Boyz II Men teams with Bieber for Christmas album
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."

VP and there are lil wussie overreacting bags of emotions like you... HAHAHA
Most of these comments are malicious; there are some nasty mean people in this world. You all have a nice day!
VP you are so correct. I was wondering something. Are you black? If so would you like do plunder my Dunkin/Hiney BrownieBox? Cmon, I wont tell. Just ram me until hotbrownGravy spews all over us!!
I love having my brownieBox pummeled by hard black men.
I love a good raw assPounding. MMMM...oh YES until my rear-end is a brown bloody mess.
Thanks for the vomit-licious news update, CNN!!
At aunt bea and beautiful vixon. I see u don't read b4 posting. I c what peace was saying and you make sh!t jokes and bust a lung over it ? Easy to amuse ? Ppl wonder why we are such a mess.
Boyz II Men II Boyz again
Was just simply repeating what JB said in the article. I guess that compares him to tracie, not me. HaHa
Part of me wants to like Beiber, just because he's uncool and hated.
But his music is very boring, which is the big problem. If he had substance, he'd be OK, despite the hype and teeny bopper fan girls. Michael Jackson had that, but he also had substance.
Haters!!! You know who you are. You'd trade places in a heart beat. Usher, who has had a pretty good career, saw enough talent to sign JB and help put him in the spot light. I trust his judgement, resume speaks for itself. Enough said, thanks Usher. JB, keep doing your thing, kid.
@DJW. Believe it or not, not everybody wants to be in his position. Pop musics just not my thing. I would never "trade places" with him and turn into an emasculine nancy boy for any amount of $$$. And the though of 10 year old girls drooling over me, like they do with him, would just honestly creep me out, lol.
Usher...LOL. What stupid logic.
I barely remember what Boyz II Men sound like... Have no idea what this kid sounds like. I just know he's insanely popular with teenage girls and cougars alike, but I can't imagine their being any similarities between their songs, styles of music.
As a gay man, I am offended by Justin Bieber being labeled as gay! He is nothing!
"The Canadian tween heartthrob has"
A tween is between 9 and 12 to my understanding, Bieber is not a tween.
So many talented entertainers like Buddy Holly, Jim Croce and Ronnie Van Zant die young, yet, this no-talent hack continues to exist. There's truly no justice.
@80's metal head: Love heavy metal. Have to say one of my fav is (not 80's) Godsmack.
As a Boyz II Men fan since Cooleyhighharmony, I just died a little inside.
More like Boyz II Old Men
@Peace: I had to go back and see what aunt bea was talking about...LMAO! You pretty much had that comment coming to you...LOL! How does it feel to be compared to Tracie? OMG...I thought I was going to burst a lung after reading that comment...too funny!
Anybody else wish that Time Machines existed, so we could go back to decades when music was actually GOOD? Or is it just me?
Seriously, this pop star/pretty boy image where they prance around like a moron singing "baby" every other second, is the epitome of all things wrong with the music industry, and this kids antics define it.
I agree with you totally. Although the last "pretty boy" boy bands out there were NSync and Backstreet Boys and they actually had some talent (even though some of their songs were annying). Since then it has been all down hill and now the music industry produces TALENTLESS pretty boy/femenine males (maybe?) who is a poser who can only attract 10 or 11 year old girls to his/her music
I do think those guys are a little too old for him though. Why dont he date one of those nice Jonas Brothers?
Where's your moon man jealous broke b##tards.
Im glad Justin finally got him a new boyfriend.
@ Peace. Practicing the runs? You are starting to sound like tracie with the diarreah talk. I just get them sometimes. I never had to practice. sheeeeeew.
@Justin Bieber: Geezes..seriously the visuals I can do without...lol
What is boyz 2 men thinking??
they were thinking "we havent had a hit in a decade. Lets do this."
Sure is jealousy in here
Yeah, just like we're jealous of the cast of Jersey Shore... not.
Dear CNN, quit thinking Justin Bieber is news and he won't be. He sucks and you know it. I'm tired of coming to your site and seeing Bieber stuff. NO ONE $%&*ing cares!
Pathetic. An amazing 90's group selling out for the times to stay relevant. Justine Bieber sucks, and even though her sales and fame are rising, it doesn't mean those who contribute to her sales are that intelligent.
Great, a christmas record by a bunch of washed up old men calling themselves "boyz", and a teenage lesbian dressed up like Elvis.
Tis the season.
Bieber is looking more like a little girl everyday.
"I used to listen to their music & practice the runs. That is how I learned how to sing". Need he say more...? LOL!
LOL glad you pointed out that line...made me laugh too. The joke is he CAN'T sing and I still don't understand why he's stuck around so long. He's not cute and he's a little poser.
I have officially lost all respect for Boyz II Men for publicly associating themselves with this no talent she-male wanna be musician. I used to be a fan but since Boyz II Men has been out of the lime light for so long maybe this is just a publicity stunt for them, and a poor one at that!
