Justin Bieber is keeping busy. In the studio all weekend with Usher, Bieber took fans along for the journey for a special surprise.

It turns out Usher and Bieber weren’t the only ones in the studio. Bieber’s bodyguard Kenny Hamilton revealed that Kanye West will be making an appearance on Believe.

West is the latest artist added to the Believe roster. Additional collaborations include Taylor Swift , Maroon 5‘s Adam Levine and Drake.

With the promise of the complete “Boyfriend” music video this week and album artwork released on Friday, Bieber continues to showcase his work ethic.

Bieber revealed the album artwork for his June 19th release of Believe. In what is reminiscent to a yearbook photo, the black and white image shows a serious Justin Bieber.

The deluxe album cover is slightly different.

On Friday (April 27) Bieber and manager Scooter Braun were honored at the Tribeca Film Festival at New York University. Given the “Disruptive Innovation Award,” Braun revealed his persistence in getting his first meeting with Bieber after he discovered him on YouTube. After numerous phone calls to his mother and family members she agreed to fly in for a meeting with Braun. Despite many “no’s” from the industry, Bieber and Braun’s never say never attitude persevered.

Believe is due for release June 19. During an interview with Reggie Yates Bieber discussed what fans can expect.

“I wanted to do something that was a little bit more mature but something that I think my fans would get. I’m growing up so I’m making music that I can relate to but also older people can relate to. I want to grow an audience,” he said.
