Chris Brown And Justin Bieber To Shoot Video For ‘Next 2 You’
Fresh from appearing on stage together during Justin Bieber’s tour in Australia, Chris Brown and 'the Biebs' will be coming to a television screen near you soon, as the pair are due to start work on a video for Brown’s 'Next 2 You' track from his 'F.A.M.E.' album, which features Bieber...
The news was confirmed on Twitter via Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun: “NP- #Next2You with @justinbieber and @chrisbrown. Video treatment is crazy! Yeah, it's coming…"
The track is a cheesy mid-tempo ballad that will certainly set the hearts of Bieber’s worldwide army of young fans racing.
Brown recently told MTV NEWS US that he accidentally missed out on recording the track at the same time as Bieber:
"I actually stood him up on accident," Brown laughed. "He was kind of mad ... I was all the way on the other side of town handling some business, girl business, and I was rushing back, and by that time, he's like, 'Man, I'm leaving, bro. I did it — just check it out.' And I looked at it and listened to it and I was like, 'Man, this is crazy.’ He's a great kid."
Although Brown accepts that Bieber’s career has followed a similar road to his own, he is keen to stress that he does not consider himself to be Bieber’s mentor:
"I wouldn't say he's my protégé. He's doing his thing at a young age, and I was doing mine at a
young age, so being able to see him come up is dope."
