Exclusive: Justin Bieber Enlists Danja, Bangladesh for ‘Edgy’ Album

Justin Bieber is growing up before the public’s eyes. When not breaking young girls’ hearts by romancing pop starlet Selena Gomez, the 16-year-old heartthrob is working to mature his sound with his sophomore album. He’s recruited super-producers Danja and Bangladesh, as well as singer-songwriter Kevin Cossom (“Knock You Down”) to help him with the progression.

“Me and Danja did a joint for [the project] as well as me and Bangladesh. It’s definitely a more edgy vibe,” Cossom exclusively tells Rap-Up TV, while Danja adds, “What I’m creating for him I think is definitely a more mature sound. That’s where he’s headed now.”

In addition to the aforementioned hitmakers, the “Baby” singer is calling upon Drake, Chris Brown, and Kanye West. “Him and Kanye had a call today about a song they’re trying to work on together,” says Biebs’ manager Scooter Braun. “Kanye wants to produce a bunch of songs for the new album.”
