In an interview with UK radio station Capital FM, Justin Bieber teased a collaboration with fellow Canadian chart-topper Drake, that will appear on Bieber’s upcoming album Believe.
With just a touch of arrogance, Bieber says the song is “called ‘Right Here,’ and it’s a smash. People are gonna love it, it just rides so smoothly. You know, it’s me and Drake, so it’s good.”
Okay, to be fair, it’s only arrogance if it’s not true. Drake and Justin Bieber teaming up on a smooth R&B track does sound like a recipe for success.
On Monday night in London, Justin previewed 8 songs from Believe in an exclusive press listening party and Q&A with an audience of roughly 100 people. Luckily, MSN UK was there to snag all of the details.
After being treated to a preview of an unfinished version of “Right Here,” MSN UK described the song as “a swaggerific slice of ballsy hip-hop-swaying R&B.”
Justin recorded over 40 songs for Believe, and the ones that made the cut feature appearances by Taylor Swift, Drake, Ludacris, and Kanye West, and production work by Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins, Timbaland, Hit-Boy, Diplo (!!!), Mike Posner, and Nasri.
The hotly anticipated Believe comes out June 16th. With a supporting cast like that, it’s definitely going to be the smash of the summer.
