Justin Bieber To Appear On The Wanted's New Album

(Radio.com) The Wanted will be supercharging their teen heartthrob status with an appearance by Justin Bieber on their upcoming album, due out later this year.

The fivesome confirmed to MTV U.K. that they have been working with their former tourmate on material for the album, a followup to 2011′s Battleground. Max George spilled the details, noting that Dr. Luke, Rita Ora and Bieber producer Nasri are also slated to make appearances as well. "Hopefully there'll be a couple of surprise collabs there as well," George added.

The band first hinted at their Bieber collab back in October when they revealed to MTV News that they might be writing material with the singer while backing him up on his Believe Tour. "We are just trying to write as much as possible and get the right feel of the album that everyone is happy with," The Wanted's Nathan Sykes said then.

Sykes hinted in the same earlier interview that the group could be working with Chris Brown as well, but the collaboration has not been confirmed or elaborated on since last year. "We are due to go in with Chris Brown and do a bit of work there," he said.

Breezy's ex Rihanna also lent some inspiration to The Wanted boys on the still-unnamed album's lead single, "Walks Like Rihanna," which has already received a positive endorsement from the singer herself.

"We met [Rihanna's] manager Jay Brown in New York and he said that he really liked it and that she really liked it which is always a good sign ['cause] if she hated it we'd be in a pretty bad place," Tom Parker said in the MTV U.K. interview. more on this story
