieber shared with MTV News that he wanted to get his pal on his next proper (non-holiday) album. Then, in a radio interview late last year, he confirmed that Drake, along with Kanye West , was in talks to work on Believe.
However, as the list of collaborators for the album grows, one more name is being tossed about as a potential collaborator. Sources tell Hollywoodlife.com that Ke$ha may appear on Believe. The source says that K-dollar sign “would also be a part of the song in a duet capacity.” The duet has yet to be confirmed, and K is busy in the studio working on her own rock and roll-inspired album .
This wouldn’t be the first time Bieber and Ke$ha have paired up. They appeared together at the 2010 Grammy Awards, where the newbies presented the award for Best New Artist to the Zac Brown Band.
Super-producers Pharrell, will.i.am and Lil Wayne (who recently visited Bieber in the studio ) are among the other names that have been tossed about as possible folks working with Bieber on the album. Believe is the follow-up Christmas-themed Under the Mistletoe, which was released in late 2011.
