It's already the holidays for Justin Bieber and Boyz II Men. The Canadian tween heartthrob has wrangled the '90s R&B hitmakers to create holiday magic on his upcoming album, reports MTV.
”2day i woke up and realized that the group that made me want to sing @BoyzIIMen are now on the christmas album singing with me. #DREAMBIG,” Biebs tweeted Tuesday of working with his idols.
“i used 2 listen to their music and practice the runs. that is how i learned how to sing. now im in the studio with them making music 2gether..."im telling you...never say never...never stop dreaming....never give up. #DREAMBIG. @BoyzIIMen Im honored and blessed. thank u."
Boyz II Men’s Shawn Stockman returned the compliment, tweeting “we got love for u lil bro!! Thank YOU, and Thanx for everything u do for ur fans!! I KNOW they appreciate it.”
This isn’t the first time J Biebs has worked with the R&B group. The trio appeared in Justin’s movie, "Never Say Never," earlier this year. And don’t think this album is going to be rehashed classics, because it will reportedly be comprised of all-new, original Christmas tunes.
In fact, Boyz II Men are the latest stars to join the holiday merry-making. We've learned via Twitter that Sean Kingston and Taylor Swift have also collaborated on the record.
There is no release date yet for the star-studded album, but Biebs has hinted that you won’t have to wait until the holidays. "Thinking about starting christmas early...like november. #newmusic."
