NEW YORK (Billboard) - After releasing a single with Ludacris, getting remixed by Kanye West and hanging with Drake, Justin Bieber is briefly setting aside his hip-hop ties to explore country music.
Rascal Flatts singer Gary LeVox has revealed that the country group has recorded a song with the pop star.
"(Justin) asked us to do a duet with him on his next record," LeVox told Nashville radio station WSIX. "It's actually a really good song!"
Bieber confirmed the pairing on Twitter Sunday, writing, "I love @RascalFlatts and I'm honored that they are making music with me." He also posted a link to a YouTube video that featured Rascal Flatts' song "My Wish."
LeVox and his bandmates are the latest artists attached to Bieber's in-the-works follow-up to "My World 2.0": Ne-Yo told Billboard.com in October that he was "writing some songs" with Bieber, and the pop star hung out in the studio with Diddy last week. A new track, "Latin Girl," leaked online earlier this month, but it was not known if it would appear on the album.
