During the press conference of a Korean awards show, G-Dragon says that he has 'finished' recording new music with Bieber and the tune will come out 'sometime next year.'
South Korean star G-Dragon reveals that he has collaborated with one of the world's biggest pop stars. During the press conference of 2013 Mnet Asian Music Awards held in Hong Kong's Asia World Expo Arena Friday morning, November 22, G-Dragon said that he had "finished" recording new music with Justin Bieber and the tune would come out "sometime next year."
"But more than it being a really big project, I think it'll be an album where artists with the same heart decided to have fun," the leader of popular boyband Big Bang explained. "It was less burdensome than a big album, so I'll be able to show a better song to the fans. If you have anticipation for it, I'll reply with an album that will meet those expectations."
Bieber and G-Dragon were spotted hanging out together when the former's "Believe" tour stopped in South Korea last month. The 25-year-old performer, whose real name is Kwon Ji Yong, later made a guest appearance at Bieber's concert in the country to sing his own single called "Crayon".
While the collaboration won't arrive until next year, a new project by Bieber has just been dropped. The Canadian heartthrob has released a lyric video for his duet with R. Kelly, "PYD". The lyrics appear on the screen in black and bright purple letters as Bieber and his collaborator sing the sultry R&B ballad.
