Justin Bieber may have the pop music world on lock, but that doesn’t mean he won’t add some hip-hop flavor to his sound. The young singer recently revealed that he is working with Kanye West and Drake on new music for his next album.
“I’m working with a lot of cool people. I’m working with Kanye. Drake is gonna work on the album with me and a lot of different artists,’ the singer told Capital FM.
Not only has Bieber connected with Drake and Yeezy, but he’s met with Tyler, the Creator a few months ago. Tyler spoke with MTV about meeting the Biebster and the type of sound he’d want to create with him:
“I met Justin back in February. He’s a cool kid and shit,” Tyler told MTV News. “When I got in there, he was talkin’ about the ‘Yonkers’ video and shit. It was weird, because I was sitting here starstruck, like, ‘Oh, fuck, it’s Bieber. He’s asking me questions.’ I’m like, ‘Shut the fuck up so I can talk to you.‘
“I just want to make ’90s R&B, like break beats, hard drums with pretty chords and sh–,” Tyler said of the type of track he’d make for Justin. “I really want to do that. Like, I be listening to Brandy or the first three Mary J. [Blige] albums and sh– and Faith [Evans] and Zhané and sh–. That sh– is awesome.”
What do you think a record with Justin Bieber and Tyler, the Creator would sound like?
