While it’s been widely reported that Kanye West was working on Justin Bieber’s album Believe, we now have photographic evidence. The hip-hop superstar and teen sensation hit the studio for a late-night recording session in New York on Friday. Bieber is close to wrapping his album, due June 19.
“Putting the finishing touches on the album and it’s gonna be special! @justinbieber and @kanyewest#Believe,” tweeted Biebs’ right hand man Kenny Hamilton.
The two previously worked together on the remix to “Runaway Love” featuring Raekwon and expressed their mutual appreciation for each others’ music.
In addition to Yeezy, Biebs has logged studio time with Timbaland, Drake, Pharrell, Danja, Hit-Boy, will.i.am, and Diplo.
