Several weeks ago, Justin Bieber started a collaboration rumor after tweeting a mysterious message to R. Kelly, telling him that "they aren't ready." Now, Kelly has revealed that he's indeed worked with Bieber for a new track.
During a listening party for his new "Black Panties" album on Tuesday night, November 12, Kelly told Vibe that he'd recorded an R&B song with the 19-year-old pop star. "I just did a song [with him]," Kelly said. "[Justin] just called me to do a song and it's hot. He wanted to go and do some R&B stuff so we got together and did that."
Bieber has also confirmed the collaboration news and hinted at possibility that the song will serve as the seventh release of his 10-week Music Mondays series. He tweeted the link of Vibe's article and simply wrote, "Next week :)."
Kelly has been busy working with pop stars lately. Earlier this week, he teamed up with Bruno Mars and Pharrell Williams for a remix of "Gorilla". Previously, he collaborated with Lady GaGa for the Mother Monster's second "ARTPOP" single, "Do What U Want".
As for Bieber, the Canadian heartthrob is currently in the middle of the South American leg of his tour. He has made another headline after getting caught on a fan's camera mistreating Argentine's flag at his recent show in the country.
In the one-minute clip, which was uploaded to YouTube, Bieber is seen kicking an Argentina flag thrown onstage. He then used his mic stand to remove it from the floor. Bieber's action has sparked public outrage. According to the country's law, insulting Argentina's flag is a crime punishable by up to four years in prison.
