    Justin Bieber has pulled in another collaborator for the soundtrack to his new film, Never Say Never, the 3D event that hits theatres next month! According to Perez Hilton, songwriter Ester Dean, the Grammy-nominated gal who co-penned massive hits like Katy Perry's "Firework," Rihanna's "What's My Name" and Usher's "Hottie Tottie," revealed that she recently finished up a collaboration on a track with the mop-topped Bieb, which will appear on the film's soundtrack.

    "I first met Justin with Usher at an American Idol event. He was like, 'Oh my God … I'm such a fan of your songwriting!' And I'm like, 'You're a fan? [laughs] I'm a fan of your music!' He's a very talented guy. He was very easy to work with and was very nice. We just finished up some music for the new movie he has coming out. I can't get too much into it. I don't want to give too much away. [Laughs] But it's going to be great. I've worked on all different types of music. Take Katy Perry … I've been wanting to collaborate with her since I heard 'I Kissed A Girl.' And I found out later that Katy wanted to work with me! So we did 'Firework' and 'Peacock' and wrote the lyrics together on both songs," Dean revealed.

    Dean works with some of the best, and so does Bieber, so this collab should yield a massive hit.
