It appears as if Justin Bieber has already found a new collaborator for 2017. Last year, the former teen pop icon worked with a variety of artists on new material, including Major Lazer, DJ Snake, and Post Malone. Now The Bieb has set his sights on one of the hardest workers in the rap game, 2 Chainz - who is no stranger to collaborating himself. Last year, 2 Chainz dropped four sets of new material, including his collaboration with Lil Wayne, ColleGrove.
2 Chainz took to his Instagram to post a picture of him and Bieber with a note saying, "New music on the way ??? Take JB to the trap ???" The announcement shouldn't come as too much of a surprise as Bieber has been making his way around the rap game for awhile now.
Despite not releasing an album in 2016, Bieber finished near the top in a variety of popularity lists, including the Billboard Hot 100 Top Songs of 2016, top Shazamed songs of 2016, and had one of the most-viewed videos of the year. He also crisscrossed the globe on his tour in support of his 2015 album Purpose, and making headlines for a variety of extra-curricular reasons, including walking off multiple stages in England, and punching a fan in the face in Spain.
In February, Bieber will set back out on his Purpose World Tour, starting with a February 15th show in Monterrey, Mexico. From their he will continue to hit every continent except Antarctica, playing shows in a variety of exotic locations. His tour will finally come to an end on September 6th in Toronto, Canada.
