Kanye West Working With Justin Bieber on ‘Believe’
Bieber’s pal Kenny Hamilton tweeted a pretty blurry photo from the studio with the caption, “Putting the finishing touches on the album and it’s gonna be special! @justinbieber and @kanyewest #Believe.” While West is blurry in the photo, we’re guessing he’s the one tinkering with on his laptop. No further details about the duet were given, but we can’t wait to hear it.
Considering West (and Throne partner Jay-Z) invented swag and Bieber seems to be perfecting it, we can only imagine what this track is going to sound like. And since Biebs admitted having a celeb crush on Ye’s lady love, Kim Kardashian, back in the day, maybe she kurvaceous K.K. provided some lyrical inspiration to the duo.
Bieber himself further confirmed the news with his own tweet directed to the rap superstar.

Based on ‘Boyfriend,’ it’s clear that Bieber is taking his music into a hip-hop direction, so it sounds like West is a perfect fit — along with their mutual pal Drake, who is pretty excited about their own collabo. “It sounds like everything you’d imagine a great Justin Bieber and Drake song would sound like,” Drizzy said. “We meet on the ground of melody he’s always like ‘Yo, you’re melodies are so crazy’ and ‘give me the craziest melody,’ so we sat there for a night and it was actually a great studio process.” One fellow collaborator that fans won’t be too surprised about? Usher, whom Bieber also tweeted about recording with.

It’s pretty safe to say that the world will be waiting with bated breath until June 19 when ‘Believe’ drops. Which collaboration are you looking forward to most? Tell us in the comments!
