L.A. Reid Says Justin Bieber and Michael Jackson Collaboration Coming

(Radio.com) Last summer, Justin Bieber leaked a version of Michael Jackson's song "A Slave To The Rhythm," which featured him trading vocals with the King of Pop. The song would eventually end up on MJ's recently released posthumous album, XSCAPE, sans Bieber. But according to L.A. Reid their might be another Bieber/Jackson collaboration in the works.

In an interview with Access Hollywood (via Billboard), Reid said he felt protective of Bieber, who he signed to Island Records in 2009, and didn't feel "Slave to the Rhythm" was a good fit.

"'Slave 2 The Rhythm' didn't include him per my direction If it hadn't been leaked, it would have been featured but it sort of took the wrong turn," But you know what? We're gonna revisit that."

He then added, "We're going to revisit it and do something really special with Justin Bieber and Michael." When prodded further whether the Bieber/Jackson collabo would be on an upcoming MJ album, Reid said, "I'm pretty sure." So it seems we can expect another posthumous record from Michael Jackson at some point.

Bieber has never hid his love for the King of Pop, tweeting last year that Jackson was "the greatest of all time." He also tweeted a message that showed similar black and white photos of Jackson and Bieber on stage performing with the message "He set the bar." more on this story
