Justin Bieber, Rita Ora For The Wanted’s Next Album
Monday, June 10, 2013 - 11:03
Speaking to us backstage from Capital FM’s Summertime Ball, Max told us about who the band have been working with on the new LP: “Dr Luke, Rita Ora, Nasri who does a lot of Bieber’s stuff [and] Justin himself.”
He added: “Nath’s back so yeah I think it’s gonna be our best album yet and hopefully there’ll be a couple of surprise collabs there as well.”
We also took the opportunity to probe the boys about the Bajan babe they’re currently crooning about on their latest single Walks Like Rihanna and whether RiRi has given them any feedback on the track.
Tom said: “We met her 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 cos if she hated it we’d be in a pretty bad place.”
“We’d put it out anyway!" Max chimed in with Jay adding: “I think she’s avoiding us since we wrote that one!”
Sunday’s Summertime Ball also saw Nathan Sykes reunited onstage with this mates for first time since his throat surgery earlier this year.
On what it was like to have all five of the boys back together Jay revealed: ”It just feels so tender.”
