Chris Brown and Justin Bieber have joined forces for a new song set to premiere early next year.
Brown posted a note about the collaboration via Twitter on Christmas Day, writing, “ME and @justinbieber got a BANGER/SMASH record for all the fans out there at the top of the NEW YEAR!!! 2011 #BREEZYTAKEOVER”.
There’s been no official comment yet from Bieber’s camp about the collaboration, which would be Brown’s most high-profile yet since he plead guilty to assaulting his ex-girlfriend, Rihanna, in 2009.
Brown finished the domestic violence counselling sessions he was required to take as part of his sentencing for the assault, posting a photo of his certificate of completion on Twitter last week.
Bieber, meanwhile, has been a fan of Brown’s since before his rise to fame.
One of his most popular YouTube videos remains a cover of a Brown’s With You performed on acoustic guitar, a clip uploaded in February 2008.
It’s unclear whether the new pairing would for Brown’s next album or Bieber’s, which is already confirmed to include a musical partnering with country group Rascal Flatts.
