Justin Bieber hit Twitter on Wednesday to keep his fans abreast of his latest music dealings. He’s currently in the studio working on his new album and he’s got some interesting musical minds backing him up on it. He tweeted that he’s working with Tricky Stewart and the lesser-known producer Soundz.
“in the studio writing with @TrickyStewart – last time this happened a song called BABY happened. LEGGO. #believe,” he tweeted. “At the studio writing for my album with @trickystewart and @soundzdope follow them … #BELIEVE.”
As the recording session proceeded, a bit of a Twittermance started between the three fellas. Now that Bieber is 17 and moving out of Tweenville, working with an edgier production team is certainly the way to go to make the transition from cutie pie teen to full-fledged crossover adult sensation.
Thanks to collabos with folks like Chris Brown and Kanye West, Bieber’s been hinting at his more adult side, and while he and Tricky have already turned out tweeny pop gold, the producer also has a history of making edgier tracks. Need some examples? How about Queen Beyonce’s “Single Ladies,” Rihanna’s “Umbrella” and “Hard,” Rick Ross’ “All I Really Want” and Britney Spears’ “Me Against The Music,” to name just a few. Also, Soundz has credits with artists like Flo-Rida and Rihanna.
What will they turn out this time around? Given the trio’s collective chart power and tastemaker status, anything is possible.
