The Biebs himself told Capital FM that he was working with "a lot of cool people." Those cool people being none other than Kanye West and Drake

"I just learned about picking the right songs and making sure that I create a sound that people aren't really used to hearing so that it's new and fun and people enjoy it," he told Capital's Rich Clarke of his upcoming music.
