Sure Justin Bieber has some hip-hop swag, thanks to friendships with rnb singers like Diddy, Ludacris, Drake and Kanye West, but it seems that the pop star now is going a little bit country.
Rascal Flatts lead singer Gary LeVox made one big reveal recently when he spoke to country radio station WSIX, according to CNN. “[Justin] asked us to do a duet with him on his next record,” LeVox explained. “It's actually a really good song! The kid is really talented. He plays 5 or 6 different instruments in a very good way.”
On Sunday, Bieber confirmed LeVox's statements on his Twitter while sending some praise the country band's way. “I love @RascalFlatts and Im honored that they are making music with me,” he wrote. “And for those that dont know … they have great records like this one. #GREATMUSIC.” He then included a link to a Bieber fan video with the Rascal Flatts track “My Wish” playing in the background.
Bieber also tweeted on Sunday that he was hanging out with Lil Twist, who he has been collaborating with on a mixtape for some time now. “I don't know man,” he recently shared with MTV News about their work together. “Lil Twist is my homey and we're working on stuff for fun.”
The teen singer is indeed hard at work on new music. Last Tuesday, Bieber was spotted at Diddy's studio in New York City working on tracks for a forthcoming album. “I've missed the studio. Just making music,” Bieber tweeted that day. “Made some great records tonight.”

Despite his young and tender age, it should be painfully apparent that Justin Bieber is quite the ladies' man. So it comes as no surprise that the pop star took to the studio to confess his love-stricken teenage emotions through his music. In the latest of his odes to women comes the previously unheard track called “Ride,” which surfaced on the Internet Wednesday (December 22).
Over a beat that sounds similar to old-school video game sound effects, Bieber serenades his girl, confessing that he'd go above and beyond to spend time with her. “We could go anywhere, to the moon and through the air/ We could go to the movies or the mall, baby I don't care/ Yeah this is true, wanna be with you/ And I just wanna ride with you,” he sings.
No word on whether the sugary tune is old or a possible submission for Bieber's next project. However, the tune sounds like it might be a demo for a female vocalist as the pop singer ends the first verse with the line: “I could be your queen but you could be my boo.”
“Ride” isn't the only new Bieber song to have surfaced online recently asJustin's club-ready “Latin Girl“ also leaked just a few weeks ago. In addition to the tracks, Biebs has also been in and out of the recording studio with some familiar faces working on his next album, which is tentatively set to drop late next year.
While it's not clear whether Diddy will make an appearance on the Canadian heartthrob's next project, one act the singer is confirmed to have worked with is Rascal Flatts. The country trio's lead singer, Gary LeVox, spoke about the Bieber collabo in a recent interview with country radio station WSIX. “[Justin] asked us to do a duet with him on his next record,” he said. “It's actually a really good song! The kid is really talented. He plays five or six different instruments really well.”
