The latest in 2013’s fine run of collaborations you didn’t see coming (see also: Juicy J and Katy Perry, Lorde and Rick Ross): Chicago’s 2013 breakthrough star Chance the Rapper is working with Justin Bieber.
It seems that they’re not the only two at it, either. After fellow Chi-towner Jeremih tweeted yesterday that he was in the studio with Chance, Bieber piped up to make it public that him and Chance “were next” – a remark that Chance retweeted. Bieber then upped the ante by cc’ing (well, @ing) Big Sean, Diplo, R. Kelly and Lil Wayne into the conversation, claiming that “the[y] have no idea what is coming #journals”. So we guess there’s a song called ‘Journals’ with the lot of them on the way.
You know what this means, right? One step closer to that James Blake and Bieber collaboration you’ve always dreamed of.
