Justin is hard at work on his upcoming album and we spoke to a source that says Justin may be working on music with Black Eyed Peas singer will.i.am!

Justin Bieber has become an international pop star and his loyal fans have high expectations for his upcoming album. The 17-year-old singer has talked about mixing his influences with a new sound and yesterday he may have hinted at a collaboration with will.i am! We did some digging and got an update on whether they have discussed working on a duet together.

“WE READY!” tweeted Justin to will.i.am. on Monday.

Hmm, ready for what? We asked a source close to will.i.am if the singer had plans to work with Justin on his new album. “Will.i.am has helped Usher on some tracks, especially ‘OMG’. And there has been talk for him to do some things with Justin, now that the Black Eyed Peas are taking a brief hiatus, Will has plenty of time to help out on working with Justin. they have certainly had discussions,” confesses our insider. “But what I have also heard is Justin is taking his time with his next album, going through plenty of producers and collaborators to make everything is just right.”

At the Billboard Music awards Justin told Hollyscoop that he wanted to collaborate with Jay Z or will.i.am on a “cool fun record.” Justin and will.i.am are also close friends, Justin called him his “big bro” in a tweet about the Superbowl and will.i.am came out to show his support at the premiere of Never Say Never.

Justin’s tweet was in response to will.i.am posting a picture of him and Dr Dre. “Ruthless records family tree will.i.am & @drdre “I be rockin them beats” tweeted will.i.am. Maybe Justin was just excited for his friend’s work with Ruthless Records and Dr. Dre, and he didn’t mean to hint anything!

Would you like to see will.i.am and Justin work together?
