Justin Bieber's new album "Believe" boasts several collaborations with big names from the music industry such as Drake, Nicki Minaj and Ludacris, but people are left wondering about what happened to his rumored collaborations with Taylor Swift and Kanye West. Scooter Braun, the Biebs' manager, gives MTV News the low down on what happened to the anticipated collabs.
He explains that Justin's track with country cutie Taylor did not fit in "Believe" but gives hope that Swift could still appear in a future album. He says, "It didn't go on Believe because there's another record they want to work on. So, it just didn't make sense at this time, and the song they did just didn't make sense on this album."
Braun provides the same explanation for cutting rapper Kanye's track, saying that it "didn't make sense" in the album. It is unknown if the Yeezy track will ever see the light of day.
Braun also teases fans by hinting that Maroon 5's frontman Adam Levine could appear in another Bieber album. "We talked with Adam Levine about doing stuff," he says, "And he [Adam] wanted to, but with everything else, we could just never get the studio time in together."
"Believe" is the Canadian pop star's third studio album and was released on June 19 under Island Records. It debuted at No. 1 on Billboard Hot 200.
