Justin Bieber And R. Kelly Recorded A Song Together … ‘And It’s Hot’

After teaming up with Lady Gaga, Kells is lending his vocals to another pop superstar.

Fresh off his collaboration with Lady Gaga, R. Kelly is hopping in the studio with another pop superstar.

On Wednesday (November 13), the same day he released a teaser trailer for his upcoming movie, “Believe,” Justin Bieber confirmed that he and the Chicago singer have teamed up for some music coming “next week.” In a tweet, the 19-year-old linked to a Vibe magazine article in which Kelly reveals the pair are working together.

“I just did a song [with him],” R. Kelly told the magazine during a private listening for his upcoming album, Black Panties. “[Justin] just called me to do a song, and it’s hot. He wanted to go and do some R&B stuff, so we got together and did that.”

While there’s no word on whether the song will be a part of Bieber’s Music Mondays series, the R&B vibe that R. Kelly brings would fit in well since Justin’s has been releasing slow to mid-tempo tracks that deal with love, heartbreak and reminding us that he’s not “all bad.”

As for R. Kelly, he’s certainly having a moment in the pop music spotlight. His ARTPOP collaboration with Lady Gaga, “Do What U Want,” is currently in the top 20 on the iTunes singles charts and they recently shot what sounds like an epic music video. “I shot it last week with [photographer] Terry Richardson, and R. Kelly’s in the video,” Gaga told MTV News on the red carpet of her ARTRAVE event in New York City on Sunday night. “We had a great time. It was amazing. He’s wonderful to work with.”
